  • Tai Tane is Beautiful

    Tai Tane is Beautiful. It has all day sun & is surrounded by trees, so it is warm and private with birdsong enriching the retreat experience. On cooler days the fire warms the whole house, so it is very cosy. The kitchen is fully equipped with Renates gorgeous pottery - her shop is next door if you wish to take some home. With a fabulous walk over the road by the estuary, the house offers a sanctuary & a close nature escape. Loved it!

    A quiet, very plesent place with a nice view of the sounds. Plenty of bush with native birds to give us a lovely experience.

    The house was lovely - nothing flash but extremely spacious, clean, comfortable and relaxing, making us all feel very at home. The setting is lovely with native and fruit trees, plenty of birdlife and wonderful views. There is no swimming beach nearby though so a 10 minute drive to a decent beach (which wasn't a problem). A lovely peaceful spot to get away for a relaxing break.
