Rain-forest walks nearby through lush taro plantations, past ancient maraes and through valleys where the only sound is the wind through the coconut palms and the call of the wood pidgeon.

"Clean, comfy and convenient!"

I was so impressed and relieved to find that the accommodation I had found online was clean, comfortable, and convenient. Sue was so helpful in arranging our airport transfers, and accommodating our various requests before and during our stay. Such great value for money, providing all we needed to make our stay comfortable and convenient with full kitchen and laundry facilities. Situated halfway between town and Muri, which worked great for us. Highly recommended!
