The cottage was lovely. Better than expected with gorgeous views, a short stroll across the lawn to the main lodge deck gives you a beautiful view of the sunset. The cottage itself has everything you would need, really well appointed with yummy continental breakfast provided. Would definitely stay again 🙂

The views are stunning and we witnessed the most amazing sunset enjoying drinks on the deck. The breakfast was delicious and well presented. We also had a cheese platter included which was lovely.

We felt so fortunate to be able to stay with Toni & Sefton. Their property is absolutely beautiful with a really high-quality finish and the views were breathtaking. They were super helpful and dropped and collected us from the town so we could have a meal and a drink. It is rare to find such an outstanding Air BnB and I would recommend this place to everyone.

I cannot recommend this place enough, it's a must stay in Hamner Springs, such a lovely place and easy access with very nice touches that made us feel so welcome. Wish we could have stayed longer.
GEMMA – February 23
Best New Zealand experience so far. We have been welcomed so lovely and felt immediately like home. The house so nice and the view even better than on all pictures. Both owners are so communicative and interested. And their dogs and the cat an absolute highlight. Everything was so clean and having dinner on our own terrace with the view to the mountains down The Valley just unmatched. Thank you for having us and keep going like that.
