We came to Kamahi Cottage with 2 young children. We were greeted on arrival with fresh baking and a warm welcome. Not that we'd travelled far to get there (only from Hamilton) but it was still a warm welcome and one that made us feel completely at ease. The cottage looks out over rolling farm scape which in the evening... More

This bed and breakfast is phenomenal. It started our trip in the North Island, and made it that much more amazing. Liz is amazing, her cooking is amazing, the view from the cottage when you wake up in the morning is *breathtaking*. Liz gave us some extremely valuable recommendations for the day, which led us to exploring some fantastic areas... More

Kamahi Cottage is not cheap but is worth every pound, yen or dollar you pay. If you are visiting that part of the world take the opportunity to stay, even if just for one night, like myself and my wife. The cottage and its setting are both very pretty. Everything in and around the cottage is of a very high... More

Staying here was the highlight of the North Island for us. Liz is such a warm and gracious host, and waking up on that beautiful farm (we arrived late at night, which Liz was very accommodating about, so we didn't know what our surroundings were until we woke up the next day) was like waking up in a Disney movie....

After a stressful day of driving on the left hand side of the road for the first time, words cannot express how wonderful it was to drive up to the cottage and realize that we were in the midst of a soothing garden with a most gracious host in Liz. The view was spectacular, the variety and color of the... More

We stayed two nights at Kamahi Cottage- we were coming from a big hotel in Sydney so it was great to have our own little house in the country- the cottage is comfortable, pretty,well equipped and cozy- surrounded by beautiful gardens and a lovely lemon tree right outside our door.

My son and I took a long adventure trip to celebrate his graduation and spend some time together before he moved away to start his career.
