Awesome and unique place. Was exactly what I was looking for! Short drive to the city but feels like your a million miles away. John was a wonderful host and was more than helpful. Would definitely stay again in the future.

John is a super host! He is very welcoming and responsive. We had a great time at his unique designed EON cottage. The view and the ambience are just superb for a weekend escape. We will definitely come back and recommend it to our friends.

Thank you so much John, we had a fantastic stay!! Kids had a blast in their special attic. Thank you so much for such a warm welcome, it's all so nicely laid out in the house and so well supplied, it's really appreciated. Extra thanks for the Easter eggs, kids loved it! All very thoughtful. We really enjoyed our holidays in this fantastic location. Your house and hospitality made it extra extra special!

Blissful luxury break away! Our experience was similar to going to a luxury spa retreat - background music, candles, welcoming drinks/treats/condiments, fire and heating, modern new minimalist furnishings, it was an absolute blissful short break away for a couple. The location was stunning with forest views one side and sea views the other. Endless number of bush walks to take nearby (short or long), and a good cafe only a 1 min drive away. I can highly recommend staying here for 1 or 2 people! The house is VERY cool and immaculately presented. Simple, minimal, luxury - all you need for a break away.

Self employed creative designer. Health and well being has been pre-requisite through lifestyle choices which has kept me fit and enthusiastic about life. Outdoors enviromentalist with keen love hiking, sailing, mountain biking and wilderness living. Music yoga and meditation a constant.
I've designed and built my own homes using raw logs we horse logged from sustainable forests.

We live close enough to downtown Auckland City to enjoy a great concert, cosy club or fine dining yet live in a rural coastal wilderness location where we can fish and gather seafood.
Technology is important to me so we are fully connected to the world wide web and keep up with current developments.
We enjoy hosting people with a wide range of interests and can discuss such or leave guests to enjoy complete solititude.

Do good and do what makes your heart sing.
