Self check-inEasily check yourself in with the lockbox.
Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

For keen lovers of nature and early morning rises there is the opportunity to hear a range of bird songs from early in the morning to sunset, after which our native owl, the Morepork takes over, (with the occasional cry from the Kiwi bird.) The sounds vary with the seasons and which birds are currently in residence.
It is really nice to sit and enjoy a drink while listening to the birds.
Minimum of 3 nights recommended, weekly and monthly discounts applicable.

Phillip has a nice hillside home with a forest view, very close to Haruru falls. We had a very enjoyable stay at his home. He is a very generous host and is quite personable and fun to talk to. I would recommend his home to anyone looking to enjoy the environs.
