We (me, my wife and our three year old boy) stayed here for 5 nights and absolutely loved it. Incredible location equidistant to Omaha Beach, Warkworth and just about everywhere else you might want to go. The accommodation is modern, minimal and sits perfectly in the private and beautiful natural environment. Thanks Michael for looking after us- we'll be back again.

What an amazing property, set amongst its own vineyard this property will take your breath away upon arrival. Our Bach was at the bottom of the property only 3min stroll to the tennis court and pool. Fabulous with 2 toddlers as we were able to kick a ball outside our Bach. The view from the others up the hill is amazing looking out over the property and the estuary so would get amazing sunsets. Could just imagine a wine on the deck at that time.
The pool was fabulous, heated to 30deg we spent hours in it each day, sometimes just on our own even though at full occupancy. There are free kayaks to hire also.
The Bach itself was warm and cozy, great amenities and supplies incl paper towels, plastic storage containers, salt and pepper, a Webber BBQ to cook on and plenty of utensils. The washing machine and dryer an absolute bonus
The staff are more than accommodating and very friendly, nothing is a problem.
Is only a short drive to Matakana and beautiful beaches, nice to go back to the serenity after a day exploring.
Could not recommend this place enough.... We will definitely go back.

Such a lovely surprise that the baches as they call the units were so spacious and everything had been thought of. Spotlessly clean and the beds were amazing. Definitely recommend to either a couple of family and each unit had its own privacy. Such a beautiful setting and out weekend couldn't have been better. We will definitely come again.

I was very impressed with this stay, the units are situated in the middle of the vineyard so the outlook is lovely, there's even a pool. The units are a really good size and have been really well thought out, it was great to have a bathroom for each bedroom, and the kitchen area was perfect and had all we needed. A shame the weather wasn't better as it would have been lovely to use the large deck and bbq, but it had a fireplace inside and I could imagine escaping for a lovely weekend in the middle of winter here, I'll look forward to a return visit.

Fabulous, well appointed, tastefully decorated villas in a beautiful vineyard setting. Kids loved the pool, tennis court and spacious grassy areas. Other times they have enjoyed the kayaks and fishing. In the evening, it's so cosy having a gas fire and during the day there is a great indoor outdoor flow. It's unique and an absolute favourite place for us to holiday. All less than an hours drive from Auckland! All the staff are obliging and helpful and I can't rate this place highly enough, it's a real gem.
