My partner and I loved staying at the haystack cottage. The spa under the stars was amazing and all ready to go when we got there. We were excited about the little breakfast cereals! Everything you need. Comfy bed too:). Very private out the back. Just wonderful. Very warm room with a heater provided and loads of movies to choose from. Adrian and Julie are wonderful. There if you have any queries and great recommendations for the area of Riversdale. Views of the beautiful beach from the room which was awesome. Had an amazing time and would definitely go back again. Highly recommend. Thank you again guys.

Cheers!

My wife Brenda and I had a great 3 nights at Haystack Cottage, despite the weather being kind of wintery (unsurprisingly). The cottage was well stocked with supplies, including bread, cereals and milk, and the spa was really relaxing. Adrian's recommendation for having a Friday night meal at the Golf Club was well justified. The sun came out on the morning we left, (Murphy's law!), and we were happy to accept a parting gift of grapefruit and walnuts from our hosts. Thanks Adrian and Julie, for a memorable stay at Riversdale Beach.

Stayed here in the height of winter and wasn't disappointed. With just a tiny heater, the Cottage was kept very warm. And with the private spa at the back door, so were we. Cottage has everything we needed and more. Including green top milk, thanks Adrian. Great selection of DVD's, many we hadn't seen but didn't stay long enough to watch. And all the important Sky channels - sport, movies, sport, cooking, sport ...

Was surprised main house was so close, BUT we were given every bit of privacy. Even when we tried the second spa on the main deck, the spa with the view of the beach. Out under the stars. And rain the day we used it.

Lovely beach for walks. Shop has just about everything you'll need if you forget anything, including off-licence. Golf club had big hearty farming meals so take an appetite. And cash - golf club runs bar with EFTPOS but not the kitchen which only takes cash ... readily available at bar if you forget. Friendly farming folk on the Friday night we went too. Apparently golf club and bar are open most days.

But trust me, if you take your own food, you won't have any problems with storage, refrigeration, or cooking at Haystack Cottage.

Thanks Haystack Cottage.

We stayed three nights here to explore this area including a day trip to Castlepoint. The cottage is small but has everything you need and the spa is certainly an added bonus. Heard a Morepork while in the spa one night. No street lights and quiet. The resident animals (dog and cat) are friendly but then we are animal lovers anyway. Thanks Adrian for your information on the area. Highly recommended - Dave & Carol

Awesome relaxing get away for couples. Fantastic unobtrusive hosts, very friendly and welcoming at all times. Comfortable bed and cosy cottage. We loved the spa pool..just out the back door in a private rustic setting, was lovely in the pouring rain. Lovely continental breakfasts, plenty of extrax provided too. We fully recommend this cottage to anyone, wanting to chillout and rejuvenate themselves. Thanks Adrian, we will be back! :-)

Wow this place was awesome and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of wanting a chilled out weekend away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The cottage was perfect with everything you could possibly need and the spa was divine. We couldn't have wished for better weather either. Our thanks to the hosts Adrian and Julie who were very helpful too and can't forget the friendly cat who was a puppy in another life!

when we arrived the bed wasn't made, there were bug eggs and leaf litter through the sheets, the bedding was thrown all over the couch, towels thrown all over kitchen bench unfolded, dirty dishes in sink, trap and drain out of shower (sitting in base of shower) with hair and debris over shower base, breakfast food and milk not provided, floor not vaccumed leaves and fluff all over floor, spider webs all over outdoor furniture and spa, car mats thrown on outdoor seating, trampoline unusable. no one home to rectify situation so we didn't stay. sadly there was no accommodation (that we could see - no cell reception to look up on line) in Riversdale so had to drive to masterton, very disappointed would not recommended. host also claims that he didn't know we were coming even though he confirmed booking with me and the sign out front of property said no vacancy
Owner's reply
Sorry but we are human.
For the second time in 9 years of running Haystack I mucked up the booking and did not transfer it to the booking book so thought the next guests were coming the following weekend so Haystack was not remotely ready for these guests.
We leave the sign at the gate showing no vacancy all the time as we don't want people entering our garden as we are often not there.
Despite showing our genuine remorse as it was my error and offering a free weekends stay bitterness remains.
We have fantastic happy guests but sorry in this case I put my hand up ,did not deliver and tried to put right.
I ain't perfect!

Really well presented, quiet, relaxing place. Very tidy and comfortable, friendly heplful host. Loved the private spa pool in the courtyard. Had a great weekend lots to do , long beach walks, picnics, fishing,exploring rock pools, day trip to Castlepoint, stopping at Tinui is a must. The store does great fish n chips and the golf club makes visitors very welcome. Would love to visit again some time.
