It was quiet and a beautiful spot. The fire was awesome on a cold night. Our kids loved the upstairs bed! The cottage was modern and contemporary. Thanks heaps

The property itself is pretty nice, but it definitely a long way off the beaten track. Having looked for a facility in Hamilton, this is certainly not it! If you're looking for a romantic farm stay getaway this would be lovely, but if you're looking for something in town for an overnight break, this is probably not it. No one was there to meet us as advised, and we nearly got in the car and drove off, luckily someone did come eventually and we got booked in, l;ate be at least we had a nice bed to sleep in

Beautifully set in lovely gardens it's a lovely spot of NZ. Nice and secluded so you really can get away from it all. Check in was easy and the host was very nice. The cabin had everything we needed for a night away from the kids. We had a nice walk around the gardens before sunset.

Thank you for your review, We apologise for the water, the property is run on bore water, the water is high is Iron and other minerals, it is very safe to drink, but we know it doesn't look great in a glass! Next time you stay we would be happy to provide you with some bottled water, we like our guests to be 100% happy with their stay. Kind regards Rachael

This property is a little gem in Waihi, the owner Rachael was very friendly and greeted us at the gate. The Honeymoon cabin was amazing, it is located in a private setting and the views from the cabin were very nice looking at the natural beautiful trees and landscape.

Great environment Old fashioned management

The location is beautiful and only a short drive to Waihi where I spent 2 days working The arrival is confusing with no clear signage to say where reception is. The website says check in available till 9 pm but I had received 3 voice messages at approx 5.30 pm to ask what time I was arriving. The access to my accommodation was through lawn with no designed driveway access. There was no working Tv and a rude sign saying that was because guests had caused the problem While the sheets were perfectly clean The towels and duvet cover smelt I will not be recommending this accommodation
