5/5 Excellent

Great spot, retro comfy bach
House is private, great parking, amazing location very close to all the Waitomo sights. Host was so helpful, tour of bird farm so fun. Only suggestion would be some updated lounge furniture, recliners didn't work, some seats uncomfortable. But for a stunning, well priced weekend checking out the glowworm caves you can't go wrong here!

4/5 Good

Was all good, very convenient to everything , will stay here again when we return for the black abyss

4/5 Good

Great stay, great property
Great location for visiting Waitomo. Property really clean, comfortable and private. Added bonus of enjoying a wonderful sunset and then some stargazing from the backyard.
Stayed 2 nights in Jan 2021

5/5 Excellent

Great brirf stay
Lovely medium sized house that is at the center of the Waitomo area and very easy to find! Everything was as described and the unit was spotlesly clean. The house is quite old but that wasn't important for us and overall it is highly recommened from us.

5/5 Excellent

Weekend at Waitomo
Very nice property, everything you need is there. Comfortable beds and two bathrooms is a plus. Lovely breakfast provided by Ann and complimentary visit to Petting Farm was a hit, especially for our animal mad daughter. It is also walking distance to village. Would stay again and recommend to others
