We stayed one night for a family wedding - I liked the look of the place on their website so decided to book it. Sometimes you're not sure if the photo's have been overstated and if it is a true representation but we were pleasantly surprised that everything was just as we expected and as portrayed on the website. Being a clean freak I was happy that the cottage was clean and tidy and smelt fresh and everything provided was just as clean and fresh (towels, flannels, tea towels) - actually there was an abundance of linen and towels (and adequately named I must say). Shower was great for cabin type accommodation. But the best thing of all was the view. Location is spot on - right there on the water. Snow and Bronwyn are wonderful hosts and very friendly and accomodating. It really is a home away from home (you don't need to take anything!) It is a little pricey for Kawhia and for the time of year but well worth it. Will definitely recommend you stay here.
