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 !

Awesome little batches more like a tree house style nice and cozy, if you love nature this is the spot! Dog, Sheep and fresh milk from the cows you will love the stay here. Just 2 hours drive to Cape Reinga from here so easy. Hosts are so lovely and they love talking about local activities. Take your power banks with you as the rooms are eco-friendly with only solar lights. We are going to stay there again this summer <3 Cheers to Matt and Sue :D
