Beautiful location! Lovely cottage with everything we need. Thank you for being so accommodating. Michelle & Nic, Auckland January, 2014

We have stayed twice this year in this charming and quaint cottage. The view is spectacular, it is close to Oneroa’s cafes and restaurants, several beautiful beaches and has easy access to many vineyards. A big thank you to our very welcoming and hospitable hosts for sharing their slice of paradise with us. We highly recommend it. The Wellinghams January and November 2013

Wonderful stay, awesome place and enjoyed meeting you. Thanks heaps.  Sharon Te Awamutu July 2012

Magnifiicient views and home, its like paradise. (Photos dont do it justice) Paul and Monica Melbourne May 2012

What a spectacular place to get engaged!! Such a memorable stay and we were lucky to have it all to ourselves. Thankyou Suzie and Ryan Canada April 2012

Wow… Speechless from the moment we arrived. The warm welcome is service only royalty expects. Situated on one of the highest peaks of the island, the 180 degree breath taking views from the  french influenced self contained cottage facing the ocean is one to be admired. As well as the comfortable bed makes getting up in the morning really difficult, especially when the French doors are open to such magnificent views. You won’t want to leave. A real MUST!! Thankyou!
