“We had an awesome stay with Tim and Trish - the hospitality was top notch and their place was an absolute bargain - I'd normally expect to pay about double for the standard of accommodation and hospitality. Well recommended for anyone coming in or out of Auckland or for visiting Hampton Downs (about 15 minutes away and a real easy drive).”
