  • The property is fantastic

    The property is fantastic. We would definitely consider coming back with a bigger group again and renting out the whole homestead. Very comfortable and wonderful grounds, views and surrounds. 5 min drive from the swimming beach. About the same to Porongahau village. The town has only the pub which offers deep fried anything so if that's not your cup of tea then make sure you bring enough food to prepare for lunch/dinners. Otherwise Waipuk town is about 30-40mins drive away. Highly recommend stay

    My only recommendation is that it is a place you want to stay a minimum of two nights at not just one to really appreciate and enjoy the location.
