My husband and I spent a couple of nights here during our Honeymoon traveling through New Zealand. Both of us would have been content to stay at Kamahi Cottage forever. Everything about that place is perfect, adorable and comfortable. The front porch was our favorite. We loved sitting in the hammock swings, drinking gin and tonics (made with a lemon picked fresh off of Liz's lemon tree, of course), listening to the birds sing and Evan playing the bagpipes, and admiring the incredible views.

Liz is a wonderful cook (try the lemon pancakes--seriously!). She will either bring the meal to the cottage if you want a more intimate or private meal, or you are free to join her and Evan in their house. They are very welcoming and accommodating. Out of all 5 places we stayed across New Zealand, this was our favorite.

We were in awe with the Kamahi Cottage and once we got there we knew that just one night wouldn’t be enough. We realized we were only leaving back to Rotorua (away from the cottage the next day) for a Polynesian spa and when it came down to either that or staying an extra night at the cottage we couldn’t choose the spa anymore. She arranged the extra night for us without a problem. Elisabeth’s food was incredibly delicious, her cottage felt so warm and welcoming, her small details like her freshly baked treats for us and information booklet were so appreciated, and simply what could have been enough - the property was beautiful. The views were breathtaking! Elisabeth welcomed us into her home and her garden and it was a truly special experience we will never forget! Would've loved to stay there even longer. I would highly highly recommend staying here if you ever have the opportunity.

Room Tip: The cottage is for one family of up to four, or one couple.

Everything about this cottage, the main house, the gardens and beyond to the pastures speaks of impeccable attention to detail - right down to the home made plum schnapps! We would go back in a heat beat. Any future adventure to NZ will include a side trip to this cozy home away from home. Whether chatting with Liz about NZ, the world or politics or just curling up on the comfy couch with the cozy wool throw a book and a glass of wine this escape takes the prize.

Room Tip: The cottage provides a perfect escape for a couple

We stayed at Kamahi for two nights and we really enjoyed our stay. The cottage is cozy and gives homey feeling. The view is amazing and the breakfast is delicious. Their hospitality is exceptional. Would definitely recommend this place for those visiting Otorohanga/Waitomo region.

We had a lovely night in the comfort of the secluded Kamahi Cottage. Liz has done a great job of thinking of all the finer details. The location is beautiful overlooking the rolling hills, and the freshly delivered breakfast was delicious, not to mention the chocolate treats awaiting us on arrival! We also really appreciated the complimentary bubbles to celebrate our honeymoon, very kind. ‎It's great to know the efforts the family have gone to to make the cottage as green/eco-friendly as possible too. Highly recommended for a comfortable and romantic getaway.
