We enjoyed our stay but have the following comments;

.

The gas hob was very difficult to light,

The hard wiring to the oven was exposed and very dangerous,

Water pressure to shower was dismal,

Light bulbs missing to the bedrooms,

We also locked the key for the annexe in the annexe, by mistake. We had to organise to collect a spare key from Auckland.This could have easily been resolved by the owner having a spare set of keys for all rooms, either on site or with the lovely neighbour.

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.
