  • What a fantastic property

    What a fantastic property. Built in a paddock the property itself is so very luxurious. Beautifully detailed and everything has been thought of. Wonderful views and all thoughtfully framed by well placed windows and doors. Such a nice relaxing vibe to the place too. Add the hot tub on the deck , the peace and quiet of the location and its the perfect combination. As for the friendly Alpacas! what a great way to start the day! such friendly animals. The kids loved it! book up now i say!

  • We loved our stay

    We loved our stay. The cottage is a beautiful home immaculate, tastefully furnished, and all the extra alpaca fibre throws and duvets add to the experience. This is a lovely home in a peaceful setting

  • We were blown away at how lovely everything was

    We were blown away at how lovely everything was. Peaceful and relaxing retreat, with real wow factor and many thoughtful touches that made our stay so comfortable. We will be recommending you to all our friends and family, although we are almost loathe to do so because it might make it harder for us to come back whenever we want, as you will no doubt get much busier once the secret spreads, which it no doubt will do

    The photos are a total understatement of the property, honestly the best place in New Plymouth. Would go back for a longer period of time and just enjoy what the bach has to offer. There was absolutely nothing we didn't like, the kids and myself loved the house to bits. Also because it was in the middle of farmland, we had absolute privacy but wasn't too far from town.
