We wanted to experience a farm stay while traveling around NZ for our first time. After plenty of online research, we chose Kamahi Cottage due to it's quiet location and proximity to the Glowworm caves. Upon booking, Liz was in contact with us promptly to discuss our options for the stay and provided us sample menu choices for the duration...

We came to Kamahi Cottage with 2 young children. We were greeted on arrival with fresh baking and a warm welcome. Not that we'd travelled far to get there (only from Hamilton) but it was still a warm welcome and one that made us feel completely at ease. The cottage looks out over rolling farm scape which in the evening...

This bed and breakfast is phenomenal. It started our trip in the North Island, and made it that much more amazing. Liz is amazing, her cooking is amazing, the view from the cottage when you wake up in the morning is *breathtaking*. Liz gave us some extremely valuable recommendations for the day, which led us to exploring some fantastic areas...

Kamahi Cottage is not cheap but is worth every pound, yen or dollar you pay. If you are visiting that part of the world take the opportunity to stay, even if just for one night, like myself and my wife. The cottage and its setting are both very pretty. Everything in and around the cottage is of a very high...

Staying here was the highlight of the North Island for us. Liz is such a warm and gracious host, and waking up on that beautiful farm (we arrived late at night, which Liz was very accommodating about, so we didn't know what our surroundings were until we woke up the next day) was like waking up in a Disney movie....
