Cosy house (if not a bit dated), in a great location. Easy stay with good communication and hospitality from the hosts.

Response from Waitomo Big Bird B&B / Petting Farm:
Thanks for your help and feedback. The people the day before left the beers in the fridge - so thought you might appreciate them in the hot weather....not thinking to check the expiry. Yes, newly purchased and taken over just before Christmas, so upgrade planned over the next few months. New Carpet ordered for 20th Feb. $50 per adult is normal in this area for any accommodation let alone a complete private house option in Waitomo. AirBnB fees of course are added to the cost.

I love this property! It’s close to the Waitomo caving activities. Huhu cafe, the best restaurant in town, is just across the street. The owner is very accommodating; she lets us check in earlier during our stay. I’ll choose this place again when I visit next time.
