This is a fabulous place for getting together. We have just had a family Christmas there and from the word go it has been wonderful. Sally, the Property Manager is amazing, nothing is too much trouble, which is so reassuring. Thank you for everything Sally! The accommodation itself is incredible and different. Needs to be experienced to appreciate the whole set up. It is away from everything but then again so near. I would definitely recommend Pond Cottage and would have no hesitation in returning. Note there is not a dishwasher, which can be viewed as a negative but this turns into a positive when all hands are on deck which makes it fun!
Thanks Shae, we had an awesome hens night out there, great place to party and awesome hospitality, I am already looking into booking it again, I would recommend it to anyone looking at getting away, Shae is lovely to deal with and very accommodating. See you again soon, thanks Tania
This Accommodation is the best Bach I have ever stayed in. The feeling that this home and the host give you as you enter is indescribable. It is so relaxing but yet close to everything Oakura has to offer. The swimming hole is beautiful and very refreshing. I can't recommend this Bach enough and we will definitely return. Thanks Shae
