  • The best Bach we have used in ten years in NZ...

    The best Bach we have used in ten years in NZ.

  • What an amazing cottage in an amazing location

    What an amazing cottage in an amazing location. We loved the attention to detail in how and where things have been built and placed. The whole situation brought a feeling of complete peace for us. Being an eco-cottage was a bonus too and the spring water was lovely. We'll be back - we'd love to live at the Hairy Hobbit but visits will have to suffice!

    Fantastic site, couldn't be bettered and the Hairy Hobbit certainly lived up to it's eco friendly credentials. Ideal place to get away from it all and to enjoy being outdoors.

  • Great location looking out over the hills and the bay

    Great location looking out over the hills and the bay. Comfortable and unusual. Also loved seeing the weka near the bach. Last part of the access road is fairly steep but we did not have any problems with our car which was not 4-wheel drive
