My husband, his father and I all stayed at The Stonehouse in 'Cutesy', a two-storey cottage. Upstairs is a sleeping room which would hold 6 comfortably. My father had a fold-out couch downstairs, in the living area, as that was adjacent to the bathroom. Very comfortable, rather different than the usual. Our hosts were very helpful with information on local...

It is a small unit on the ground floor including a well equiped kitchenette, bathroom and sofa-bed plus an independent room upstairs with six bunk beds (accessible from an outside staircase). Our kids were delighted to be on their own under the roof. There is an adjacent terrasse which...

My girlfriend and I booked only a few days ahead and were able to stay 2 days in the Cutesy rooms, which compose a room with kitchen facilities and sofa-bed and bathroom downstairs and six single beds upstairs we did not use. Our Swiss hosts made us feel very comfortable and we were allowed to bring our dog into the...

We stayed here at the last minute after we were deciding to stop for the night and the place we rang couldn't take us - we were so lucky that they gave us the details for this because we loved it - so welcoming, amazing surroundings and they let us use their kayaks on their lagoon, we loved every moment...

We needed some time out and The Stonehouse was perfect. The cabin is very well appointed, extremely clean, and private location. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Grounds tidy and well maintained. We enjoyed the nearby coastal walk from Waipu Cove. We certainly recommend this accommodation.

I have been a regular at the Stonehouse Cottage in Waipu for over a year, the grounds are immaculate with amazing gardens featuring just about every fruit, veg and herb you can think of. The cottage itself is well equipped and there are kayaks available for the lake out the back, totally peaceful and characterful place with very comfortable bed...

We were in the middle of a busy trip home to see family and decided we would take one whole day and night for ourselves. I googled a lot of places around but this place looked like the nicest for the best price ($100-$160 per night). We were definately not dissapointed! We stayed in the cottage right beside reception and...
