Thank you Roger & Adele for sharing your little piece of paradise!
We really enjoyed our "camping/glamping" time here, from cooking breakfast with the sounds of Tui and local birds to falling asleep to the sounds of frogs and possums!!
After day trips exploring the Abel Tasman or Takaka, the hot bath and fire under the stars were welcome features. We both felt very welcomed, relaxed and 'at home' staying here.
Your attention to detail (such as fresh eggs on arrival and heart-shaped chocolates!) made this place feel very loved.
It was a pleasure meeting you and your gorgeous sheepies!!
Wishing all who stay at Kissing Gate a relaxing, loving and happy, memorable time here, just as we've had.
Will be back for our next R&R!!

We have had a fantastic 3 night stay & one that has been very memorable - perfect for our honeymoon. We love the set-up across the Kissing Gate (including some of the hidden surprises) & have really enjoyed our evenings lounging by the fire or soaking in the bath. We will definitely be recommending you to our friends as this is one of the most quirky & fun places we will ever stay! This is topped off by the 'Sheepy Sheepy' & the chickens where we have made daily visits to feed.
Thanks for your hospitality.

Wow - what an amazing experience we have had at your property. It will definitely be a memory we will never forget.
The Tasman area has provided us with some fun-filled adventure. Rabbit Island on our bikes - having fish & chips on the beach to ourselves! Yesterday we had a private winery tour- we were very spoilt for choice!
Thank you for having us - it has been a lovely break away and I will certainly be recommending 'The Gates' to my clients and friends/family."

We had the most amazing four night stay at Kissing Gate. It is a total gem, and such a quirky find. The bedroom caravan was super comfortable, the cooking facilities were great and the shower/toilet facilities were clean and the shower pressure was incredible!
Roger was a lovely host, very helpful, gave us plenty of advice for things to do locally and set us up with the onsite bikes so we could go for a wee adventure.
I would recommend in a heartbeat if you want a relaxing, quirky, romantic and beautiful setting for your getaway.
Kissing Gate proved a fantastic choice to spent our 1 night away celebrating our wedding anniversary. Two beautifully restored caravans fitted with great eye for (vintage) detail and all luxuries one could possibly want in a very private, secluded bit of farmland among rolling hills and trees.
Great quality in everything; from the bed to the kitchen and equipment, the fresh eggs waiting for us, warm water in the outside bath on a deck over the pond (frog chorus provided at night)... perfect in every possible way.
Contact with Roger was excellent; starting with a very informative and welcoming email.
Highly recommended for everyone enjoying a private, secluded space in a beautiful natural environment.
