This apartment is just perfect and all we wanted. Its close to Hampton Downs race track as well as a quick commute to Hamilton. Te Kauwhata is a quiet rural town and the Candle makers cottage is the perfect quiet and comfortable retreat.
We stayed for one night and hosts Jan & John are discreet and unobtrusive, but available hosts happy to answer any questions.
The apartment is very spacious ( the biggest we've stayed in) and spotless. The bed is comfortable with good quality linen, and its great having an ensuite. The kitchen is well equipped and the supermarket just a short drive into town. We were amazed at the beautiful breakfast items left for is by Jan. Fresh free range eggs, bacon and all the makings for a continental breakfast if you wanted this option.
This accommodation is totally peaceful and quiet. At night we could even see the stars and satellites passing over as there is no reflected light from the city. we enjoyed our overnight stay and will certainly book this accommodation again next time we visit.
