We arrived about 30 minutes later than expected, and Liz was right there to greet us and make us feel at home. She was very accommodating regarding the timing of our meals, and...

I'm so glad I managed to make that "flat white" coffee to your satisfaction. (New Zealand does claim it as a Kiwi invention!) ...it was a real pleasure to have you both stay. Thank you very much for your generous feedback.

Kamahi Cottage lives up to its 5 star farm stay rating, if I had the choice to choose 6 stars i would. It was definitely my favourite place to stay in our 2 weeks travelling through New Zealand. The food was fantastic and Liz catered to my dietary needs with tasty and delicious choices. The gardens are just gorgeous, we...

Liz and Evan have provided a wonderful place to sit back, relax and enjoy New Zealand.
