    Great Easter retreat

    Close to beaches and Gulf Harbour. Great hosting and friendly. Great views from most rooms. Many thanks.

    Great location, super well appointed. Perfect for families with small children.

    Ed and Sue were lovely hosts. Had everything we needed and much more. Would be a great place for an extended stay. Easy walk to Manly Beach. Would have loved screens on the windows (the mosquitoes love me) but they don't seem to be commonplace in NZ.

    We had really great days at Ed‘s and Sue‘s house. For us it was simply perfect. Great hosts!

    When one looks out for a place that can be both a perfect starting point for trips around northland and a lovely place close to a nice beach with great views - well, then that‘s THE place. The house is just 150 meters away from a lovely, calm beach. And the morning starts with a great view over the bay. It is exactly how the pictures discribe it - and even better! Ed and Sue are lovely hosts. We spent our Christmas in their house. And they were so kind to leave presents for us. Especially for Germans one of the highest signs of hospitality. We stood for six days and easily could have spent more time. The whole architecture and interior is very generous, with a lots of light and plenty of space for everyone. All in all: a lovely place for everyone who arrives from a world trip and needs a great place to experience NZ.
