The property is in a beautiful setting: it has a lovely garden, it is just steps away from the beach on a quiet street, and the cottage itself has gorgeous Maori carvings on its front. The owners are incredibly kind and gracious, as well. They invited us to their nearby home for delicious drinks and food shortly after our arrival. They are deeply committed to sharing Maori cultural traditions with their guests. A truly memorable stay!

Different experience
This was an excellent experience. Different from most places you stay. The staff were most friendly and went out of their way to make this a memorable place to stay. The room/unit had everything you need and breakfast was provided. The homemade jams were wonderful especially the marmalade. It was a no rush, relaxing stay and we would certainly recommend it to people looking for something a little different.

ACute Little Cottage
A wonderful place to stay. We were warmly greeted by our hosts who invited us up to their home for drinks and nibbles and we left an hour later! Many stories changed hands. The next day we put our long line out on the beach and caught a couple of snapper which Miria and Taroi invited us to cook on their BBQ. We of course invited them to share the fish with us and so with salad and potatoes cooked by them ,we once again enjoyed another couple of hours before enjoying a dip in their hot pool. A truly memorable stay in a lovely cottage with the tuis in the trees outside our door. Magic!
