- "We found the house the perfect spot - close to our son's rowing regatta in Karapiro and close enough for us to spend the day in Raglan with friends. Well set up for our group of two couples and one child - with separate bedrooms for all and ensuite bathroom for the couple without children. Hot tub was a treat! Thank you." — Jan, February 2015Read More
- “I like this property and would be very happy to stay there again. It’s clean, spacious and well equipped. There was plenty of room for two adults and four children, and the rural setting is lovely. Yet it’s only 10 minutes from Hamilton. Highly recommended.” — Bill, January 2016Read More
- “Fantastic property. Great set up for family’s as it’s a home away from home. We stayed here as we were watersking on Lake Karipiro so loads of parking for boats. The spa was wonderful at the end of a long day. Brilliant and so convenient that bedding and towels are included in the price. Not to far to travel to get supplies etc.” — Angela, November 2015Read More
