“Perfection”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

One of the most beautiful views we've seen, stylish and modern property, and professionally managed but with local charm. We were definitely satisfied and would visit again.

“A real treat for either a couple, a family, or two couples”
Reviewed 7 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have stayed here before as a couple and ever since have been keen to take our grown up kids back here when we visited NZ again as it's such a special spot. Due to the flexibility of this home you have two separate living areas which provided accommodation for 6 nicely. The "two living areas" layout mean this is great for a couple, a family, or two couples, so there is a lot of flexibility.

The home is beautifully laid out with quality furnishings, an awesome view, and best of all provides total privacy in a comparatively remote and isolated location. There is no better place to just chill out and get away from it all, complete with all the luxury you need not to mention the incredible ocean views. Those evenings just lazing on the deck watching the sunsets were just the bomb! And the spa is another added extra since we were there that again has an awesome view.

Bill is very helpful and easy to deal with, and you couldn't ask for a better host. This is our second stay and hopefully won;t be our last!

“The Perfect Retreat”
Reviewed 14 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Fantastic place in a quiet little area. We booked this place to finish off our two week holiday with relaxation in mind and that's exactly what we got. The views were spectacular, the house beautifully presented and the spa was a great added bonus. Both beaches within walking distance (despite the big driveway) and often to yourself. Everything down to a key was explained in the handy booklet from aircon to TV, from dishwasher to spa. By far the best ending to our NZ holiday!!

“Spectacular view and place!”
Reviewed 14 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Bill's place was absolutely amazing! The view was spectacular and the location was perfect - close to many beautiful Bay's (Taupiri, Elliott's and Oke). The place was spotless; beds were comfortable - overall the place had everything we needed, plus more (gym, hot tub, kayaks...) We also received a warm welcome! Thanks so much for the fond memories. We would definitely come back.

The accomadations were over the top the view was to die for the owners were in contact with us from the time we booked until we left . We will book again when we return to New Zealand and would like to stay longer.

“Perfection, it's better than the pictures. A+++++”
Reviewed 8 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I loved staying here, the place is two stories and perfectly appointed. There is so much room and everything has been thought of to make your stay enjoyable. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner, and he responds quickly to emails. For the price per night, I have never had better value for money, and I am well travelled.
