We stayed here with our two small children and had such an amazing weekend. The scenery is stunning, the 3 bedroom house is wonderful, well kept and comfortable. It has everything you need including a spa pool overlooking the water. Spent nights supping local wine, listening to morporks in the trees, looking up to stars. Gorgeous quality time while the little ones slept. If there is once place you need to visit in New Zealand this is it! Hosts are great too, they are close by but house is very secluded and they ensured we had a very enjoyable stay. Just a short hop north of Auckland, we'll definitely be back!
