What a blessing to visit this secluded haven for our 10th wedding anniversary! The journey there was like unfolding a most magnificent gift, the anticipation for what lies beyond the next bend continuously building. And then to arrive, so well met by Tam and Charles and their unbelievable abode.
There are trails to follow in the rain-forest with well appointed seating to take in the surroundings, two private outdoor baths/ spa where you feel so immersed in nature and decadence, and very generously apportioned rooms.
We could have contented ourselves just in our room (King Snug) - the facilities and comfort met every need and desire- restorative bed (high-praise from this pea-traumatised Princess!), kettle, beverage selection, toaster and cereal, mini fridge for own supplies, tv and dvd player, comfy armchairs, great high-pressure shower, and an outdoor setting with a BBQ.
There was also a shared kitchen/ dining/ chill area with BBQ, electric hot plates, microwave and a mini cooker and large fridge, so you could cook your own meals if you brought supplies (why didn't I check your actual website so I knew this!! Gah!! (URL HIDDEN) ). Next time we will do this as we would want to soak up as much of the space as we could. Of course, Whitianga is only a 10-15 minute drive away, so very easy to pop out for dinner or grab some things from the supermarket. & then you get to experience the joy of returning!
We spent most of our time peacefully reading and snoozing, which was just perfect for these two very tired parents of small wee beasties, so were able to happily return to our duties with a lighter heart. Thank you Tam and Charles!
