The room was clean, the bed was comfy. The towels were good. There were facilities to make some sort of meal. The room smelt mouldy and unaired, there was mould on the curtains. The ensuite facilities were flimsy. The deck needed a good power wash. We daren't open the windows because of the bitey flies. A most disappointing stay that...

When we arrived there was no instruction how to get the key. After informing at a restaurant and calling the accommodation we could get our key with a canoe company with the same name. The man which give us the key was very friendly but did drink a little too much in our opinion. After we go the key we...

We sadly only stayed for one night in the Treehouse. We had the upstairs room at the back. (Nikau) The room was clean, spacious, with a full kitchen, which was nice. We had a lovely balcony, where we sat in the " middle of the jungle". The Truman Track is reachable from the path of the Treehouse and leads to...

For our next-to-last night in New Zealand, this "treehouse" room was a great way to top it off. The space was surrounded by tree ferns and bush, and the pounding surf was close enough to lull us to sleep. The room seemed brand new, and the spacious balcony was too good to pass up for a liesurely breakfast and second...

Nice accomodations. Plenty of space for our two couples. Full kitchen facility. Great sunset view. Margaret This was a vacation house. It's about 1 km from the office where you check in. The bed was good and we slept well. Jim

We stayed for one night in the Rata treehouse towards the end of our South Island tour. Even though it doesn't come with the modern distractions like TV, internet, etc the kids thoroughly enjoyed the place. We occupied ourselves with the board games provided and spent quality time together. Be careful of the sandflies though. There are no screens as...

We were looking forward to our stay at Havenz, but we found the house to be a bit run down and the beds uncomfortable. The views were wonderful, but the house got very hot and we couldn;t open the windows because there were no fly screens and the sand flies would come in and feast on us. It was a...

We booked this accommodation to try something a bit different and we are so pleased we did. It is situated near the Truman Track just north of the village of Punakaiki on the west coast. We were advised to stock up prior to arriving at Punakaiki so did this at Greymouth on our journey north. As the name suggests, The...

We spent a single night here and, as every one has said, picked up the keys at the canoe rental place. For some reason we were given an upgrade to the upstairs room which was good. It was a rainy and gloomy day/night, so we had to stay inside. The room was basic but large and had a nice kitchen...
