    The location was a complete surprise as we didn't expect such a peaceful location so close to Auckland City. Lovely to sit outside for breakfast. A lovely cottage constructed entirely of wood. The stairs could be a problem if you had young children or older people staying but we're fine for us.

    Lovely setting and nice people. Take a book and enjoy the rural setting with ducks and a lovely friendly cat.

    The cottage is in a lovely spot, most unexpected after driving through Auckland to find it in a lovely rural setting. We stayed with our 3 children (10, 8 and 6) who had a marvelous time jumping on the trampoline and checking out the ducks. We were greeted with freshly baked bread, which was a real treat. We would definitely return.
