Very high standard of furnishings and equipment. Lovely peaceful situation but not too far away from Takaka. Our every need was catered for as Jean has put a lot of thought into what guests may need. Really enjoyed our stay.

I don't recommend Rawhiti caves for an overnight stay. Majestic but the roof leaks and there are goats doing you know what all over the floor. Much better to stay at Rocky Ridge! 5 star comfort and the 3 pet sheep on the other side of the fence (and no leaks). Built and cared for with much love and no little flair by Jean. Loved it. You can still visit the caves.

Haven't looked at various holiday properties around Golden Bay, this one appealed to me as it was small (for just me and my husband), in a quiet location , yet within easy access to the beaches: I got more than I expected. The cottage is situated on th hill side , above Moupipi, amongst the bush with views over to the sea. Although it is situated on a farm, it felt as if we were the ony ones for miles(not including the many Tui and Bell Birds). The cottage is "immaculate", with everything that a self caterer could dream of! As experienced travellers, my husband and I have never had a kitchen so well equiped, with basic, ingredients inclding variousdried herbs, olive oil, Balsalmic vinegar, flour, sugar....and the rest. We were only travelling from Norht Canterbury so brought a lot of food with us....however, for international travellers, this kitchen has everthing you would want to create a meal....just add meat and veges! The rest of the interior of the cottage was very comfortable, with an excellent and simple sound system (Blue Tooth YAY!). The garden has plenty of seting space, with an easy to use Webber BBQ. One of the highlights of the garden is the bath..a wonderful place to soak away the day..big enough for two and Epsom Salts provided. The worst thing was..having to leave!
