We were only here for one night and that was a real sadness for us. We planned to use the accommodation as a good place to visit Waitomo Caves from as it is only about 20 minutes or so away. We arrived late afternoon and were greeted by the owner Liz. She showed us the accommodation and introduced us to... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Kamahi Cottage in order to be conveniently located for our visit to the Waitoma glowworm caves. I had booked the cottage on recommendation of my travel agent, and it turned out to be the nicest B and B we have ever experienced! It should be noted here that our entire 2-month trip... More

What a wonderful surprise! We traveled throughout New Zealand for 30 days and the Kamahi Cottage was by far one of our favorite places to stay. The cottage is beautiful. There were fresh flowers, lemonade, fruit and homemade pastry in the cottage when we arrived. There is a nice selection of wines in the cottage if you wish to purchase... More

Awesome adorable cottage. Loved the fact that the bedroom is upstairs. Incredibly comfortable Bed. Much attention to detail. The breakfast was tasty, healthy and exceeded our expectations. The owner, Liz, made every effort to meet our every need. We arrived there late at night and it was not a problem. Beautiful view. Would definitely recommend and come back again.

This fantastic cottage is a little way out of Waitomo but it's worth going to stay even if you don't go the do the caves and glow worms. The accommodation is superb, the view fantastic but most of all it is the peace and quiet in this great location that got to us. There are even hammocks on the veranda... More

All the things we like most about New Zealand wrapped into one location - extraordinary hospitality, stunning views, genuine friendliness, effortless relaxation, and a sophisticated attention to detail. Even though we visited in mid-August, the gardens and surrounding farmland were so perfect, we actually canceled some of our site-seeing just to spend more time on the property. Easily the best...

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.
