We are 20 minutes from Wellington city by car or 30 minutes by train. Relax by the pool; enjoy views of a tidal inlet and starry skies; go kayaking, swimming, biking or enjoy the high ropes course nearby. Excellent cafe's, movie theatres & local bars/restaurants are within 5 minutes drive. Take a day trip to the Waiarapa or enjoy some lovely local walks in the bush, along the skyline or beach.
This listing is for 1 - 2 people in 1 bedroom which is upstairs and separate from the rest of the house. We have another queen bedroom listed as Sunshine & Seaviews in Paremata, which you can also book if you need 2 separate beds or are a group of 3 or 4 people. Please note that we are not set-up for families with young children as we have found they are not comfortable with our med - large dog and we don't have stair gates or child proof locks on our cupboards and shelves. These rooms are separate to the rest of our house so have their own bathroom (shower & vanity), separate toilet and lounge with flat screen TV for watching DVDs. There is a good collection of DVDs to choose from and you are welcome to share our TV downstairs. We also have wireless internet. We provide tea and coffee making facilities upstairs and you can use our kitchen for heat and eat or simple meal preparation. You are welcome to have drinks and snack food upstairs, but we will ask you to eat your meals in our kitchen or dining room.
We are 20 minutes from Wellington and situated on a quiet street overlooking the inlet with tidal access to the beach below. There is a beautiful walk to the other side and we aren't far from local bars and restaurants/takeaways.
  • Staying with Susan and her super nice family was a great experience. Amazing and cosy place with quiet surroundings and a welcoming family.

  • What a brilliant stay, Susan and her husband, Gavin, are truly great people. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at their lovely home. They make you feel at home and part of the family, they are also very respectful. This is definitely a home away from home. Thanks for a great experience Susan and Gavin.

    Beautiful cottage with sea gently lapping outside. Full kitchen with washing machine, fridge freezer. Bathroom with shower. Amazing views over the Pauatahanui Inlet with abundant bird-life just outside your door. Only 25 minutes from Wellington CBD. Close to Paremata Railway station. Parking is 100m from cottage along the beach. Access is either from the beach (but not at high tide) or down steep steps from house above. Dinghy available for your use.
    Living so close the water is magical. Enjoy the sunrise and watch the bird life from your table.
    We lived in the cottage for 4 months and loved being on the waters edge..Learning to live with the tide , being close to the herons spoon bills and kingfishers was a bonus. The supermarket is 1km away.
  • A wonderful location for a relaxed stay . The cottage and host provides all that is needed for a getaway nights stay. Barb

    Barbara2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A quiet restful place very close to the sea. The access may put some people off but the reality was very simple even at high tide. Just don’t wear your best shoes.

    Kim2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic wee cottage. Great communication from the hosts..... Really lovely location.Will definitely return 😁

    Si2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great spot! I loved everything about the place. Calm, peaceful and right on the seaside with abundant bird life out your front door. Thanks Janine for a great stay (and the delicious brownies and chocolate), I can’t wait to be back. Perfect little slice of heaven to just relax and unwind.

    Mel2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very good location, kind host. However a bit hard to find during high tide.

    Chang(Tony)2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Nifae2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • This little cottage is absolutely beautiful. We stayed only two nights, but it was so peaceful & catered for our needs perfectly. Janine was super lovely & very easy to deal with. A+++

    Beautiful location, great restaurants and coffee shops handy. Heaps of outdoor space
  • The place was great and accommodated my family of 7 really well. Location is beatiful, backing onto the inlet. I couldn't have asked for a nicer few days near Wellington.

    Jonathan2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay if visiting Wellington. Easy 10 minute stroll to train station. Backyard opens onto the bay, with great walkway at bottom of backyard that goes for a very scenic walk around the bay. House perfect for our family with kids and my youngest loved the rocking horse. Second time staying here and can't wait to come back again.

    Adele2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, my kids spent every day walking to the beach and playing in the bay. The house is comfortable and easily accommodated 4 of us. Great and friendly hosts.

