Loved our stay here, very friendly lady running the place. Two couples stayed in a two bedroom apartment and it was fine. We just loved this place and would definitely stay again highly recommended to either couples on your own or a group as the rooms are well separated.

Booked a night for my friends 30th and we were blown away on arrival, stunning views and lovely accommodation. One night of relaxation felt like we'd been away for weeks. Can't fault the hospitality, looking forward to visiting again, thank you so much!

Thank you very much Sharon, you are an awesome host, and Olly (the dog) for making us feel at home. We had a wonderful weekend, cheers

Had a lovely one night stay in the Whenua apartment with my partner, we got engaged while we were there so will always be a special place for us.
