  • Oak Hill Gang

    "Our group of eight (four couples) were warmly greeted by Ann after a beautiful welcome drive down the high green hedge lined path leading to a home I can only describe as an idyllic paradise! We pulled up to a home whose porch was surrounded by beautiful flowers while to our left was a tree covered area with a koi pond and a trellis that called us to see the other side of this gorgeous "secret garden". The grounds of several acres is well landscaped with numerous fruit trees. We enjoyed sitting on the back porch and taking in the surrounding beauty. Whether one looked out from the spacious kitchen, or from each of the four Bedrooms windows, we knew we would treasure this experience forever. Accommodations: Excellent. (Bed, linens). View: Excellent. Location: Excellent- country/quiet yet close to sightseeing & activities. Recommend:Highly."

  • 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."

  • Like staying at a friend's house

    "I happily recommend this modern, clean and well-equipped property. It felt like I had taken over a friend's apartment for a week, because everything you could want in a vacation rental is here. Good computer connection, well equiped kitchen with all the extras provided to make a good meal (spices, flour, oil, etc.), comfortable bed, roomy shower. Very nice outdoor area too, with barbeque and outdoor table set. Excellent and friendly communications with the owner. A short walk to the bus into central Auckland (no transfers required, about 1 hour), or else bus and ferry. Howich itself a nice little village with decent restaurants, and a supermarket less than five minutes walk away."

  • 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."
