The Maori heritage was very interesting & significant & it was shared with us by the owners. The view was spectacular! A real bonus for me was the fact that there was a piano which I was able to play

The PLACE to stay in Thames!

AWESOME AND AMAZING. Drew and Chrissy were so lovely and hospitality. The place is small (only has 5 rooms) but that’s why it’s so comfortable and not crowded. The rooms are kept clean and comfortable and the outdoor areas are very relaxing. You can tell that a lot of time, effort and love has been put in to maintain the place. The views are stunning! Wish I could have spent more time there so will definitely go back again.
