We were so excited to find that the accommodation and views both far exceeded the (already amazing) pictures!
Amir and Hilda were really welcoming, making sure we were comfortable, felt safe and were perfect hosts (even making sure I didn't forget my jacket)! We had plenty of privacy, fresh fruit and time with the Alpacas as well as easily accessing all the local attractions.
The king bed was super comfortable with the best views to wake up to and the bathroom was fully equipped with everything you need, including unlimited hot water!
Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy nature in comfort and stay off the beaten track within easy reach of all the North Island has to offer. This was our favourite accommodation of our New Zealand adventure from Auckland to Milford Sound and we can't wait to return.
Note: if you don't like nature, animals, music, hot showers, fluffy pillows, peace or fun then this place isn't for you.

With a great view overlooking lush, green hills & valleys - and the giant ferns that give it an almost primeval vibe, The Dome is little slice of NZ paradise. Ticks all the boxes with it's creature comforts & amenities and perfect for singles, couples or even a small family. A bit far out in the country (would need a car) but that's the whole point isn't it?
