  • The property was lovely fairly new

    The property was lovely fairly new.The location was to far from Matata Beach.

  • Absolutely gorgeous, just what we wanted

    Absolutely gorgeous, just what we wanted. Fans supplied as it was quite warm. Fresh milk and fruit supplied, coffee and tea too. Good sized shower, furniture and beds nice and comfortable, a real home from home. A shame we only had a couple of nights but for us meeting family from the area the house was just right. We hope to get back later in the year for longer, would be lovely and cosy in the winter with double glazing and a wood burner. Thank you very much for super short break.

  • Fantastic little batch which offers a lot of privacy

    Fantastic little batch which offers a lot of privacy. Full kitchen and nice Deck/BBQ area. Kids were encouraged to explore through the property which has bush and orchard. The owners couldn't do enough for us and we loved our stay.. Definitely stay here if you can! Nice to be just far enough out of town that it was quiet but close enough it wasn't a hassle!
