Great check-in experience

We have two self contained cottages.
The views are amazing and cottage cosy and comfortable, the price is for a double. Extras are $20.00 per person.
My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (pets).
We are a 15/20ming drive past the Waitomo Village so it pays to eat before you come up or bring supplies with you. There is a two element cook top and a small microwave.
Your welcome to come and share our little piece of paradise.

Great little cabin with beautiful views of the valley. The glow worms and the stars, are both spectacular. If you have time Marokpa Falls are some of the best in NZ,and the natural bridge is worth checking out too.

The cabin and grounds were better than I imagined. If you want off the beaten path (but not too far off) and a truly unique, nature experience, this place is for you. The accommodation was quaint and comfortable and the views were spectacular. If only we had stayed longer. This…

Stunning location and glow worms outside your door! Need I say more? But I will! Incredibly thoughtful touches leaving some snacks and home made goodies. Cozy space and heated prior to our arrival. Loved spending time here - wish we spent more!

This place was amazing! The glow worms were a quick walk from the cottage, and almost as stunning as the beautiful view we woke up to. Although Rachel wasn't there, Angus was an outstanding host! Honestly wish we could have stayed longer than the one night, but it was the…
