Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

Positioned with views of the countryside and also the pool deck, this room is both quiet and self contained for you to enjoy. We welcome one and all to our "sanctuary" where you can relax, reflect and reinvigorate yourselves for the day ahead. The rural life is all around us yet you are only 5 minutes drive away from the centre of Cambridge. It's central to many NZ attractions...Lake Karapiro (rowing), Hobbiton (Lord Of The Rings), Avantidrome (cycling), Waitomo Caves,The Arts and much more.
