  • I stayed with my 3 kids for a long weekend

    I stayed with my 3 kids for a long weekend. We just loved the little shed which was warm cozy and well thought out with lots of personal design touches that gave it a great look and feel. The bed was so comfy and linen well-designed and luxurious. Loved all the little details and thought that has been put into the shed and garden area - down to the fact that you can turn off the outdoor bath tub tap with your big toe so you don’t even have to sit up! A lovely place for a weekend getaway to relax and chill and perfect location with sea views and short walk up to the summit. Donna and Matt were great hosts - welcomed us with a warm spotlessly clean shed, eggs from their chooks, wine and chocolate - they appeared unperturbed by my noisy and excited children! We will be back.

    Wow, what a sweet little sanctuary you've created here Donna! The thought that's gone into everything and your talent for detail made me feel like I'd really escaped to paradise...if just for a couple of days. Great location for heading to hot water beach or south to Pauanui and beyond, or just stepping out the gate to take in the view and then a short hike up Mt Paku - stunning! I'm reluctant to give this little secret haven away....we'll be back!
