We came for a family birthday nearby and we're so happy we chose this place to stay. Guy and Joyce made us feel so welcome and looked after us so well. Breakfast was lovely with home made jams and we had home made fruit cake as well. It's very quiet but close to town, beautiful scenery everywhere. Rooms are so...

We had the upper apartment for a couple of nights. Joyce and Guy were extremely welcoming and friendly (Guy gave our car a thorough pressure wash to remove the cement dust we'd picked up from the roadworks on their road). Having first thought we'd go out to dinner each evening we found it much better to have a nice winery...

We stayed in the apartment, which is a one bedroom en suite with a kitchen and lounge, up a spiral staircase. It has some beautiful views of the sea, farmland and the bush. The apartment was clean, fully equipped and had a lovely sea breeze at all times - really comfortable even in the heat! It comes with WiFi, and...

We spent 2 nights in the top apartment which has sea views as well as views of the garden, farmland , horses, bush and many birds. Access is via a steep spiral staircase from the deck below so you pass someone else's windows on your way up, and is quite a challenge with luggage, but it's worth it for the...

The owners of this beautiful property, Joyce and Guy, were incredibly welcoming, warm and helpful. Joyce met us at the ferry from Auckland and Guy was eager to guide us in planning our day, doing so with enthusiasm and charm. The breakfast included homemade jams and stewed fruits and the kitchen ares was open for our use when we had...

An amazing and relaxing place to stay. It is on the better side of the island, within walking distance from the gorgeous town of Oneroa and a short walk to the best wineries on the island such as Cable Bay (1km) and Mudbrick as well as Jurassic Ridge. Great walking tracks nearby with views overlooking Auckland city. Hosts Guy and...

We stayed two nights at Kowhai Close. It is a quiet and peaceful retreat, yet very close ( i.e. within walking distance) of the Oneroa Village and local vineyards and restaurants. Mudbrick winery and Cable Bay are close by and very recommended for great food and wine. Joyce and Guy are great hosts.

Stayed in the top apartment. Enjoyed the peace & quiet, no road noises, only the birds singing. Plenty of room and comfy bed. Well equipped kitchen with a faulty toaster replaced immediately. In fact possibly the biggest feature of the property is the very helpful couple running the property, They set out to be sure that we were comfortable. Handy...
