Потрясающее место. Космические виды. Очень уютно и тихо, вдали от суеты. Мне достался небольшой домик, с очень удобной кроватью и всем необходимым. Все очень чисто, видна забота и любовь. Метью и Су очень дружелюбные и жизнерадостные ребята. Был рад пообщаться с ними. Их собака Хоуп это что-то. Это место - один из поводов вернуться в Новую Зеландию.
Awesome place. Cosmic views. Very comfortable and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle. I got a small house with a very comfortable bed and everything you need. Everything is very clean, visible care and love. Matthew and Sue are very friendly and cheerful guys. I was glad to chat with them. Their dog Hope is something. This place is one of the reasons to return to New Zealand.

Matthew and his wife are great host. I spent a lovely and peaceful night at their farm. My cabin was great and very comfortable. There are a shared kitchen with all stuff you need to cook and a shared bathroom which is super clean. Matthew helps you every time if you have some wishes and in the morning you get a great breakfast with fresh milk. 100% recommended.

A fabulous place to stay, extremely clean and each 'pod' is beautifully decorated while the room in the main house is stylish, spacious and very comfortable. Try Matt's delicious pizza's, you won't be disappointed. A great place to stay at the end or beginning of the Twin Coast Trail. Matt and Sue are very welcoming, sociable and generous and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. They have a little piece of paradise and have created a magic home.

Matt and Sue are fantastic hosts and have one of the most beautifully finished houses I've seen, and in one of the quietest parts of the countryside. They went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable and the property itself is perfect for relaxing and getting out of whatever busy routine you had before. Can thoroughly recommend a stay with these two in their home. Thanks heaps!!

Our hosts were very welcoming and the facilities were craftily designed and original ! We had a wonderful sleep waking with the sounds of the country. Very peaceful. Matt, Sue and Fischer were very interesting people and happily shared their time with us, making home-made pizzas for our last dinner. Unique experience !
