  • We would love to get back to stay at the cottage again

    We would love to get back to stay at the cottage again. Lovely and cosy, big comfy beds, lovely lounge area with piles of magazines and board games. Everything you could need is provided. We have stayed in quite a few self contained cottage type accommodation places like this on our travels around NZ and this is definitely one of the best we have come across.

    Large well furnished and beautiful private country cottage set in a large English Garden. Has everything you need for a de-stress break whilst still close to Tauranga and the Mount.

    We enjoyed our stay at Birdsong so much, it was quite the nicest cottage we'd been to on our NZ travels, very much a home from home. What a beautiful garden, so quiet but with birdsong all around and wonderful dark skies for stargazing. A very comfortable bed, plenty of cooking equipment, lots of books to browse through and a nice selection of classical cds as well. Alison added nice little touches like a big bowl of fruit for us, not to mention a chocolate kiwi!

  • The property is very comfortable and very well equipped

    The property is very comfortable and very well equipped. It's location is beautifully quiet and the setting is stunning. Surrounded by a huge beautiful garden with fruit trees and Childrens play equipment. My only complaint is the kitchen is limited with only two rings to cook on and a combination microwave oven and convection oven, making it a bit of a challenge to prepare proper family meals. Alison was so helpful and made our stay otherwise perfect.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Many thanks for the feedback, i have gone out this morning and bought another two electric cooking rings. So just to clarify we now have four cooking rings, a personal large clean BBQ, a combination microwave/grill/convection oven, a rice cooker/ steamer,a electric wok and a large crock pot (slow cooker). We very much enjoyed you staying with us and hope you have a safe ans stress free journey home, enjoy the wedding.

    Property is picturesque. Very well maintained and secluded. Not too far from town though.
