    The cottage/flat is cosy and comfortable, well furnished - perfect for a relaxing and peaceful weekend away. The space had everything we needed and more. If we're ever in Thames Kauaeranga area again, we would stay again!

  • My gf and I had a lovely stay in this quaint cottage

    My gf and I had a lovely stay in this quaint cottage. It was nestled in amongst rolling farm hills and orchards. Once darkness had descended we had a magnificent view of the stars. Situated only a 5 min drive out of Thames it provided a perfect getaway from our hectic Auckland lives.
