lovely view. well equipped. easy access to great hikes
It's one of the best we've ever stayed. The cottage is super clean, with lovely and thoughtful decorations. The supplies are generous. The view outside the window in the morning makes our hearts sing. We had a beautiful and interesting hike not far from the lodging the next morning. We wished that we stayed an extra night.
A spot of paradise

Cosy with a view
We all enjoyed our night at the cottage, specially the little touches like the little Easter eggs on the bench upon arrival. Very friendly host will definitely come again.
We are glad you enjoyed your time in our 'Slice of Paradise'.
Friendly, comfortable clean
Nigel and Pam have a beautiful little Bach at the back of their property. It is comfortable, cozy and clean. It has everything you need for a great stay and it's disabled friendly. We sat outside in the evening and listened to the birds and we woke in the morning to the sound of the birds. Nigel told us all about the gold mining in the gorge and pointed out several walks. They were friendly and very welcoming and the cereal, milk etc was very welcome. We were moving onto hot water beach and as a result of the info in the book they compiled, we changed the route we were going to take...and it was a change for the better.
Wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you Pam and Nigel
We are glad you enjoyed your time with us.
Very well cared for and appointed.
Quiet, private, lovely
Cosy, relaxing, fun filled activities
Great getaway for the weekend with the babes away from busy Auckland. Nice clean little cottage where you can sit on the deck and listen to the birds sing, watch the sunset on the mountain view. Peaceful and cosy, this cottage made us feel super relaxed. Spent the Saturday on our trail walk. Was such an amazing experience!! And only a short distance from the cottage. Went for a picnic and swim at Owharoa falls. Had such a wonderful time. Nigel and Pam such lovely hosts. Nigel was very informative on activities around the area. Cottage was filled with all necessities needed. Shower is to die for! Thank you Nigel and Pam for sharing your special little piece of heaven with us!! We will be back.
