We stayed here twice on our way to/from Kawau Island. We had flow into Auckand from Sydney that morning. The owners allowed us to leave our rental car and our excess luggage in the room whilst we stayed on Kawau island for 2 nights. The room was clean and nicely appointed. The more than adequate breakfast provisions were delivered to our room the night before. it was a pleasant walk down to the ferry. We would recommend it to others as it is a convenient stay before going over to the Island.
