  • It's a very peaceful and relaxing location

    It's a very peaceful and relaxing location. The property is spacious and was perfect for what we needed - a home for family to get together over the Christmas period. The garden is huge with loads of native plants and birds as well as a very vocal frog chorus that made us smile! There is everything you need at the property and it's just a short drive from the very pretty Mapua and the awesome beaches and bike trail on Rabbit Island. A great place to stay - highly recommended!

    The country setting is glorious yet convenient to cafes & local sights. Seating all round to take advantage of the sun, the deck being a great place for an evening glass of wine will watching the sun set behind the hills.
