We arrived later than we had anticipated but the hosts greeted us warmly and ensured we were settled in before bidding us goodnight.

Lovely place to stay among the kiwifruit vines. This cottage has everything you need and the added extra of a spa pool. Christine was really nice, bringing us fresh eggs, a bowl of strawberries and just picked avocados - just perfect.

Christine was very helpful, friendly and easy to communicate with. We enjoyed the spa and hearing the sound of wild kiwi at night. The place was pleasant to stay in with lots of thoughtful touches like fair trade chocolate and tea. A quiet, relaxing getaway. Recommended!

Thanks Catherine. I checked again and it definitely would have been a male Tui call but still sounds amazing... if we had wild kiwis around here the whole district would know about it and we could start a wild life park! But the Tuis were specially vocal and loud last evening. Sorry I forgot to check the dishes this time around! Lovely to meet you both :)

Christine's place is a nice Cottage in a beautiful and quiet orchard. Our stay was fabulous, and we enjoyed the SPA and the local fruits she has provided. Anytime again. Many thanks. Highly recommended.

It was a fitting finale of my long trip in NZ. We were so glad that we ended our holiday with the stay at the Kiwi Cottage. The cottage was clean and very comfortable. A few fruit trees were specially planted next to the cottage for guests to pluck them when they were ripe. We were lucky. The fruits were ready for our plucking.

Christine is awesome... Though the harvest of the kiwi fruits are completed but we still enjoyed a short trip around the kiwi farm. Christine hospitality is very warm and we love the stay with her. I would come back if I am back travelling in NZ...

I am French with a Kiwi husband and 3 beautiful children. I have lived in New Zealand 25 years now and I just want everyone to see how beautiful, friendly and amazing this country is. Plus we are so blessed to live in one of the most popular tourist area in the North Island, we have an organic kiwifruit orchard, we grow organic fruit and vegetables, I love to cook fresh healthy food, so why not share this experience with the rest of the world!!! When we do travel, we go back to France to visit my family, so it's great to meet people from other countries here at home :)
