    The place is not luxurious but it has a relatively remote setting and basic rustic charm that very much appealed to us.

    The house itself is a pretty classic Kiwi bach (without the holes!) but it is well maintained and has a very warm fire mum was inclined to use it on a cool summer evening but it quickly got too hot. We spent a lot of time outside in the paddock playing sports and enjoying the country air. If the weather isn't good there is also a large living area and multiple board games to be enjoyed.

  • Lovely, peaceful location, spacious with great ambiance

    Lovely, peaceful location, spacious with great ambiance. We felt at home immediately and the high roof and welcoming atmosphere set us at ease to enjoy some quality time. Will definitely return and recommend highly. Kids' rooms were cozy and the games and custom-made storybook added to their pleasure. We could enjoy peace and tranquility, but had a good deal of fun. Thanks Jo, your husband and you were fab. Water, kitchen, wc and shower were all great. We hope to return soon.
