“Fantasic Stay with Warm and Friendly Host”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a wonderful stay at Punehu Stream cottage.. Liz is an amazing host and the dog, cat and chickens make you feel right at home. The breakfasts are fantastic and the ambience of the setting is wonderful! And the real bonus is being able to purchase lavender products made on site! Thank you Liz!

“Taranaki haven spacious homely slice of paradise”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

An amazing must stay cottage in the Naki. We have travelled most of NZ but never felt more relaxed than when we stayed here. Fantastic home baked continental breakfast made by Liz. We have booked again for later in the year . The cottage is attached to part of the property but you feel like you have the whole grounds to yourself as the main house is not visible from the accommodation. Thelma and Louise the two chickens greet you after a day out with fluffy the little dog. We were amazed at the size of the cottage two very large bedrooms and a big open plan lounge and kitchen. This place certainly exceeded our expectations the photos don't do it justice. Great location to explore Taranaki 40 minutes away from New Plymouth endless remote beaches along the coast short drive to Stratford, Hawera and South Taranaki. Beautiful coastal walkways, gardens to visit lots to do but not enough time we will return again and again.

“One of the best!”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This whole place exceeded our expectations and provided one of the most comfortable and relaxed vacations we have had in over a decade. The "cottage" is very well appointed, indeed the description does not do it justice. The grounds are well maintained and the stream is a delight. Almost no noise even from the Surf Highway that runs beside the property. Being able to take our dog (always on a lead and properly wormed etc) was an extra bonus. The lavender and gallery also gave a real plus to our enjoyment - highly recommended for a break.

We stayed with 3 friends in this accom and had an amazing time. The accom is beautiful, very spacious, cozy, and etxremely homely. We loved the rooms, the kitchen and the fireplace. Liz has kept the grounds in amazing condition along a beautiful natural stream filled with eels and trout. Liz the owner is great, very hospitable and always ready to help out where she can. Recommend!

Wonderful place to stay and a great hostess. Close to the sea for the beach and surfing and to Mt.Taranaki for hiking and skiing. Very comfortable, clean and well maintained cottage with all amenities and parking. Beautiful gardens and lavender fields.
