The Queen en-suite room has the most amazing sunset from the patio doors and terrace. We were only staying one night, en-route to Waitomo Caves, and this was a most pleasant stay. The hosts are very charming and provided us with a welcome cuppa and cake in their lounge on arrival. After a short visit to Pirongia Forest, we sat... More

We had some difficulty locating the somersal house at first and had to call our lovely host Jenny for some help in directions... But other than that, everything was lovely!
