We had such a wonderful stay! The home was beautiful, and the perfect place to relax. Thank you Robyn and Dan for the hospitality and for making the stay so wonderful. From the easy to understand directions to the list of local recommendations for restaurants, Robyn and Dan went above and beyond. Really appreciate it and hope we can return in the future!

Robyn and Dan’s place is simply magical. Certainly a highlight of our NZ trip so far! We were so lucky to have two clear nights and the stars came out for us - so incredibly beautiful. Robyn and Dan were also really responsive to messages but gave us privacy, peace and quiet so we could enjoy the surrounds.

Wow - one of the best Airbnbs we have ever stayed. The space is immaculate from the decor to the amenities. Awake every day with a priceless view, take a soak in the tub under the stars, we didn’t want to leave. Robyn and Dan are extremely friendly hosts, they communicated proactively, but allowed us for our privacy as well. We hope to return here one day!

What an amazing night we had. Watching the stars in the hot tub. Going to sleep with the noise of the fire crackling. Absolutely amazing.

I just had to reach out and say a massive thank you for the incredible time I had at your Airbnb. The view was absolutely mind-blowing, with the night sky full of stars- it left me completely in awe. The way you've designed and setup the room is nothing short of amazing, creating an atmosphere that's truly special. And lets not even get started on that magical moment in the natural stone bathtub, soaking in warm water while gazing at the stars. Thank you for sharing this incredible space with travelers like us.
