Spending the night in the cottage was amazing! The grounds of the farm are the perfect setting for the beautiful cottage. The house was clean, modern and the perfect size, just as described on the website. Liz welcomed us the moment we arrived and cooked a fabulously delicious dinner and breakfast. We were especially grateful for Liz's hospitality as she... More

We loved everything about this place, especially all the small details (some homemade cake waiting for us, homemade lemonade, lots of fresh flowers, umbrella etc.)... Breakfast was one of the best part of our stay at Kamahi cottage. Elisabeth makes the best breakfast in New Zealand! The cottage itself is very large, is very quiet. There is only you, no... More

You can cook your own food, go out or get Liz to create you a tasty NZ style dinner. The breakfast is very jummy and Served in the main house just next... More

From the moment of our arrival we knew that we had found a very special place. Elizabeth greeted us as she appeared from the beautiful gardens of her home that was adjacent to our little slice of heaven for the next two nights. The panoramic views provided a dramatic backdrop and could be admired from the porch of the cottage... More

Nearby Waitomo Caves is the reason we were in the area. We chose Kamahi for the opportunity to stay on a farm with fresh air and space for the kids to run around after a busy week marinating in the adrenaline of Queenstown. However, the relaxation came more from the efforts of our hosts Liz and Evan, who were attentive... More

The comfortable cottage includes a sitting room (with a sofa bed), small kitchen with dining area and bathroom on the first floor; the bedroom is upstairs. The view out of the... More

We had a great time. Lovely location, amazing and lovely hosts and a wonderful location. I wish I could live there forever! Great food too, we've really been spoiled. You wake up with the sound of birds singing and turkeys gobbling. The bed is excellelent and the cottage is very cosy.

What an incredible spot this is! It's a private cottage on a beautiful ranch, with everything you could ask for! Comfortable bed in the upstairs loft, small kitchen, living room, bathroom and all kinds of extras, like socks for cold feet, books about NZ, homemade fruit cordials, etc. After our 5 hour drive (on the wrong side of the road)...

We arrived here after a sleepless overnight flight from Perth, Australia. Liz was there to greet us and happy for us to check in early. What a wonderful, peaceful place to rest up. The cottage had everything we could possibly want, including home made cake! We collapsed in an exhausted heap in the sun chairs in the garden and soon... More
