“Wonderful Visit”
Reviewed 25 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I would recommend anyone travelling into this area to stay at this B&B. The room was spacious. The shower was outstanding (best we have experienced). The area is beautiful and the hosts were gracious. We loved this visit.

“Gorgeous Location with Amazing Hosts!”
Reviewed 11 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Brenda was extremely flexible and easy to work with leading up to our stay. The location was easy to find, and she immediately made us feel welcomed. The room was private and well-furnished, we were well prepared for, and they even shared coffee and conversation with us the next morning! We loved the neighborhood, adored the morning view from our window, savored the hot tub, and found staying with them much more accommodating than a hotel.

“Beautiful location;”
Reviewed 5 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This is a lovely self-contained apartment in beautiful gardens with great views across the hills. The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at home. There is an excellent breakfast provided. You have use of the owner's outside spa and there are laundry facilities if required. It is a short drive into Matamata (20 mins). This is a lovely peaceful place and I would thoroughly recommend it.

“A comfortable stay in a magificent garden setting.”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Hosts very welcoming, Unit was clean, comfortable and spacious. Sighted conveniently close to Mata Mata, the stay was enjoyable. Room was well equipped,, kitchenette potentially small/under-equipped, but we knew what we were getting at time of booking. Only slightly annoying was the operation of the adjoining garage door early morning.
