  • We loved our time here! It’s very convenient to get to the downtown area by car but you are remote so you can feel very relaxed. At night the stars in the sky are super visible which is quite a treat. The sheep friends nearby are super fun as well! Hoping we can come back sometime to spend more time here.

  • Great location and place, Kelly and her family always helping. The kids loved handfeeding the sheeps!

  • Beautiful bedding, lovely location. A real treat.

  • Kelly’s home was perfect! Went above and beyond expectation. A very short distance from Hobbiton and only an hour drive from Rotorua, very convenient location! The house is very clean, this is so important on air bnb! No detail went unnoticed, and you even get a fabulous view for sunset! Thank you so much!

    Kyla2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great amenities! Love the rustic cottage look! The views are stunning with sheep at the door steps. Kelly is a great host!

  • This place books up fast and it’s easy to understand why. The setting is stunning (the views sweeping and it lies within 15 minutes drive of both Hobbiton and Matamata); the property is private and immaculate; the price very reasonable and the owner very welcoming. Located at the end of a private driveway surrounded by paddocks with grazing sheep and cows, the cottage comes with a large deck with seating and fabulous views. The property is spotless, both inside and out, as well as tastefully decorated and comes with all mod cons including a dishwasher and washing machine; three bedrooms (two doubles and one with two singles); a smart bathroom with walk-in shower and a living room separated from the kitchen by a bar. The kitchen is stocked with all the basics (oil, vinegar, aluminium foil, tea, coffee, jams etc.) as well as extra eggs and two pieces of toast and milk. The washing machine came in very handy, as did the ironing board (even if we were on holiday). Kelly also recycles (separate bins provided) and provides provisions to feed the lambs in the surrounding paddock, wifi is fast, the TV is a large flat screen Sony and everything is quality. There’s also air conditioning and a generous BBQ. We chose the double bedroom facing the sunset in which to sleep and slept very well as both the bed was comfortable and road noise was non-existent. An absolute gem of a find with an owner to match. Well worth every penny... or dollar and excellent value for money. The perfect place to stay, especially if you want to visit Hobbiton which I also highly recommend.

  • Kelly is a fantastic host with a gorgeous space in a beautiful countryside setting.

  • The word “extraordinary” is not strong enough to describe our 2-night stay with Pauline and Robert! Hands down our favorite hosts on our 2.5 week honeymoon trip around New Zealand. We enjoyed great conversations with our hosts and we only wish our schedule had permitted a longer stay with them! They are so warm and welcoming and they have great senses of humor, we thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them. They also respected our privacy and gave us plenty of space. Their location is perfect for a quick and scenic drive to Hobbiton and the town of Matamata, and their recommendations for local restaurants and activities were spot on. Their home and property is beautiful and pristine, and the breakfasts Pauline made for us were hearty and delightful. The bed was very comfy, the bathroom was spacious, and the whole house is spotless. Not to mention the views from the bedroom, dining area, and outdoor sitting areas are breathtaking. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say that overall our experience was wonderful and we wholeheartedly recommend staying with Pauline and Robert on your next trip to this area!

    Sarah2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I enjoyed our one night stay at Pauline and Roberts lovely AirBnB. Pauline and Robert made us feel as if we were walking into a friend or family members home right away. Such a beautiful view from the property and very close to Hobbiton, which was perfect for us, as we did the evening banquet tour. Also was great for stargazing on a clear night, being that it’s in the country. We would DEFINITELY stay again if we ever come back to NZ. Pauline cooked us the most wonderful breakfast the next morning was well. Truly cannot day enough about how wonderful our experience was.

    Brady2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • What a time we had in Robert‘s and Pauline‘s home! It is located beautifully close to Matamata and really new and has a guest wing you will have all to yourself. It is very much a luxury accommodation, you have access to a library room and you are always welcome to join Robert and Pauline in the big lounge or sit outside stargazing or enjoying the sun or playing with their two dogs. The place was sparkling clean, the beds are super comfy and Pauline‘s breakfast is the best you can get with a lot of home grown fruits! Robert and Pauline both go out of their way to make you feel welcome and they shared a lot of local tips and insights (especially into Hobbiton which is just a stone‘s throw away) that we truly appreciated. Pauline also makes her own soap! Make sure to take a look into her shop and take home some souvenirs with you! We hope to be back soon! Thanks Pauline and Robert for this outstanding experience!

    Julia2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Robert and Pauline are wonderful hosts, and Highllyn is a find, so close to Matamata and surrounds. I was here for Hobbiton, and the place and welcome and breakfast were all great. Highly recommended.

    John2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A amazing place. We like here so much. Pauline and Robert are so nice. There are 8 cows and 2 dogs they are so lovely.We are lucky that we saw so bright moon and many shining stars. The breakfast is so good that we are so full. We had a good night there. Thanks a lot to Pauline and Robert.

    白雪2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very beautiful, the small farm has a lot of flowers, 8 cows, the room is clean and comfortable, the old couple of the landlord is very enthusiastic, and the galaxy can be seen in the yard at night, it is very beautiful.