    Tertuis2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable home in a great spot

    Eric2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Although we're still here for the next 3 months but so far I have nothing to complain about. Very cozy & comfortable. Clean & it has everything that would make staying away from home very comfortable. My 3 kids love the location - next to the beach - what a way to spend our last 4 months in NZ. Les & Heather are awesome hosts, communication is on point which made checking in flawless. Will come & stay here anytime we're in Porirua.

    Elsie2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Immigrating to NZ was not an easy step to take, the uncertainty of the unknown is a rather scary deal, The best you could hope for is that your accommodation would be faultless as well as affordable. you would have quite a lot to deal with upon arrival, Heather & Les. I could not have asked for a better start in NZ your hospitality was remarkable, I immediately felt right at home. In this past 3 weeks I never had to complain or call for anything to be fixed. The layout is not just cozy and warm, it's also most practical for a comfortable stay, and close enough to shops & public transport Heather and Les went above and beyond to make sure My 1st NZ experience was excellent. Thank you so much!

    Bert2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Heathers place.. it may not be a modern home however it is warm, conveniently located and very homely. We would definitely look to book this property if we are ever in the area again.

    Janelle2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitely recommend this little cottage to others. A huge space with lots of room for all the family. Heaters worked quickly and well to warm the place. Lovely view out to the water, easily accessible walkway out the back door. House well resourced with games, books, dishwasher and TV. Wifi was a bonus for this technology loving family. All the amenities you would need close by (supermarket, takeaways etc) We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely rebook in the future.

  • Beautiful wee room with modern furniture and bathroom, we haven’t meet Leeane but her husband and the friendly cat gave us a warm welcome. Definitely recommend staying there, it was very clean and great to have a separate entrance right next to the car park.

    Glenn2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Leeanne and Adam were great hosts. It was my first Airbnb experience in life and they made it memorable with their great hospitality. They respected the privacy. The place was sparkling clean. View from the dining room and the little Japanese garden outside the room are best features. Plus on top of that, they recommended me about the local attractions, which was worth a visit. I recommend everyone to book their place. Overall 5/5. I will definitely be back. 😊

    Kirtika2019-11-15T00:00:00Z

    Enjoy that “Peaceful Easy Feeling” at the Eagle’s Nest. We welcome you to this fully self-contained private sanctuary.
    If the thought of your own private sanctuary above the Paremata Marina is appealing you will love the Eagle’s Nest. Quiet, private and intimate – you are in control of your own destiny here. Nestled in a quiet cul de sac the Eagle’s Nest is a 10 minute stroll to the Paremata Railway Station, your link to Wellington and the Kapiti Coast. A few short minutes walk further brings you to the Mana shops and their vibrant cafe and restaurant venues. The private room itself is fully self contained with all you need for a restful stay. High speed wireless internet; sky tv; and laptop computer ensure you have access to the outside world if you choose. A modest continental breakfast (cereal, toast and tea and coffee) is included in your tariff. Access to a washing machine and dryer is also included at no additional cost. After a night in the Eagle’s Nest – you’ll appreciate that “Peaceful Easy Feeling”. Enjoy!
  • Tania was a great host and her place was spotless. Perfect for our needs as we caught the train into Wellington, train station less than a 10 minute walk from eagles.

    Linda2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Tania place is a fantastic spot

    Eve2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect little nest with truly amazing views especially from the little deck where I sat out and enjoyed the sunset every evening! It was a very comfortable private apartment with so many thoughtful touches - even supplying me with avocados and a blender for my morning smoothies...! The host was extremely helpful with explaining driveway , parking etc which was much easier than I had thought so don’t be afraid lol! If you are a light sleeper just be aware that all properties in this area are fairly close to the railway line which does run at night. You might want to bring earplugs although I was fine. And the views were definitely worth it!

    Fran2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Tania’s place is great. My second stay there - just proves how much I like it!

    Lisa2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really comfortable and relaxing place. It had fantastic views from the deck which was a great place to sit & watch the 'action' - fishing boats coming & going, families swimming & enjoying the harbour. The place was as stated & as seen in the pictures. Tania had left us several extras which was lovely, along with all we needed for a nice breakfast. Even though the unit was a part of their property we felt it was very private and did not see or hear others unless we messaged them a request.

