    We had a lovely weekend at this property. Thanks for sharing tips for things to do in the area and for advice on the best way to drive back to Auckland (lovely drive). The room had everything we needed, nice and cosy and a great shower. Thank you.

    Secluded but close to beach, and town. Lovely decor, modern facilities and shower was great. Kitchen met our needs and extra touches of flowers, BBQ, outside fire and patio area made it a lovely place to stay..
