This is a stunning spot. It is a traditional kiwi batch and the bush surrounding is amazing. Perfect place for a weekend get away. Lovely bush walks just up the road.
My wife reports that she and her girlfriends absolutely loved the property and thoroughly recommend it. Beautiful spot, lovely place, no problems at all.
Lovely classic family bach in a beautiful spot -- we had a great relaxing break reading books on the deck and playing games at the table.
Amazing bach, well-equipped, our group enjoyed our stay very much - would definitely recommend!
Such a lovely little cottage! The sleeping spaces were small but comfortable. The living areas are huge and we had plenty of room to spread out.
