Beautiful views and gardens at this peaceful cottage. Very neat and clean property with adequate, well maintained facilities. Simple breakfast with plenty of fresh fruit.

Enjoyable stay and reasonable value for money.

“Beautiful location;”
Reviewed 5 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is a lovely self-contained apartment in beautiful gardens with great views across the hills. The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at home. There is an excellent breakfast provided. You have use of the owner's outside spa and there are laundry facilities if required. It is a short drive into Matamata (20 mins). This is a lovely peaceful place and I would thoroughly recommend it.

“A comfortable stay in a magificent garden setting.”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Hosts very welcoming, Unit was clean, comfortable and spacious. Sighted conveniently close to Mata Mata, the stay was enjoyable. Room was well equipped,, kitchenette potentially small/under-equipped, but we knew what we were getting at time of booking. Only slightly annoying was the operation of the adjoining garage door early morning.

Yes! This place is so wonderful. Out of the concrete jungle and into the N.Z. countryside. What a great thing to experience. It is quiet, picturesque full of cornfields and a lovely mountain view to wake up to in the morning. Less than 10 mins. from Matamata ( Hobbiton ) it worked perfect for our homebase for the week to explore the entire area. About 40 mins from Tauranga or Rotorua with tonnes to see and do. I can't say enough about our hosts Brenda and Cyril. They are the kindest people, and made us feel like we were at home. They have excellent suggestions on what to see in the area for no cost, so even on our quieter days we could go on a quick hike. We were fortunate enough that Cyril had a moment to introduce us to a great dairy farmer named David. We got to see the full workings of how his farm works. Even brought the cows in! Absolutely the highlight of our trip.

Such a gorgeous location, a comfortable room and very friendly owners. You are independent from the main house, get to wake up to gorgeous views and it is so quiet!... Would totally go there again!
