Thank you for a wonderful 3 nights.  Amazing lodge with amazing views.  We did lots whilst we were here - sand dune surfing, glow worm hunting, kauri hugging, waterfall clambering.  Lots of walking and we still didn't get to do a few more things on our list.
Children:  I loved the swing.  I liked the glow worms and the swing.

Your place is amazing and tranquil and what we hoped to experience while in New Zealand.  I loved the early mornings with the mist rising in the valley and the sound of waterfalls and birds.  And I loved the swing too!

Fantastic hospitality.  It's truly a gem of a place and reminds of Psalm 19 "The heavens declare the glory of God and the skies proclaim the work of His hands."  You, Candy and Rawiri are blessed in this place.  I really enjoyed the opportunity to plant the silverbeet.  God bless your land. Luv it!

I have never been to NZ before and this part is a wonderful place to get a sense of the land and topography, the sea and its fish, how cattle graze.  The various trees and vegetation are remarkable and your hospitality was genuine and delightful.  I loved it all, even the rain!
