    Thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise. We had a very comfortable stay, it felt like home, and in a perfect location, only 5 min to town. We will be back one day. Kind regards Philipa

  • Even though it would be more convenient for us to stay in...

    Even though it would be more convenient for us to stay in the township of Whakatane, this was not too far out of the way and I would certainly pick this cottage to stay at again over any hotel. The quietness, the animals and we got quite attached to the dogs in the short time we had. Hospitality you cannot fault and everything you need is there. Looking forward to staying there same time next year but hopefully for a bit longer. Thank you Vicki
