I chanced upon Rangihau Ranch's website whilst making a search on my phone in Katikati for Coromandel accomodation. Given the nature of such devices I made a gut decision based on the information presented in their first page and my family and I were tremendously rewarded as a result.
Tessa and Nick proved warm hosts who made certain that our every need was met with a minimum of fuss or intrusion. The accommodations were warm and inviting with every service we could have asked for available, including delicious fresh produce from the adjacent garden.
Tessa took us on a ride to the higher country at the back of the house on horses individually suited to our respective experience as riders. She and Nick knew intimately the natures of their horses and all of ours suited us well. The country was spectacular and Tessa's manner and guidance through it relaxed and knowledgeable.
We live in the bush, adjacent to world heritage rainforest and I have much experience as a stockman working by horseback so our delight is not that of delight at a novel experience, rather to stumble upon a tourism experience so warmly and competently executed by such lovely people in such magnificent surroundings.
Definitely the highlight of our Kiwi holiday and highly recommended for others.
Many thanks Nick and Tessa
