Moon Gate Villa is a wonderful place to stay. When we need a break this is where we go. Lionel's breakfasts are the best!

Hidden gem - “Over the Moon”.
What a surprise!! We had a lovely cottage bungalow which had everything you required and overlooked a beautiful garden. Our hosts Rob and Lionel were fantastic - we were greeted with such warmth from Rob, who suggested several sites for us to visit and looked after us so well.

Wonderful private stay
My husband and I had high hopes for our stay at Moongate Villas and they were fulfilled. Upon arrival it was lovely to see a Welcome sign for us and our wee puppy. Lionel greeted us, made us feel welcome and explained everything about Moongate. We had booked the separate summer cottage. Parking right outside. The cottage had a small bathroom - shower, toilet, vanity with luxurious towels, soaps, extras you could need. It had a kitchen/diner with microwave, sink, fridge/freezer, hotplate, coffee machine, crockery, cutlery etc. and open plan to a bedroom/lounge area. A nice couch, with flat screen tv, and a very comfortable bed and pillows. We had free wifi which worked well as well as Netflix, Lightbox, Plex = all great. This area opened onto a lovely deck with small table and chairs and two long comfy 'day beds'. From there we had a huge piece of private garden which our dog loved. We made use of the small solar heated pool during our stay and that was well kept. Continental breakfast is provided by way of a tray the night before consisting of cereals, fruit juice, toast, jams, fresh fruit and yoghurt. This was included in the price or you could pay an extra $15 each for a full cooked breakfast in the main house. Our hosts Lionel and Rob were excellent, friendly, helpful and made sure everything was perfect. We highly recommend this place (and we have stayed at a few hotels!!).

Genuine 5 star
I am usually sceptical when I hear that a B&B is 5 star, but was delighted to be proven wrong. Moon Gate Villa is better accommodation than a number of 5 star hotels that I have stayed in. On top of this, Lionel provides a superb spread for breakfast. The hosts also provide great insight into the best places to visit in the area and the best restaurants to dine at. Highly recommended for anyone visiting the area for a few days.

Moon Gate Villa is number 1
My Sister and I stayed at the Moon Gate Villa and we had the Deluxe Suite which Had 2 rooms that was comfortable and of excellent quality. We were welcomed with much Aroha from Rob and the very famous Mojo who plays a special role in welcoming guests when they arrive. Our Host was Lionel and he has a wealth of knowledge and experience pertaining to caring for their guests. We definitely got the 5 Star treatment which was a 10/10. For me as a guest i really appreciated it how the team had made our stay very special. We definitely thought it was so beautiful to have my name on a blackboard to welcome us at the Moon Gate Villa. Breakfast was incredible a banquet fit for a Queen we were definitely spoilt I want to thank you All so much for the 5 star treatment that we received it was definitely memorable If you are looking for the best don't look any further the Moon Gate Villa is number 1.
