We had a wonderful two night stay at Kamahi Cottage a few weeks ago. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! The bedding was clean and comfortable, the cottage is beautifully and comfortably appointed. We had baked treats and homemade lemonade waiting for us on arrival. The breakfasts were delicious and HUGE. I thought the offering of the... More

My family of four had the most amazing stay here. The cottage and property are beyond beautiful. I spend so much time enjoying the gardens and sitting in the hammocks with a glass of wine. Liz is the ultimate hostess, we were warmly welcomed and cared for. My only regret is we stayed just for one night. I hope to... More

We spent 2 nights at Kamahi Cottage during our Honeymoon in New Zealand. We chose to stay in the Otorhanga area since it is near the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves. There are not many nice hotel options in the area, so I was thrilled when I came across this 5 star rated B&B. I emailed to get more information on... More

An absolute delight, would love to have stayed there for longer. Beautiful cottage in idyllic peaceful surroundings, great hostess, Elisabeth's breakfast was excellent. Although this cottage was a short distance from Waitomo caves it was well worth it, the need to relax after the caving experience was provided by the comfort of the cottage.

We chose this B&B to get a sense of the countryside. The property was beautiful. The proprietors, Liz and Evan, were gracious and full of information about the area. The grounds were magnificent, casual and breathtaking. We stayed in the 'cottage, which was a guest house next to the main house; the sleeping area is upstairs. The next morning we... More

My husband and I just returned from several weeks vacationing in New Zealand and one of the most memorable and enjoyable highlights was our "farm stay" with Liz and Evan. We were reluctant to experiment with idea of a farm stay, but our travel coordinator strongly encouraged us to put Kamahi Cottage on the list. Located in the small community... More

If you are planning to spend a night near the Waitomo Caves and can fit it into your budget, you should definitely stay here. We loved it! We arrived about 30 minutes later than expected, and Liz was right there to greet us and make us feel at home. She was very accommodating regarding the timing of our meals, and... More

Kamahi Cottage lives up to its 5 star farm stay rating, if I had the choice to choose 6 stars i would. It was definitely my favourite place to stay in our 2 weeks travelling through New Zealand. The food was fantastic and Liz catered to my dietary needs with tasty and delicious choices. The gardens are just gorgeous, we... More
