Jay and his family's cottage is an exceptional place we were delighted to live in during our stay in iconic Piha. This Kiwi bach feels more like a real home with a great selection of books, vinyl records and loads of design accessories and decorational items inspired by the South Pacific islands. The location on a quiet road back from the beach turned out to be the perfect setting with views towards nothing else but greenery from the deck. We were able to listen to the sound of the ocean at night and birds singing all through the day. The beach with great surf is an easy 10 minutes stroll away and there's some nice walks starting virtually from the doorstep at the end of the road into the surrounding hills covered with shady trees. There's even a waterfall suitable to dip and refresh during a hot day. Really guys, this is paradise! Should you get a chance to visit Piha, stay at Jay's house. He is very communicative and easy going. Even Jay couldn't be in Piha himself during our stay, he instructed his neighbour and everything was perfectly taken care of. Definitely one of the places in this world you would like to stay forever. Highly recommended!
If you are in Piha, you should never pass the chance of staying at Jay's!!!! Piha is (email hidden), and Jay's place helps you relax and take it all in!!! Our family felt at home!!
Jay, thank you for responding to all our communication and in a timely fashion and allowing my many requests through. You are awesome to deal with!! When we are back in Piha, my family will be sure to contact you again.
this property was better than what we expected. Very friendly owners, quiet street yet few mins walk to Piha or to the nearby two dozen Treks
We enjoyed this stay and will use it again when we go back to Piha in a few months. Great property, highly recommended.
Would always have them back in the future..
Jay and Dianne are fabulous people who truly treated my place as though it was their own. Easy communication and just a great couple to deal with..........I'd make my place available anytime for them..........Thank Jay and Dianne
Jay and his partner (email hidden) for six months and took care of it like it was there own. We communicated well and he was very accommodating when I needed to get into the space one afternoon to repack for one of my adventures.
It was a pleasure having such wonderful people taking care of my home and I would have them back anytime.
