  • Beautiful setting, amazing design of landscape, rustic country feel

    Beautiful setting, amazing design of landscape, rustic country feel. Our son loved the toys & feeding the cat & chickens! Kitchen was a little limited in space to put our food (other than fridge which is big). As the info mentions house is unfinished in terms of plastering but this doesn't really matter. No curtains in one of the bedrooms - ?a plan to add some. Thank you for allowing us to stay for a while in your home.

  • Beautiful location

    Beautiful location. Restful spot, ideal for a relaxing holiday. The house was nice and lived in - which was good. Had everything you needed. My grandson loved the cat and the chicken (cat didn't love him so much mind you!). The only wee gripe was the access was a bit challenging for my mum due to her bad knee, but apart from that would highly recommend and would happily stay here again.

    We loved the rural setting of the property and being surrounded by panoramic views of the beautiful taranaki landscape. As promised the bach was very private which was very relaxing. The kids loved the experience of interacting with the chickens - feeding them and collecting eggs. We loved the eco principles of the property and the open and spacious layout of the house.
