  • Unbelievably beautiful

    "We arrived at the house and were speechless for several minutes because the views from inside are so breathtaking! We had been traveling for a few weeks and it was so great to relax and enjoy this place. We loved being able to cook our meals there, after a quick trip to the nearby store. There are many activities close by, like the hot water beach and swimming in the ocean. There were probably more things we could have done but we never wanted to leave. The accommodations were very comfortable. Seeing the sunrise each morning over the ocean and the stars at night right out of our bedroom window was amazing."

  • RONGOTAI - my favourite place in the world

    "Rongotai is my favourite spot on the planet. As a cosmopolitan child of the North, I had the luxury of growing up under Northland skies alongside East Coast beaches. Rongotai gives me the opportunity to be once again enchanted by both. The night skies, in particular, give me that sense of being totally encompassed by the immense expanse of the star studded sky, punctuated by the reliable blink of the Manganui Harbour entrance lighthouse (a sensation akin to night sailing). Another enchanting feature of Rongotai is the scope of panorama which includes views of the sun as it rises above the pastoral landscape - bucolic scenes of cattle on green hills - in the East and sets at dusk over the Manganui harbour entrance. Apart from the powerful and exquisite scenery I enjoy the minimalist beauty of the house, complete with Phillipe Starke fittings, which unobtrusively complements its surroundings. The sensation on arrival is one of simple surrender to and total immersion in nature at its very best. Alas for me its hard not to wax lyrical as Rongotai exemplifies the environment in all its magnificent splendour – there’s simply no place I’d rather be."

  • Exceeded all our expectations !

    "My husband and I stayed here for 3 weeks (Dec 2012 / Jan 2013) and will definitely return on our next visit to NZ. It was the perfect location for us ... an easy, 20 minute walk to the holiday park where our family have a caravan ... and a stunning, tranquil retreat to escape back to each evening. Our late evenings in the hot tub, admiring the starlit sky became a daily favourite. The owners went out of their way to make our stay memorable and as pleasant as possible. There is plenty to do in the area ... amazing walks / hikes, stunning beaches, national parks, boating, great wineries, good shopping ... something for everyone. I would thoroughly recommend this property to anyone visiting the area."

  • What a wonderful place!

    "This is our second time staying in this wonderful home. The accommodation is of an excellent standard and extremely comfortable. There are supplies in the cupboards with a free to use honour system and in fact it really feels like home. Our children didn't want to leave. The location is wonderful and the view is such a distraction that you need to drag yourself away to partake in the unlimited activities on offer in Queenstown. We will be back! Absolutely first rate."
