BreakfastThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

A cosy cottage on the route to the spectacular Cape Reinga. We are in a valley sheltered by huge gum trees, set in park-like grounds with native bush, a river (swimmable in summer) and prolific birdlife. If you have children we can open up a small second bedroom. You have the use of a separate small bathroom adjacent in another building.

A really perfect place with absolutely everything you need. The hosts are so kind and helpful, it was a pleasure to meet them. We highly recommend this place ! We felt like home here, and after six months travelling, it's a really good (and rare) feeling. Thanks again.

Lovely place, great facilities, nice hot shower and the bed was so comfy and warm (loved the heated blanket which was a nice surprise when getting to bed!) . There's no Wi-Fi but a great selection of dvds to keep you entertain :-)

We loved this place. Evon and Andrew were very accomodating. The place was clean and tidy. We had everything we needed. A few extra touches that made it great. The land is awesome and we took advantage of the waterfall and water hole. Magical. A genuine taste of northland and NZ…
