We had 16 people and we all fit. Lots of lounge space and the big tables were great. Good views and flat area for playing on. Good fishing, not far to beach for adventures (swimming beach at Riversdale, 25 mins drive).

Lovely and spacious property with amazing views and remote/rural feel. Made full use of the large, fenced section which was ideal for young kids and lawn games etc. We managed to go diving and get a limit of Paua from the nearby beach which was great. Very enjoybale stay and great way to bring in the New Year.

Secluded rugged paradise
Loved staying here! It's a peaceful location with beautiful views. We had a large group and the space was big enough for all of us while still feeling cosy. Loved having the fire in winter and everyone appreciated the comfortable beds. It was really easy heading down the road to find the beach which was fun to explore. The hosts we're excellent at communication. Would love to come back!

Superb place to get away from busy lives
Great place to isolate from rest of the world. Nice and tidy facility and friendly owners. The property has been upgraded since the last time I've been there. There's no cell reception at the property but you can make calls if you walk a bit up the road.

The best family getaway Wairarapa
Awesome place to unwire the family stress to explore a low key beach on farm/beach hill side with a great slice of New Zealand views. unload your motorbike and go graver paua and crayfish straight from the rocks at knee to waste depths and enjoy a great fresh feed from the sea. Motorbike 4x4 quad a must to get to the good spots for diving and setting cray pots. very enjoyable get away for me and my family and friends.

Plenty of space but very remote
If you want seclusion perfect but don't expect beach access (15 min drive down dangerous gravel road) nor cell coverage nor any activies but the fun you make yourselves. Also host expected us to clean property ready for her next guests but doesn't even supply a working vacuum or cleaning products. So work in hosts reasonable cleaning free as a given and you won't be surprised. Sleeps the amount listed comfortably though and good indoor common area

Amazing place to stay!
We had an amazing stay at this retreat. Large enough for a big group with fantastic privacy and amenities provided. Carmen was great to deal with, would absolutely recommend!

This is a beautifully appointed property situated in a stunning location
This is a beautifully appointed property situated in a stunning location. The property is maintained to a very high standard and has everything needed for a large group. I particularly enjoyed the amazing views and the wood burning stove which kept the whole bach warm.