    Christine2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend “the eagles nest” if you’re looking for a beautiful spot to stay! Stunning views, central location, very clean, excellent value and with everything you could possibly need. I cannot thank Tania enough for her wonderful hospitality and the extra little touches making for a very special and enjoyable stay. I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in town. Thank you!

    Lisa2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and beautiful space! Very clean, comfy bed and fabulous shower!

    Rhonda And Brad2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing hospitality and a very warm welcome, immediately makes you feel welcome and right at home. Probably the best Airbnb I’ve stayed at yet. Stunning place, clean, and Tania pulls out all stops for a relaxing stay. We booked last minute for New Year’s Eve and were lucky enough to enjoy the sunset on the balcony. Highly recommend!

    Christina2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views from the house. It’s in a beautiful suburb about 20-30 mins from the city. Great if you like hill and lake runs/walks. Hosts super friendly and accommodating. The room I was in very quiet and had amazing view especially at sunset.

    Jules2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

  • Jacqui was a great host. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable in her home. Her home was lovely and clean and reasonably central to the city with the train station only 5 mins down the road. I would definitely stay there again if I were to come back to Wellington.

  • We thoroughly recommend this place! Clean, comfortable, spacious and well equipped! There is easy on street parking if you have a car and the bus stops right outside if you use public transport. It is also only a 5 minute walk to Titahi Bay which is a beautiful little beach. There are local shops about 10-15 minutes away and the main shopping centre and Porirua train station is a $10-12 taxi ride away. The hosts are super responsive and welcoming. We stayed here for 3 weeks and were sad to leave!

    We have a private, self contained unit separate from our house, which is located on an 18 acre lifestyle farm. We love travelling and love having travellers as guests and showing them all the great things they can do in our locality. We are centrally located for access to Wellington (40 mins), Hutt Valley (25 mins) and Kapiti Coast(20 mins).
    We are located 200 metres from the shores of Pauatahanui Inlet, where there is a nature walk and wildlife sanctuary, its a great place for bird watching, windsurfing and kayaking. We are cycle friendly and can advise on local and national bike trails as well as local and national walking/hiking/climbing options. Wilf is a keen surfer and can recommend the local surf breaks. We have a small commercial plot of peonies which bloom late October to early December. We also have sheep - some are pets, cows, ducks and chickens. Lyn speaks a little french and german and we are pretty good at guessing/miming.
    At Pauatahanui Village 2 kms away is a Thai restaurant, a boutique cinema and a health spa. Several other eateries (ethnic and pub style) and a supermarket plus the best fish and chip shop around are 5 kms away in Plimmerton. !0 kms away is North City shopping plaza and Mega Centre with 3 supermarkets.
  • Clean, all the amenities I needed. A great quite rural retreat.

    John2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fantastic stay, so close to Wellington but a slice of Heaven for bird watchers and proximity to walk tracks with lots of local knowledge from these super hosts. Highly recommended

  • This place I cannot fault. I have been here a few times now for work, and the rest of the company are planning on using it for our travels as well. It's perfectly located for us, clean and warm (they even flick the heater on before you arrive!!) great coffee, wonder touches with the bread in the fridge and home made jam! yum!! Its perfect.. .. .

    Nathan2019-06-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect! I was there for work and working long hours, to come 'home' at the end of the day was perfect.... Fab location, hosts couldn't be more helpful and the home made jam for breakfast was fantastic!

    Nathan2019-05-24T00:00:00Z
  • Good location, tranquil yet near enough to all amenities. Very helpful host. All facilities of a high standard. Would love to stay there again sometime and maybe a little longer next time.

    Graeme2019-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Lyn and Wilf are incredibly generous and kind people. I highly recommend staying in this beautiful peaceful spot. They totally respect your privacy but make you feel like part of the family at the same time.

    Rachel2019-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • great location for time away from the city but still close enough to amenities. Well worth the spend!

