Stayed two nights in cottage in garden. Extremely well equipped with first rate bedroom, lounge area, kitchen and shower room. Private balcony ideal for sitting out at night looking at stars and milky way with almost no light pollution. Can only describe it as brilliant and superb value for money. Lionel as host is friendly and really helpful. Would definitely... More

Having traveled round South Island New Zealand staying at B & Bs in 1999 with great success we decided to go to the North Island this year from Australia where we were staying with our daughter. We booked at Moon Gate Villa and were delighted to have a great welcome from Lionel and see what a beautiful place it was.... More

We stayed here for a family reunion and were impressed as soon as we arrived. Lionel (and the dogs) gave us such a warm welcome, we immediately felt at home. The rooms and cottage have everything you could need, the beds are luxuriously comfortable and the garden and pool delightful. Then there is the delicious breakfast of tropical fruits, croissants,...

My husband and I stayed at Moon Gate Villa for 2 nights at the very beginning of our 3 weeks stay in New Zealand. It was a little difficult to find, as it is off the road, and the sign at the end of the drive isn't very big, but once we found it we didn't want to leave. I... More

Beautiful from the jacaranda tree in the driveway, the tinkling water in the hallway, the little private garden off our bedroom, thankfully a swimming pool on a very hot day. Charming hosts and great breakfast. We would always recommend Moon Gate Villa

Spotless, beautiful lush garden surroundings, calm, dvds to watch. The bed was very comfortable. Lionel is a very friendly host and we loved super cute dog Mojo! Next time we will stay longer, i hope.

We were two couples traveling together that spent two nights in the two in-house bedrooms at Moon Gate. Everything was first class! Our rooms and ensuite bathrooms were large and luxurious. Large windows and french doors opening onto the garden made the rooms light and airy. The furnishings were high quality and very chic as were the linens and all... More

Exquisite gardens, accommodations the best, but most appreciated the delightful company and caring by Lionel and Rob. They provided us each day with itinerary proposals based on our interests. Hit the nail on the head each of our 5 days -- golf, sailing, beaches, Maori history -- you name it. And best of all were Lionel's special Vegan breakfast creations.... More

My partner and I stayed in the cottage for three nights, which is situated in the gardens of the property in a peaceful, secluded spot. The cottage itself was fantastic. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and containing all the mod cons you could wish for, including one of the best sound systems we've ever enjoyed. Just connect via bluetooth and away... More

We stayed at Moon Gate for our honeymoon and it was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, and the accommodation and breakfast each morning were exceptional. We will definitely recommend Moon Gate to our family and friends!
