The most incredible views, wonderful back to nature experience, loved the outdoor bath and shower. It was great to see plentiful wekas and tui’s on the property.

Paul's place is simply incredible! Best cottage we've stayed in, it was just perfect! The view, the attention to details, the cottage itself, we wouldn't change anything. There are loads of great places to visit in the area as well. We would have loved to stay there much longer!

We new we were in for a special stay when we driving up the hill to the hobbit hole and the view just kept getting better and better. A very special and secluded place, would recommend for anyone looking to explore the area and get away from the bustle.