    Rewa2019-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cannot fault our stay at Piccolo farm, everything about it was wonderful. This is the ideal place to stay if you are looking to unwind and relax. Surrounded by a beautiful garden, cute animals and nearby walking tracks, it was just what myself and my wife needed at the beginning of our recent trip. Lyn and her husband were very friendly and were able to offer suggestions for dinner as well as things to see and do in the area. Many breakfast items were available (toast/muesli/cereal)- this was greatly appreciated. Will definitely stay there again if we are down that way!

Trang and her family can not do enough for you during your stay, that you feel comfortable and welcome in the common areas. I also advise you to enjoy his breakfasts and meals that are just excellent!

  • We had a wonderful stay and John and Krishna's. Unfortunately we never got to meet them, but that was purely because we were out all day visiting family. They messaged us with all essential info and left a great breakfast spread each morning. Views are absolutely incredible and location was perfect for us visiting family in Whitby. Thanks for a great stay

    Keena2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

  • We loved staying in John and Krishna's home. The views are superb. No traffic noise in this cul-de-sac. We were grateful for them to entrust us with their house, as they were often away. Having the use of the kitchen was a great bonus, too. Were happy campers throughout our stay.

    Plimmerton accommodation with spectacular views, on the water's edge. Enjoy summer yoga and outdoor activities right on the beachfront from this 2 story historic home. Experience staying in old world charm, and the convenience of the train station across the road. This 1897 built home named Exnells is steeped in Wellington history. Very rare beachfront location. Yoga classes and Kayak hire available. This outside room is on the veranda and can be noisy with the trains going by.
    This is a budget room , the seventh room in the house. The entry to it is located outside on the veranda. Bit of a hike to the outside toilet and shower in the laundry, is priced accordingly.
    I love the small quiet quaintness of Plimmerton .Being flat there are lovely walks around the coastline. Its a great girls weekend away treat.

  • Warm hospitality and the feeling of home from the first night!

    Herman2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with Janet, Ian and their dog Kirk for 4 months and I really enjoyed my stay at the downstairs flat. I felt at home straightaway. It's nice to have your own space, but Ian's and Janet's door is always open. If you need something or if you want some company there is always someone who is happy to help. And Kirk really loves to get petted and is always up for a treat. The bathroom is small but excellent. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a nice dinner. From the living room and the bedroom, you have a beautiful view onto the Porirua Harbour and Whitireia Park. And the bed is really comfortable. There is a Countdown in walking distance. The neighborhood is quiet and very green. There are a few walkways on which you can explore the surroundings or go for a run. A playground is also close by. Porirua City is very close and reachable by bus, car or foot. Their home is also a good starting point for travelling to Wellington. I would always come back!

    Sarah2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Janet is a friendly and fantastic host. The flat is super cosy and comfortable and I would 100% recommend it. One thing to note is that the kitchen was a bit smaller than I had expected but we still had plenty of space for our time there :)

    Harriet2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this flat for my mother who is 78. The flat is modern and clean and mum said the bed is really comfortable. Janet went beyond expectations to make sure mum was happy - which she was. Highly recommend this host.

  • Very friendly and helpful hosts. Fabulous location near Plimmerton beach, cafes etc and a lovely room.

    Tim2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Joan and Alan’s place is just lovely - tucked high on a hill in lovely gardens up some steep little steps, I am not super fit and it was fine for me, but if you have mobility problems it might be more difficult - it feels a though you are staying in a treehouse, which I mean in a really good way! The room was very comfortable and cosy, just as described. It and the bathroom (which was for sole use of guests) were spotlessly clean. This is such an interesting house. Breakfast was just what was needed, very nice and with thoughtful touches. Joan and Alan themselves couldn’t have been more welcoming, we had a lovely chat and then left me to my own devices - perfect blend of hosting and privacy. The cherry on the icing on the cake was that Joan suggested a alternate route, via Plimmerton, for me to take at the start of my drive north. So glad she did - had a lovely walk along the seafront which set me up nicely for the day ahead. Would not hesitate to recommend a stay here, I’ll definitely be back if again in the area.

