Great place and great hosts, the cottage had a great selection of supplies. Enjoyed the stay and would rebook.
Fabulous property, clean, spacious and close enough to walk to wharf, restaurants, shops and the pub. The beds were divine after our tramping the week at Able Tasman National Park. The house is very quiet and private. Very well set up with full kitchen and laundry etc. Diane was an amazing host, with great communication and very helpful when we had issues due to cancelled flights and lockdown. Thanks again Diane, we love your part of the country.
Had a lovely family stay over Easter. The house is really well setup and has lots of space to feel like a home away from home. House was also lovely and clean and has quality toiletries and household items. Very handy to the Mapua village shops which includes a great bakery and Sprig & Fern pub. Also only a short walk to the Mapua wharf for more places to eat and have a beer. Dianne was a lovely host and happily let us have some beautiful produce from their garden.
