The cottage is well situated, 30kms from the spectacular Lake Waikaremoana, and an hour's drive from Mahia Peninsula and the Morere Hot Pools. It's so magical to wake up to the sound of the river below, and a secluded feeling. The cottage is very well equipped as it's fully self catering, clean, warm and very comfortable, with lovely furniture and fittings. It has a homely feeling and we had a very warm welcome from John and Sarah. Small touches like fresh eggs from the chooks nextdoor, milk, lemons and butter all made us feel at home. I thoroughly recommend it as a place for a relaxing short break, and a comfortable base for day trips.
It was a bit difficult to find so the location and clear directions on Bookabach would be helpful (including the short cut route).
Thanks John and Sarah!
