Lovely setting, real close to KatiKati which has an amazing wine shop and informative owner. House and set up makes you feel like you are in a french provence. Nice and relaxing. Ideal for a group of adults and/or family. Easy access from Auckland i.e. 2 hr drive. We enjoyed out stay and would recommend it!
The house is furnished luxuriously and beautifully looking out onto lovely gardens/river. The addition of the open fire and outdoor spa were a real treat for a winter stay! Proximity to Katikati was less than a 10min drive which was very handy.
Lovely house, especially good in the wet weather - warm, lots of space and lots of entertainment! Living on tank water can be interesting if house is close to/at guest capacity, but not a big issue. We had a great long weekend there, would definitely recommend.
