There is a supermarket and restaurant within about 20...

Our hosts Lionel and Rob were wonderful. We stayed in the cottage for one night (wish it had been for two) and there was a...

Moongate villa is probably one of the best B&B in New Zealand. From the moment you arrive you feel more than welcome. This time we stayed in the cottage, which was very nice and cosy. Lionel and Robert have an excellent feeling of being there and giving you privacy. The superb gourmet breakfast is amazing, however you can also get...

Rob and Lionel were amazing hosts in a very tranquil setting. I highly recommend Moongate Villa as place to get away from it all. Rob and Lionel's attention to detail and the warm reception they gave me and my wife was above and beyond what I was expecting. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again!

We spent two fantastic nights in the cottage in the grounds at Moon Gate Villa. The cottage is lovely and was just what we needed after a few days in Auckland. The cottage has a lovely comfortable bed, lounge area, small kitchen and a shower room. There is also a deck area which overlooks the fabulous garden which is a...

Totally perfect, actually even better. We've already booked for next year and we'll definitely be booking the dinner on the Friday as Lionel is the most incredible cook. The cottage was beautiful and the surrounding gardens just magic, just 2k from the city centre. Can't wait to go back.

The house and accommodation is beautifully appointed and the amenities are luxurious.