    娅莉2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Clean, and comfortable, lovely house in a beautiful part of the world. Hospitable, friendly hosts.

    Elizabeth2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house is a few minutes drive from Hobbiton. The house is very beautiful and clean, and the host is very friendly. The next day Pauline made breakfast for us. The breakfast was very rich and the strawberries were grown as fruit salad. There are many toys. Because I live with the host, it is still suitable for older children. My family is 2 years old and I always feel afraid of getting noisy.

    ‘The Batch’ is located 10km from Matamata on a working horse farm. Great place to explore Hobbiton, or do a few bush walks in the Kaimai ranges. Furnished with a Queen bed,bathroom, self contained Kitchen, dinning and living area, with garden outlook. The Batch is very spacious and comfortable, separated from the main house.Best suited for a couple. If need be the couch can be pulled out as a double bed or there is a foam mattress we can set up as another bed.
    You will have lots of room to unwind, sit out on the little deck and listen to the birds. And if you feel like it go for a little walk around the farm, the horses will come up to the fence and say hello to you. We are quite happy to show you around and explain the nature of our business to you.
    We are 10km from Matamata town centre, so you need your own transport. Or pick up could be arranged at an extra cost. The Kaimai ranges are 20 min drive away with beautiful bush walks, Wairere falls would be the most popular one, or if you feel like a real workout you could climb Mt. Te Aroha with amazing views. There are also a few cycle tracks in the area and we are only 1 hour away from Rotorua or Tauranga. Also the airport is only a couple of hours away.
  • Lovely,quiet and spacious unit. Highly recommend.

    Narelle2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

    David2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great pleasure to stay in the cottage of Karin and John. The communication was great and both are very warm and loving people. The cottage is on a beautiful horse farm and is spacious and nicely furnished. The terrace is also very nice to sit on where one can listen to the birds. We enjoyed walking around the farm very much. The breakfast was delicious. It is an ideal place to visit Hobbiton or go for hikes in the beautiful landscape.

  • The only mistake you will make is to not book a stay here. One of the most beautiful and peaceful location I have been to. Amazing!!

  • Lovely accommodation, great views, quiet an peaceful away from the buzz of the city but only a short drive away to the closest towns. The bed was really comfortable, wished we'd added a night! Their cat Hunter was lovely and very cuddly.

    Debbie-Jo2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The scenery is much more beautiful and inspiring than the one in the picture. Above all, it was a very nice room and the excitement never stopped. In addition, there was a full range of cooking utensils, so it was not a problem to buy ingredients in the city before cooking. We recommend that you stay at least once if you have any errands around you! Also, because it's really on the country side, you don't have any radio waves so you can let go of your phone and relax.

    祐真2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Kay’s guest home is the perfect countryside getaway! The views are amazing and she had lots of thoughtful touches inside the home for us to enjoy. My only regret is not booking for longer. It’s only about 20 minutes from town and 5 minutes from Hobbiton. We will definitely be back!

    Sara2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • The place is amazing and the location is great, especially for those who want to do the Hobbiton tour. The sunset view is breathtaking; I would definitely recommend this place. Thank you!

There are hot pools on the edge of town, at least 3 golf courses in the near vicinity and walking tracks into the Kaimai Ranges close by. There is also the Maungatautiri nature reserve 30 minutes away.
  • A lovely peaceful spot in the countryside. Perfect for trips to Hobbiton (and the dinner we had in Matamata was great too!)

  • Glenn’s place is excellent and the hospitality was amazing. I had all my own bathroom room amenities which of course is always a big plus. The stay although short was very comfortable and clean and a tasty breakfast was provided. Another reason to stay at Glen’s place is the location, only a stones throw from the town centre where the isite, cafes, restaurants and bars are. No need for transport as only a short walk to everything. Please enjoy your stay as I most definitely did. Thank you.

    Darryn2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Glenn and Janet are wonderful hosts and really made us feel at home for our short but sweet 1 night at their place. Location wise it was perfect for our trip to Hobbiton, a very short walk away from the I-site. Our check in was easy as they greeted us on arrival. We were made to feel very welcome and given space to settle, however had some lovely chats with them over breakfast and in passing around the house. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable and the kettle in the room was a little bonus. A private toilet and shower was a great perk too. Glenn and Janet provided a beautiful breakfast spread which we greatly enjoyed and they were very accommodating with our check out arrangements. We loved our stay here and would definitely recommend to other guests :)

  • Home away from home! Glenn and Janet were amazing hosts, very friendly, and the room is lovely. The house is a few minutes walk from the i site to catch the Hobbiton bus, so ideally situated. I was made to feel very welcome. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Matamata. The small touches like snacks and tea/coffee facilities in the room, and a continental breakfast the next morning were also much appreciated!

I was thrilled to be able to stay in her wonderful home again - panoramic views of countryside from every window, beautifully decorated space with thoughtful amenities, and a lovely deck to enjoy in nice weather. This is one of my favorite Airbnbs I’ve ever stayed in and I can’t wait to go back!

