  • The property is great

    The property is great. How many places have a river at the bottom of the garden?! This is such an idyllic setting. The beach is five minutes walk away. The home is very comfortable and well-set up for family groups. We all wish we could have stayed for longer. I highly recommend this property.

    This place is far more than a holiday home, it is a real home. It has character, is tidy, everything is working, super warm, gets a lot of sun and is nicely located with a lot of space for kids to run around. The river offers a nice play ground as well as beach close by. We had great time and can highly recommend this place.

    Such a perfect location for a relaxing family weekend and great cooking facilities for a larger group. The pool table was a good way of getting the men out of the way so we could relax on the couches in front of the fire!! Beautiful scenery from the house and the sound of the river was fab. I think the chooks liked us!! Thanks Eileen for sharing your home with us!!!

  • The house was warm, sunny, clean

    The house was warm, sunny, clean. It is what I would call a happy home. The location for us was fantastic as the crew were working at Whareroa. Prospective stayers please do not over look this place as you would never regret staying here.

  • We loved staying at Eileen's house

    We loved staying at Eileen's house. The location was awesome, a beautiful spot by the river. Felt like staying in a park! The house was very comfortable and spacious. Would suit a family with teens or a group of friends. The energy in the house was lovely, very warm and inviting and had everything we needed. Our dog had a great time too.
