We spent 6 days at Veronica's View and the views are stunning. We got off the plane in Auckland and drove up there and it was an amazing place to relax. Anita & Gavin are truly special hosts, warm & welcoming with great suggestions for the area. The house is not only immaculate but has any feature you could think of to make you comfortable. We especially liked the doors that retract across the entire living room and let the outside in.There are a lot of activities and sightseeing in the area, and I can't think of a better base to explore from.
