  • Clear easy directions

    Clear easy directions. We loved the property, including happy, well looked after friendly sheep, horses nearby, and trees and forest which our 3 and 5 year olds called their 'playground'. The stream and even mud from latest flood made for some great messy times. Afternoon braai on the deck was great, and cosy inside fire at night. Brilliant stay, would love to do again XxS

  • So pleased we found this bach

    So pleased we found this bach.Caroline does all the touches to make it feel homely and welcoming. Was great to have the fire already lit when we arrived. The block of land is beautiful with the stream and the bush to enjoy -which we did in spite of the recent flooding. Enjoyed the friendly sheep eating out of our hands and hearing the Morpork's calling so close at night. Great location for a real get away without mobile or wifi distractions. A stunning drive to Pahoa beach. Would recommend.
