    We really enjoyed our stay, the property is a peaceful retreat away from the city. The apartment is very nice and the pool is superb. We had a great 5 nights at Lindy's and wished we could have e stayed longer. It was one of the best places we stayed in NZ. Thanks Lindy for a great stay.

    Perfect perfect perfect! The only negative I can think of is that we didn't stay long enough and we didn't want to leave! Everything was so tidy and clean with respect for the environment. It all looks even better than the photos!

  • Ours could not have been a more enjoyable stay

    Ours could not have been a more enjoyable stay. The accommodation was beautiful; clean and extremely well appointed. It is rare that I sleep well when away from home but we all slept like logs! The surroundings (pool and grounds) were stunning and the location was ideal for our own needs. We would absolutely recommend Kauri Haven and intend to come back and stay again.

    The house is a little paradise with a pond and the native bush in the back garden. The rooms are nicely furnished and the cleanliness is excellent. We cannot recommend this little oasis enough as it is also quite close to shops and the beach.
