“So relaxing!”
Reviewed December 27, 2017 for a stay in December 2017

We loved Siobhan’s place, it is compact and we were slightly worried we might feel too cramped as we were staying for 5 nights over Christmas; but not a bit, the outside bbq and hob plus a covered outside deck overlooking the vines was a comfortable and relaxing place to sit and just enjoy all the beauty around you. We saw hares, a deer, several kingfishers, hawks and parrots and many others.
Siobhan was a very kind and generous host who made sure we had everything we needed for a great Xmas break; including some great recommendations for us to explore and experience this beautiful area.

“Truly is Paradise”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Stayed at Siobhan's beautiful little cottage for 2 nights. Waking up to the view of the green hills, sun rising up and shining upon the vineyard was just magical. The room was very comfortable and beautifully designed which made it absolutely amazing to stay-we wanted to stay a little bit longer!

It was the perfect way to spend a weekend away and out of the city to fully recharge and be at peace. It was actually magical to walk out at night and see the stars from the front porch.

Siobhan was an amazing hostess! She was incredibly sweet, friendly and helpful. She was happy to help us with anything we needed, and made some really good recommendations on where to go and locate some hidden local gems. I can't wait till the next time we go back up and stay at Siobhan's little paradise!

“Paradise Indeed!”
Reviewed July 24, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This place is highly recommended for those who wants to get away from the city noise and distraction. A peaceful retreat with a stunning view of the vineyard, stand-alone unit with all the privacy you need, and the most welcoming host Siobhan who will look after you as if you are family :) This was a great little get-away weekend for my birthday, and I will definitely visit again!

Thank you so much Siobhan for your hospitality. You have a beautiful stretch of paradise here :)

“Retreat in Paradise”
Reviewed May 18, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We have just returned from a delightful stay at Paradise Cottage - the location was absolutely perfect for exploring the Bay of Islands, Marsden Cross & Doubtless Bay.

The decor of the cottage is charming & welcoming. The view of the vines & hills enchanting and wonderful to enjoy from the verandah of the cottage.

This was the perfect place to retreat and relax - Siobhan has to commended for the wonderful accommodation she provides here - we loved all the organic & local products provided especially the free range eggs.

“Beautiful, relaxing and plenty to do nearby”
Reviewed April 10, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We spent a wonderful 4 nights in Paradise and felt fully rejuvenated and relaxed after our stay. The view from the room and when sat on the decks are beautiful, overlooking the vineyard and hills beyond. Super comfortable bed, very clean and nicely decorated.

Whaitangi Treaty Grounds, Rainbow Falls, Marsden Cross and plenty of tramps/hikes nearby, as well as Bay of Islands farmers market on the weekends in Kerikeri. We did a really nice day trip to Cape Rienga and 90 mile beach and did sand dune surfing which was really fun!

The hostess Siobhan is absolutely delightful, really helpful and fun, and has two gorgeous dogs. She made us feel really welcome and at home.

This place is perfect for both a base for sightseeing and a relaxing retreat.

“Fantastic relaxing and secluded stay in fully solar powered paradise”
Reviewed March 26, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Thanks Siobhan for a most enjoyable stay, and for your home cooked meals. A fantastic place to stay for both holiday and business travelers. For accessing north-land it's an ideal spot and most conveniently located.

Your place is also of special interest to anyone wanting to understand how its possible to live 'off grid' and close to nature, BUT with every comfort of home and more! A very special and unique place :-)

“Wonderful stax in Paradise”
Reviewed February 27, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Thank you very much Siobhan for that wunderful stay in your paradise.
Its the perfect place to chillax and forget about everything. We even sometimes forgot to get out and soo the wonderful spots that are around here
If you want to look at the winefield or just see the peaceful kettels you should stay a few days.

It was the perfect week to finish our NZ-trip.

You will not regret it to stay over there!
