Kathy from Nelson
Loved this bach. Very clean, comfortable, warm, well equipt, quiet, private, easy parking, a little bit quirky and a wonderfully short the walk to the beach for sunset/sunrise. Owners really easy to communicate with, instructions/directions easy too. Even though there are other houses nearby it still felt like it was in the forest. A great base for a break in that area. Loved the art!

What a wee slice of paradise. This beautiful tree top house was a great place to rest, relax and watch the stormy weather. A truly idyllic location....

We spent 3 weeks touring beautiful New Zealand and stayed at various homes, but Wharepuni was our absolute favorite. The home itself is spectacular, and the owner is truly one of the most genuine people you\'ll meet in all of New Zealand. The master bedroom has a wonderfully comfortable bed, and plenty of hot water and fluffy towels await you. The location can not be beat - we were able to take a spectacular walk through the jungle to an amazing spot right on the beach - with it\'s own little waterfall. Truly a gem! If we ever come back, we\'ll stay here again - hopefully for much longer! Many thanks for a beautiful stop in New Zealand! Cyndi & Craig Walker
