  • Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here

    Thoroughly enjoyed our short stay here. A very clean and well presented wee cottage, with heaps of atmosphere. Te Aroha was a delight to stay in, very friendly locals, great walks and weather. Returned relaxed and wanting to go back. Thanks

  • The cottage was clean and tidy with 3 large bedrooms

    The cottage was clean and tidy with 3 large bedrooms. The lounge/dining/kitchennette is smaller than expected but the additions touches such as butter, milk, jam etc was nice. The outdoor area and yard isn’t pretty but is serviceable.

  • The house had everything we needed for a weekend away

    The house had everything we needed for a weekend away. Even when I had a dilemma, as my shoe broke walking out the door to the wedding, we found scissors and gaffer tape to fix it. We enjoyed the heated floors, modern shower and a wine on the very sunny front deck.
