I surprised my partner for his birthday with a weekend getaway to this exquisite hidden treasure. Not only was he blown away at the beauty and tranquility of "The Barn", but so was I. Anne & Brian were amazing hosts who made our weekend an unforgettable experience, from our arrival down to the afternoon that we left.
It's such a short drive from Auckland but we felt like we were miles away, with the stunning surrounding national park down to the over flowing swimming pool and tennis courts ( we had a blast knocking some balls around).
It was a FANTASTIC romantic / relaxing / calming break that we both needed and we were both not wanting to leave by the time Sunday came. I can't wait to visit this Gem again and I know we will as it's pretty hard to stay away from a place that leaves such amazing memories in your head.
Can't wait to get back and to enjoy the feeling of pure relaxation again...
