Peaceful, spotless, beautifully appointed, and friendly
Our visit could not have been nicer. The spotless cottage is beautifully designed for air flow and sound sleep, the porch perfect for sitting. We were gifted eggs and veggies by the loveliest proprietors. Eight acres of land surrounds you for walking.
Very clean and comfy.
Owners were very friendly and helpful and supplied us with fresh eggs from the free range chooks.
Beautiful, peaceful property. Great place to unwind. Friendly, hospitable hosts.
Thanks Carol, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay your welcome back anytime.
A lovely fresh, clean Bach with beautiful garden and birdsong
This was a perfect place to stay after a long flight from England. Only 40 mins from the airport. Lovely and clean with all that was needed for our 3 night stay. We could completely relax and recover. Great hosts and we would not hesitate to stay again.
Thank you Janet we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us it was a pleasure to meet you and your family and we hope to see you again in the future, happy travels.
Comfortable, clean, and VERY quiet
Donna and Michael were the perfect hosts: available for questions and providing quick and concise answers, but left us on our own otherwise.
The property was very well appointed. There was nothing that we wanted that wasn’t there. It was very clean and comfortable.
While the rural setting was fantastic (how many places in the world can you have unscreened windows and doors wide open all night while feeling totally secure AND be untroubled by insects!?!?), it was a two minute drive to the Swanson Train Station and a 50 minute ride to the Auckland Harbour. The peaceful setting more than compensated for the “lost” time. In addition there was no driving stress nor parking problems.
The property was *outstanding* value. On a scale of 1 to 5, this would earn a 7!
We would make this our first choice when returning to the Auckland area.
And, yes, the peacock did display every morning and evening!
Kenneth and Betsy were the perfect guest's and it was a pleasure to have them stay.
We are glad they enjoyed themselves and were happy with everything and thank them for the wonderful review.
They left the cottage lovely and clean and we would highly recommend them and hope to see them again.
Take care of yourselves and have a wonderful Christmas.
lovely place way out of suburbia
Perfect little cottage, good to arrive in daylight! Great shower, comfy bed, lots of space everything required for short or long stay, even a washing machine (which we didn't need)
We enjoyed hand feeding the beautiful peacock!
Donna and Micahel were most welcoming

It was a pleasure to meet you and we would welcome you back anytime.
