Plus: Decent size room, nice deck, hot tub, good bathroom fixtures, clean. Comfortable bed. Negatives: Ironically, in the middle of nowhere but RIGHT next to a dog kennel and barking may be an issue. Although you may get the idea from this site and owners web site that Julie is quite the cook, I found this not to be the case. Of the 3 breakfast choices only the eggs Benedict was palatable at all. But you will pay for breakfast whether you like it or not. The location is about a 1/2 hr. drive from Waitoma in the middle of sheep and cattle country. Its truly in the middle of nowhere. Unnecessarily far from the caves in my opinion. Summary: Waitomo is tiny town with only a few businesses. Noise etc. was not the issue we thought it would be. Would have preferred staying close in "town" where the caves, restaurants etc. are. In my opinion not worth the extra drive. You will probably spend only a day in Waitomo anyway.
