This was our favorite place to stay on our 21-day trip to North Island. The grounds and orchard are gorgeous! The cottage (we stayed at the Fig Tree Cottage) was charming and had everything we needed. The pictures don't do it justice.
We had a lot of fun getting to know Rusty and visited the pigs in the nearby pen. Our host, Diana, was very welcoming and cheery.
Two things that aren't in the description and were happy surprises were the free wifi and that the kitchen does have a hotplate. We didn't use the hotplate because we came prepared to grill everything. And the BBQ was clean (can't say that for another place we stayed). But had we wanted to boil pasta, or sauté vegetables, we could have. The wifi that we weren't expecting was speedy!
We had some wine and cheese on the deck, looking out over the beautiful orchard and wished we could have spent longer there.More
