“Incredibly friendly & warm proprietors, excellent accommodation and great surrounds”

person found this review helpful

We stayed with Earthstead Villas 3 nights while in Cambridge NZ travelling with 2 young children.

The stay, in one of the larger cottages, was incredibly enjoyable. While Earthstead Villas and it's owners, takes the issue of environmental sustainably seriously but does it well and with a sense of fun. Susie and Alistair, the proprietors, were well informed about local attractions, and warm & generous, particularly with our kids (aged 7 & 3).

They (and their parents) thoroughly enjoyed staying in a place with such lush surrounds (gardens and Cambridge proper), which made an excellent base for touring the attractions found in the Waikato province.
Our kids really enjoyed the opportunity to wake up to sounds of chickens & cows and even had the opportunity to help Alistair feel the chooks and milk a cow!!

I would heartedly recommend Earthstay Villas to any traveller who values a good hearth with friendly and accommodating proprietors as they wander thorough Waikato, NZ.

“Escape to somewhere wonderful!”
Reviewed 27 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was a place that I didn't want to leave! So pretty, so lovingly set up and run, absolutely a dream. Alastair and Suzie are welcoming hosts and Alastair showed the kids around the farm and let them help with the animals. The 2-bedroom villa was so comfortable with all of its soft wood, special tiles and handmade (by the hosts themselves!) bricks. Add all of the lush greenery surrounding this private yet accessible rental and you have a wonderful escape. I highly recommend this property!

“Perfection”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Loved every moment of our stay. A gorgeous studio cottage, dessert was produced after we had been into Cambridge for dinner and breakfast was amazing. All the food we ate was produced in their own kitchen! We were sent on our way with the left over home made bread from breakfast and a tomato from the garden.We would love to go back for a longer stay.

“Kiwi hospitality at it's International Best”
Reviewed 24 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We do not really want to review this Villa. We want it all to ourselves!
This Villa actually met our expectations and beyond. The immaculate and painstaking detailing in this handcrafted villa are what you would hope to find in your own luxury home. We witnessed the tiling being hand-cut and hand-laid, the product of which will amaze everyone who sees it. Add to that the extraordinarily thoughtful and thorough daily provision of breakfast and servicing, and the willingness to personalise service to your needs, and this property will be hard to better.
We cooked our own meals frequently during our two week stay, and found the kitchen very well equipped. When we needed a larger pot for the fresh crayfish, this was no trouble at all for our hosts.
We found the location excellent even with business in Hamilton, with the back roads only a short 20 minute drive away. And upon return after a busy day, nothing better than to relax in the claw foot tub bath scented by the herbal sachet with candles lit.
We would return to stay here even though we may not always have business in the area.
We look forward to further stays with Suzie and Alistair and their family.