    The entire lower floor at the rear of the house is provided for your private use and enjoyment. Access is via an external staircase down to the deck, overlooking the established garden and hillside beyond.
    Accommodation consists of a spacious bedroom and separate, large bathroom. Amenities include WiFi, Smart TV with NetFlix, USB and Wireless charging points, hairdryer, and plenty of storage. Self-service Continental breakfast provisions are located with the fridge in the bathroom, whilst tea and coffee making facilities are located in the bedroom. A Welcome Pack is provided to help you make the most of your stay, as well as information on local and regional attractions. The driveway is suitable for small and medium sized cars only. Length is the limiting factor, and the vehicle cannot overhang the length of the driveway and block the pavement, so Utes, Station Wagons, etc are not really suitable. There is free street parking a short distance from the house for longer vehicles. During the warmer months facilities are provided for sitting out on the deck, providing a perfect start to the day with an alfresco breakfast.
    The suburb of Plimmerton lies in the northwest part of the city of Porirua in New Zealand, adjacent to some of the city's more congenial beaches. State Highway 1 and the North Island Main Trunk railway line pass just east of the main shopping and residential area. Plimmerton has its modern origins as a late 19th Century seaside resort. It is named after John Plimmer, an English settler and entrepreneur who, through the Wellington and Manawatu Railway Company, helped to fund and direct construction of the railway line. Today, around 2,100 people reside in the suburb. There are a number of quality cafes and restaurants within strolling distance of the property, as well as a convenience store and a boutique deli.
  • Very nice place, very welcoming, and so clean accomodation.

    Philippe2020-03-14T00:00:00Z

  • This is a truly lovely bnb style suite with a private entrance and deck. I had such a good time relaxing here, taking walks along the sea front, and getting cuddles from the resident cats. A stone’s throw from central wellington on public transport but away from the hustle and bustle if you’re in need of some downtime. Some nice restaurants and cafes just around the corner and super super lovely hosts. Who could ask for more ?!

    Victoria2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice friendly hosts, very comfortable place. As senior citizens, the steps were a bit difficult to negotiate with our bags, but we got manged it ok. It was a nice clean place to stay in and loved the cats - one of them especially friendly - enjoyed its company.

    Maureen2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a great place to stay. Lee and Heidi provided so many small caring touches to the basically excellent amenities and did everything they could to make it a comfortable stay. We loved it. Plus amazing fish and chips down on the beach!

    Lynn2020-03-03T00:00:00Z

    Spacious and well equipped one bedroom flat. Quiet area and extremely child friendly.
    A private self contained 1 bedroom 'granny flat' located below our house. The flat is fully furnished with queen size bed and a single bed in separate bedroom, private bathroom with shower, separate open planned lounge with fully fitted kitchen, heatpump, washing machine. All linen is provided Internet access. Due to having fully fitted kitchen, i do not offer any meals but if you do not wish to make your own i can recommend some fabulous cafes close. Extremely child friendly and can happily supply extra bed/portacot for extra little people. Plenty of kids toys inside and outside which you are free to use if required. Located in Whitby which is a suburb of Porirua. This is approx 25min drive from central Wellington but a great and quiet area to base yourself. Based on location you would need your own vehicle as Whitby shops are not walking distance nor is Porirua city or the train station.
    We are at the end of a cul de sac so therefore very little traffic
  • Excellent facilities, superb place to stay for a long term stay it has everything and more. Donna is there if you need her for anything but respects guests privacy, very polite children and a friendly rabbit, really is ideal for long term stays, wish I could have booked for longer

We can enjoy cooking with organic vegetables of their own garden. Their b&b is located with high accessibility to the downtown. Highly recommend.

    Sunhee2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Janet is an awesome hostess, she is a welcoming and warm hearted person. She is very caring and always helpful. Her place is warm and inviting. I enjoyed my stay and will recommend to anyone looking for a home away from home.

