Westwinds is set in a lovely rural area with fantastic views from the property. You will be given detailed instructions as to how to find the place and they work beautifully. Ian and Linda are welcoming and friendly and are justifiably proud of the lovely home they have created. Make sure you have a good book to curl up with,... More

We stayed in the pretty "Tui room", which has a separate entrance and small bathroom. The hosts were very nice - they welcomed us with tea/coffee in the afternoon and had breakfast with us together the next morning. They gave us lots of information about where to go and what to see in the area.

Linda and Ian are the best hosts we have met- warm, extremely helpful and friendly. They made a point to mingle with the guests, were chatty and helpful with local insight and attractions. They go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable and would do what they can to make it interesting - cracking home-grown macadamias, sharing... More

we arrived shortly after the birth of five puppies and 13 piglets so there is plenty of animal activity and we each enjoyed a puppy moment after breakfast. this is a very peaceful location with stunning views across to the Coromandel hills in the distance - a true retreat away from it all, but direction to it are foolproof. evening...

We spent 2 nights at Westwind and enjoyed the quiet location and lovely views from the verandah. Each evening our hosts took us on a walk through the bushland which was a great experience. We were lucky enough to see three moreporks. Ian said this was the first time they had seen these birds on their property in all the... More

Wonderfully hospitable hosts Linda and Ian will make you feel as though you are staying with long lost friends. Our room was beautifully set out with really lovely little details, like chocolate biscuits and an array of fragrant homemade soaps. Westwind has a lovely, cosy, homely feel. You know that in the depths of winter these guys would know how... More

We stayed 3 nights with Linda and Ian (and Archie the dog). We were made so welcome, it was like staying with good friends. My wife had a problem with a broken denture and Linda went to a lot of trouble to find someone who would see her that day. The food was excellent - Ian's pancakes are justly famous... More

The homestay is true to its reviews. We use tripadvisor for everything and feel compelled to leave a review. It is quite a ways from Thames or anywhere but this adds to the experience. The rooms are 5 star and that is really all I can say. The views are great and it is so quiet! Breakfast was great and... More
