"Beautiful location and very nice house. Super close to queen charlotte trail. The host Frith was very helpful with information and support.”"

Simon, Dec 19

"The photos of this place do not do it justice. It's a lovely, clean and tidy kiwi bach which was home to our family over the Christmas period. We had two young children in the house (9mth who had just started crawling and a 3 year old) and found it very comfortable and safe."