    Approximately 30 minutes drive from Wellington CBD, 20 minutes from the Kapiti Coast, 15 minutes from Hutt City, 10 minutes to the charming seaside Plimmerton beach and only 3 minutes from the historical, quaint Pauatahanui Village ( 20 minutes by cycle, bikes supplied, through the wildlife boardwalk reserve). 5 minutes to train station to Wellington. 25 minutes to Ferry and Westpac Stadium. 40 minutes to Airport.
    Private upstairs, beautifully and tastefully decorated, light and airy Queen en-suite room in a natural New Zealand setting. Quiet and peaceful except for the melody of our native birds. Warm and cozy in the winter and bright and sunny in the summer.
    It is said that "people come to New Zealand not to see what Man has done but to see what Man has not yet undone". Here on the property of Shenandoah which is sited in a scenic, wildlife reserve with some of New Zealands most interesting history from the first Maori inhabitants, the first European settlers and the US Marine Corps to the many lovely walks you will immediately understand the significance of that statement. Only 5 kms away is a delightful, atmospheric country village with coffee shops and an award winning movie cinema serving wine to your seat during performances. The Inlet is ideal for swimming, windsurfing, kyacking. Walking or cycling the bird wildlife reserve where New Zealand nature is at its most stunning is also most highly recommended. 10 minutes away is Plimmerton village a seaside town with the best freshly caught Fish n chips in the southern North Island best eaten hot and steaming on the beach itself. A 20 minute drive will get you on the stunning Kapiti coast with its miles of windswept beaches, charming and delightful villages and Dept of Conservation walkways and parks with Maori and European historical sites all free to visit and to be enjoyed. Wellington is simply a delight with a surfeit of attractions and is one of the two most safest cities in the world. It has the superb Te Papa museum, Parliament and Cable Car to name a few of the attractions
  • Couldn’t have been better. The house is beautiful and equipped with everything we needed (and lots of lovely touches / local design). Simon is very helpful and the location was great. Totally recommend it!

    Nan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful hospitality. Host is a mine of information about the local area and its history. A special property.

    Jill2018-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Simon was a unique pleasure. He greeted us with a warm welcome and a fascinating description of his historic home. After showing us to our spacious room he invited us to join him for wine in front of a cozy fire in the living room. His knowledge of local history is extensive and, even though we had an early flight, we stayed up talking for quite a while. He was very kind to get up early and prepare breakfast. We would have enjoyed spending much more time with Simon and highly recommend him as a host.

    Debbie2018-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very special residence in a unique, historic location. The views are spectacular, the environment relaxing and interesting, and the accommodation superb. Simon is a very attentive host. We thoroughly recommend Shanendoah to anyone who wants a relaxing stopover.

    Steve2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Simon is an amazing host, makes you feel at home as soon as you arrive. The farm is beautiful and you spend all day just walking around . We were even provided with bicycles to bike the local tracks and breakfast. It's a very historic place with a lot of very interesting stories. 10/10 place and we will be returning .

    Pablo2018-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Quite simply, Simon is the quintessential host, and his home is second to none. It is a true haven - unforgettable, and almost impossible to leave. Close to everything, yet far enough away. Home away from home.

    Susana2018-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Very friendly and knowledgeable host.

    Katie2018-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This was probably my best Airbnb experience so far and I have done about 15-20. Expectations were definitely exceeded. Simon is super friendly and helpful, easy to chat to and even put up a german flag on his flag pole to welcome me. The property is very large with some cows, sheep, chickens, peacocks, ducks and birds and is just stunning. The view is great from the top of the hill behind the house. The house is a beautiful big villa with lots of thoughful details. The room is really great as well. It was tip top clean and I had my own bathroom. Breakfast was really yummy as well. Thanks so much Simon for my short great stay with you! I might be back :)

Both Ari and Mahua came to greet myself when I arrived along with their lovely dog Amy, and they were very friendly. I would recommend this place to anyone who likes to get out of the city but still be close to it.

    Emma2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

  • I recommend 100%, we were halfway through our trip to NZ after three weeks in a tent. We wanted comfort and an experience with a Neo-Zealand family. The dream!! Amazing house with breathtaking views, beautiful decor and a king size bed after three weeks of tenting. We shared our two dinners with Shannon and Daniel and their little baby and their dog. Full confidence from Daniel and Shannon. You are at home. I recommend 100% not 1000%. Sorry to tell our life but it's worth the detour, believe us. Ps: the photos on the ad are authentic, incredible place to recharge the batteries and go on a trip.
