Reviewed 26 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

My wife and I needed accommodation close to Kumeu for my sons wedding, and we could not have got it more right!

What would have to be the nicest pool house ever was to be our accommodation for 2 nights in rural splendour. The attention to detail was absolutely spot on even to the extent that when we mentioned how nice it was to see rhubarb in their garden, it was especially stewed for us the next day!

A huge bathroom , gigantic bed with the best of linens, lovely outside deck and cabana by the massive pool all set in a sculptured garden set the scene for a wonderful family reunion.

Jenny mentioned that it was almost always booked out - we are not surprised!
