.We have just returned to New Zealand from a wonderful holiday in Vara's hillside cottage in Muri.
Our experience there was one of cleanliness and a very efficient housekeeper who visited every day was an extra bonus.
serena and conrad and family are lovely people who made us very welcome,and were very helpful when we needed them.
The place itself is in a lovely location up on the hillside and has a gorgeous view,it is private and quite safe,they have a lovely old dog who guards the place,and a cat called Garfield who would be able to fight of any unwanted persons,he carries such good body weight.
The pool was great for the kids,keeping them occupied most of the time,it was clean and had a lovely area to cook by,with barbeque. etc.
The cooking facilities are ample and I highly reccomend this place to families and single couples who want a hideaway for their holiday.
We took my mother in law with us, and in the cottage there was heaps of room for all of us without being under each others feet, and she thoroughly enjoyed herself there.
I had a bit of trouble with the microwave,told the maintenence man it did not work,anyway had a blonde moment that day, it was not plugged in,gave us a good laugh.
Thanks for the great holiday,hope to visit again sometime.
