5/5 Excellent

Holiday at the homestead
Driving up to the house you don't really appreciate the size of the house until you walk in. We slept four adults and five children comfortably. We all loved the pool and the air conditioning. We'd easily stay again.

5/5 Excellent

Pouawa House
I booked this home for 6 of our film crew who were filming in & around Tolaga Bay. They absolutely loved this home, they said it was huge which allowed space for all the camera equipment. Louise (home owner) was very helpful & accommodating.

5/5 Excellent

Right mix of home comfort and idyllic
Louise and Ian welcomed us into their home, and because of their warm hospitality, my family and I had one of the loveliest Christmases we can remember. The home is large enough to sleep around 13 - we were only 8, so had plenty of space to spread around. Louise was kind enough to have the holiday table set for us, and we were able to celebrate Christmas just as though we were at a fancy party. The house has history woven into its fabric, in its photos and decor. The pool and tennis court were a welcome way to take some time off. Living on a working farm has a charm all its own and we were very lucky to get a small glimpse into it. In short, we had a large, comfortable, clean house that came with every thing a large group needs to have a comfortable holiday away from home. We will come back, if we are ever down in Gisborne again. Thank you Louise and Ian for everything!!
