“Beautiful, spacious house in a convenient spot”
Reviewed February 26, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed here as a family of 5 adults and it was perfect! Loads of space in the common areas (kitchen, dining, living, a sunroom, deck, back patio, and yard!), four bedrooms, and two toilets (only one shower though). It had every amenity including a kitchen full of crockery, a great movie collection, and laundry facilities. The house was also beautiful!
It is conveniently located right in downtown Waitomo and has a parking spot (plenty more free parking on the street). Walking distance to great food at Curly's, and is right behind the "general store" which is also a restaurant. The exhaust fan of the store sometimes blows yummy smells toward the house, but the restaurant isn't open late so we didn't find the fan to be a problem.
We loved our time here and would stay again!

“What a delightful place to stay”
Reviewed January 19, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Our family of 5 stayed here and it was such a beautiful, and peaceful place that we'd wished we could stay several more days.

It was spacious, but still with tons of character. The beds were great. It could not be more convenient to the central village. Our 5 yr old loved the playroom and the teens and adults enjoyed watching the hobbit after we had visited Hairy Feet Tours and the day before we visited Hobbiton.

Very impressed.

“Large and well set up house”
Reviewed January 19, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

There were only 3 of us when we stayed here in Dec16, however we could have fitted in another family as well. This house is really spacious and well set up.
The location could not be better - right beside the general store and information centre at Waitomo.
The house is cosy and well decorated, and very clean. Beds were very comfortable and the shower was good.
The kitchen is really well set up allowing you to cook full meals if needed.
This was a really good place to stay.

We were fortunate enlighten to stay here over the long weekend while we spent time time exploring the glow worm caves. This house is beautifully furnished, in a great location and was incredibly clean.

We absolutely loved this place and will definitely be back next year!

“Lovely cottage, great location, very comfortable”
Reviewed May 7, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Arrived late at night but this was no trouble, lights were easy to find. There is a lovely renovated bathroom, spacious bedrooms with charming attention to detail & good atmosphere. The country kitchen is clean & spacious with milk, eggs & other essentials all stocked. Hostess is thoughtful & helpful even though we didn't meet her. Wifi worked well but we were not there long to use it much. Will be happy to return.

“Superb location, amenity and interior design panache”
Reviewed April 10, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This four bedroom home has been decorated with great flair and charm. The host has obviously expended much effort to decorate each room beautifully. The fabrics and soft furnishings complement each other perfectly.

There is a new bathroom, lovely kitchen and very comfortable living areas. There were personalised hand written notes to us, fresh flowers on the table. We loved it.

The location is very convenient, in the centre of town but it wasn't noisy. Highly recommended.
