  • It was too good to stay there

    It was too good to stay there..the location is awesome...and the cottage is beautiful and the view from it also eye catching....i should have given 10 on 10 points but deducted two points ans one star as the cottage is about 200m up from the accessing to the cottage regularly was a bit tough for my parents.....but overall it was a very good experience living there..

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for the good review. It's a minor disappointment when a "Five Star" Review is scaled back for a factor we can't change (Steep Driveway) :)- Please note that the Cottage is at the top of a very steep 200 metre driveway and that a reasonable level of fitness is required for access. Refer many photos showing the steep driveway and the steps up to the Cottage. We have five alternative properties on Mount Hobson with easier access. :)- Enjoy NZ.

  • I had a great stay

    I had a great stay. It was peacful, yet in the big city. Away from everything, but 5 minutes walk to public transport and 15 minutes walk to down town Newmarket. Great hosts, great space, lots of relaxing done!

    John & Mali were great to deal with and the accommodation/location was most satisfactory for the event we were attending only a few hundred metres down the road.
