We have just stayed with Rosemary, John and Daisy (their gorgeous dog) for 4 days. We had the Valley room which was lovely with a well appointed en suite. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them and they are excellent hosts. Rosemary is a fantastic cook and we much appreciated the slices of Christmas cake left in our... More

We stayed two nights and found it just perfect. Soft comfy bed and warm cozy room. Own bathroom, full cooked breakfast - really couldn't find better care and service anywhere else. In fact, its actually better than home!! John & Rosemary are wonderful and welcoming. Friendly and relaxing. I'd love to recommend to all my friends but they might just... More

Spent two nights at this very comfortable accommodation with a well appointed room as part of our tour of North Island. The early 20th Century house is maintained to a very high standard. Rosemary and John were excellent hosts and ready to share their local knowledge that enabled us to make the most of our short stay in the Taranaki... More

We stayed with Rosemary and John whilst in New Zealand and thought the level of accommodation and hospitality the best we experienced. View in the morning was an added bonus to the wonderful garden. Nothing was too much trouble.

Just returned from a wonderful two nights in this beautiful villa. We were welcomed with hot scones and jam and cream yummy. The room was warm spacious and had a stunning view of Mount Taranaki. The gardens are beautiful I don't know how John and Rosemary manage it all. We will definitely be back.

An absolutely stunning old villa inside & out surrounded by beautifully kept colourful gardens & lovely views from every window. Our charming hosts Rosemary & John made us feel most welcome from the time we stepped foot in the front door. Our room was equivalent to that of a five star hotel, it was tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, had lovely... More

An amazing property. We so enjoyed our stay. We were the only guests for the night. My wife and I do some gardening but, we have less than 10 percent of the garden they have and know how much work it is. Their garden was just gorgeous! We also loved our garden tour guide Daisy the Yellow Labrador retriever.

My husband and I felt very much at home in this lovely restored Kauri timber farmhouse from the start. After being shown to our room, we were welcomed with coffee and cake, and enjoyed sitting by the fire after our blustery journey from Wellington and chatting with Rosemary and John. Our comfortable, well-appointed room, with its king-sized bed looked out... More

This was our first time staying at a B&B rather than a Hotel or apartment for many years and it was a real treat. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door, with welcoming hosts John and Rosemary spoiling us rotten throughout our two night stay. Breakfasts were just magnificent, far better than the breakfast buffet... More

From the get go, we really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Were pleasantly surprised with the property and our host. The property has been meticulously restored to better than it's original condition, with added character/convenience/style. Very comfortable, warm, and well facilitated. The host was helpful, friendly, and interesting. John made our stay very memorable and looked after us very... More
