My husband and I thouroughly enjoyed our stay with Julie and Wayne! Julie and Wayne are genuinely passionate about New Zealand, and they are incredibly knowledgeable about the country. They happily answered any questions we had and shared helpful advice with us. Julie even helped my husband find the right settings on his camera for nighttime shooting. Their house is beautifully designed with breathtaking views of Mt. Ngauruhoe. Our room and bathroom were located in their own wing of the house and extremely clean. Located about 30 minutes from Tongariro Crossing. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. We highly recommend staying with Julie and Wayne!

Julie and Wayne are warm and welcoming. They were our first hosts in New Zealand and felt like old friends after 2 nights. The bed was comfy, and their home is lovely with amazing views. Stay here if you can!

Julie and Wayne are two of the loveliest people we have ever met. So hospitable, helpful and easy to talk to. Even Rascal is one of the friendliest cats we've met! Breakfast is fresh and generous, and I loved the wide tea selection. The house is absolutely stunning, and the bed very comfortable. We loved everything about our stay, and would gladly recommend Julie and Wayne's place to all.

A lovely place to stay just out of town where you can get something to eat and organise your leisure time. Julie did us a lovely breakfast and could not have been more helpful.
