Coral & Peter McLean, 15/03/2011

"Very quiet, peaceful, welcoming and generous hospitality from Miria & Taroi. They clearly enjoy people and enjoying sharing their life & culture with others. I love it's placed between the influences of the ocean & harbour, and the Whare has it's own feeling of calm. A delightful restorative retreat."

"Miria & Taroi, were the perfect hosts. Full of knowledge and eager to help in anyway. We felt very relaxed here. It's a the last day of our NZ holiday and we couldn't have been in a better place."

"Miria & Taroi are beautiful and heartful people. Their place was one of peace and tranquility - very restful, beautiful dreams. They are very generous with sharing their culture and making you feel part of their family. It was a shame we only stayed one night. Will be back - to say longer."

"We were made very welcome and found the accommodation very satisfactory indeed. It was a haven of peace in which we could chill out for the weekend. The ocean was about 100m from the house and was so warm. Miria and Taroi were very hospitable and we can truly say that at the end of our stay we felt we had known them forever. We will be returning in March and on other future occasions too."
