Everything about this cottage, the main house, the gardens and beyond to the pastures speaks of impeccable attention to detail - right down to the home made plum schnapps! We would go back in a heat beat. Any future adventure to NZ will include a side trip to this cozy home away from home. Whether chatting with Liz about NZ, the world or politics or just curling up on the comfy couch with the cozy wool throw a book and a glass of wine this escape takes the prize.

Room Tip: The cottage provides a perfect escape for a couple

We stayed at Kamahi for two nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is cozy and gives homey feeling. The view is amazing and the breakfast is delicious. Their hospitality is exceptional. Would definitely recommend this place for those visiting Otorohanga/Waitomo region.

We had a lovely night in the comfort of the secluded Kamahi Cottage. Liz has done a great job of thinking of all the finer details. The location is beautiful overlooking the rolling hills, and the freshly delivered breakfast was delicious, not to mention the chocolate treats awaiting us on arrival! We also really appreciated the complimentary bubbles to celebrate our honeymoon, very kind. ‎It's great to know the efforts the family have gone to to make the cottage as green/eco-friendly as possible too. Highly recommended for a comfortable and romantic getaway.

We had a wonderful two night stay at Kamahi Cottage a few weeks ago. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!
The bedding was clean and comfortable, the cottage is beautifully and comfortably appointed. We had baked treats and homemade lemonade waiting for us on arrival. The breakfasts were delicious and HUGE. I thought the offering of the free mini-bar was very generous and a nice option to have. Elisabeth was a very thoughtful and courteous host and was able to cater to my dietary requirements (gluten free) beautifully. We honestly wanted for nothing. Overall it was a really relaxing weekend getaway, and the only thing I would change for next time would be to extend my stay! If the option presents itself I will definitely be coming back.
