Highly rated 5-star review from our happy guest, Emma

Beautiful house, well appointed, great communication, and the location is gorgeous - a 180 degree view of mountains, hills, and kanuka trees.

5-star testimonial from Charlie's family getaway with kids

The most gorgeous house, beautifully decorated and furnished. Sitting outside in the evening and being able to hear the stags roar in the nearby mountains was just the most magical experience. Hamish our host incredibly accommodating and communicative.
Could not recommend highly enough.

Stellar review from Michael, who was pleased with our serene, remote escape in the great outdoors

Fantastic place, can't recommend it enough! Really spacious, comfortable, serene - we even woke up to horses grazing in the back yard! Hamish is a great host and is very responsive. If you want somewhere that's isolated with great views but with a luxury feel then this is the place for you!

Rebecca commends us for our earth-build, and rates our venue highly for corporate events, small functions, and special celebrations

The vista from the lounge, kitchen, dinning room and deck IS what this place is all about. the house itself boasts a large and useful space for family/friends small functions and get-togethers, obviously this has been set up for entertaining which is perfect given the fact you are in this space and place because of the A, location, B the 'eco-ness' of the build itself.

Genea was pleased with our luxury house, perfect for relaxing activities amongst friends and co-workers.

An amazing spot - the house is fabulous and the location is outstanding. There were 6 of us and we found it was big enough for us all to relax and have our own space as well as enjoy each other’s company. Hamish was a great host - would recommend a stay here to everyone.

Sunethra writes us a perfect review for our large family accommodation!

We were a group of 8 and had the best time here. This is a gorgeous property, there is so much detail in every aspect of the house and not to forget the views from the backyard! We had our dinner outdoors with the backdrop of the mountains and it was such a great space for the kids to play some cricket too. Just beautiful!!! Made our Kaikoura stay magical.

Katelyn gives us a raving review! She thoroughly enjoyed the organic, eco-friendly amenities in our luxury resort.

Wow, wow, wow!! Of all the places we have stayed in New Zealand, THIS is the most well appointed place we have ever stayed at; it's clear Hamish has lovingly and thoughtfully built and created this stunning retreat. And not just for a grand show, but every small detail down to quality of the linens, towels, organic shampoo, it was pure joy to experience this haven. I can't wait to return and tell my friends about this gem of a place. Do yourselves a favor and indulge. You won't regret it!!

Anna enjoyed the romantic getaway in our warm winter holiday home.

The place was incredible. It was so warm, even without any heating. Perfectly clean, beautifully decorated, spacious, and surrounded by the most spectacular views. Hamish was so friendly and helpful, a great host. We will 100% be returning.

Justin enjoyed his unique men's retreat between mountain and ocean.

A great home with the decor matching the peaceful and scenic surrounds. House had everything we needed and more. Check in was easy and the hosts were very friendly and helpful.

Ben, his wife, and their children enjoyed kid-friendly activities on the property with the local farm animals

We enjoyed our stay, loved the tranquil setting and the kids loved interacting with all the animals.
