This was the nicest stay we had in New Zealand, and that's saying a lot. We stayed in the cottage, away from the main house...It was incredible-beautiful craftsmanship.... amazing attention to detail....extraordinary view....and a coziness that gave us the feeling for a fleeting two-night stay,...More

This is a little spot of heaven, high on a hill with outstanding panoramic views. We stayed in the cottage and wanted to move in. It was so tidy and beautiful high-end construction. Scott and John were most gracious. It was an easy location to...More
