“Relaxed and great Kiwi style hospitality ”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Spent a nice relaxing night here and even though the weather wasn't great the hospitality more then made up for it. Awesome place to spend a night and the outdoor bath and huge breakfast is worth coming for alone, cheers for a great break away. These guys need your support. Ryan and Nicola

“Luxurious carriage by the sea ”
Reviewed 6 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

This is a magical place to stay. a unique not to be missed experience to spend the night in a beautifully refurbished railway carriage right on the beach. The attention to little details by the hosts enhances the experience- chocolates, wine in the fridge, fresh flowers, lovely toiletries, an outdoor bathtub!
Breakfast was delicious.

“Wow A one off great place to stay”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just spent two nights in the carriage and a fantastic experience
Location great, not to far from town and only a couple of min stroll to the beach.
the carriage was great - retro but with all the mod cons you need.
Breakfast - well what can i say absolutaly every thing you could want and all home made.
Hosts - real good buggers 10 out of 10
If you are traveling from overseas and looking for a real Kiwi experience then this is a must do.
Thank guys for giving us a great weekend