  • Our stay here was great! The accommodation is really neat with lovely details. Everything is well thought of and the bed is just amazing. Look outside at night and gaze at the lovely starry sky. In the morning we were greeted by a bunch of cows. Wish we could've stayed longer. Only 10 minutes from the Hobbiton movie set. Can recommend to everyone

Consider it your boutique inspired home away from home with all essentials and a few extra goodies at your fingertips.

    The House of Hazel is located 1km South of the town centre, the Hobbiton bus departure point – known as the i-site / information centre and central business district. Heading further south we are a stones throw from Hobbiton Movie Set & Tours. Our accommodation is situated on the rear of a generously sized residential section and once you have turned off the road and down the driveway the rear of the section is private, quiet and nothing short of perfectly peaceful. Resident birdlife also reside in the same area on property and have been have cultivated through generations in our family. To the best of my knowledge they are running their own successful avian airbnb enterprise from their birdhouses, and run a strict no party policy, although are fairly vocal with their birdsong at dusk and dawn.
  • My boyfriend and I were looking for a nice, stylish place to stay in Matamata while we went to Hobbiton. I was surprised at how modern and stylish they made this space look from the outside as well as the inside! It’s really clean and they’ve utilized the box chalet space really well. Yes it’s a bit on the smaller side of space but it’s perfect for two people and they’ve arranged it to make the kitchen, the bedroom, and bathroom still feel roomy enough in its own way. We had a decent amount of luggage and we were able to manage just fine with the space we had! Melissa really thinks of everything you’ll need within the space and it was so nice to be able to do a load of laundry too! The space was only 9 miles away from Shire’s Rest where you start the tour for Hobbiton so it was super convenient. If you’re looking for a place to stay in Matamata, stay here! You’ll feel hip and comfortable at the same time!

    Yuri2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Melissa’s chalet. It’s very clean and very close to the main attraction around : Hobbiton. She gave us the address of a very nice restaurant in town also. Inside you will find some informations about the city and a Lord of the Rings Monopoly. She answered very quickly to all of our questions ! We highly recommend it !

    Sarah2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The communication was excellent, the facilities were great, had everything I needed including a washing machine and was walking distance to town. Will probably be back one day.

    Mick2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Really enjoyed my stay. Excellent communication by Melissa.

    Bill2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • The location is good, and the hobbit tour was close! It was unfortunate that it was a bit narrow to unfold two large carriers, but the space was very clean and the interior was pretty, so the two were comfortable. Melissa, the host, was also kind and I felt like she was still caring!

    Soyoung2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Melissa's place was great! It's a private little "house" with everything you need. Outstanding hospitality our whole stay. She picked us up from the bus station, gave us a lift to and from Hobbiton and offered a ride into town/bus stop when leaving. Highly recommend this place for anyone!

    Emil2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean , stylish and cosy space with everything you need :) thanks Melissa for being an excellent host and communication was great!

    Dillon2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Lucie2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Trish's place is wonderful, and she is an excellent host. It's super close to Matamata central and Hobbiton. We really enjoyed sitting in the covered porch area and looking out at the stars, and were excited to see cute animals around the farm. The *only* complaint I had was that we ran a little low on the hot water when I was washing my hair, but apart from that we had a perfect visit.

    Rupali2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Trish's. Super handy location to everywhere in Matamata, very easy to find as well. Small house but plenty of space for two people and very clean. The bed is very comfy. Lovely outdoor area to chill in, and we appreciated the breakfast offerings especially the fresh eggs! Would happily stay here again.

    Sus2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful private space, centrally located with tons of things to do.

  • This place might be my favorite so far on our trip. Nestled in the hills not far from Hobbiton we had an amazing view of the landscape. The shower was extraordinary, the ambiance of an old western/farm man cave was ideal, and the balcony where we could sit and enjoy the stars was very pleasant. We also really appreciated the local map for the short way to Hobbiton and Cambridge rather than how google would have taken us. Would definitively recommend!

  • Best Airbnb experience so far! The host is super friendly, he built this amazing house by himself and he even helped us fixed our camping van! The kids are lovely, they showed us around the farm and introduced the sheep, horses and cows to us. Highly recommend if you are looking for a quiet farm experience!

    Ada2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • My daughter and I stayed at the Man Cave loft . The loft was clean and beautifully set up, the bed super comfortable. The views from all areas of the property were amazing. We had a lovely dip in the pool and a lovely tour of the farm from the young hosts. So close to town, 15 minutes we were in Cambridge having dinner. Highly recommended.. Thank you.

    Carol2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Though we only stayed for one night, this place had everything we needed. Getting to Cambridge and Hobbiton was much easier than Google Maps tells you due to their local advice and hand drawn maps. They were very hospitable with us arriving early and through out our stay. The scenery is amazing as well as all the farm animals you will encounter. Say what’s up to Goose if you’re a cat person.

    Erin2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome spot. Nice to get off the beaten track. Peaceful. Wonderful rustic quirky place. Well stocked with kitchen stuff. Friendly hosts and animals.

  • Ezra‘s place is fantastic, it’s just beautiful and we really enjoyed staying for the night. Wish we could’ve stayed longer it’s so lovely. Highly recommended!

    Amanda2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing house right in the center. Ezra has great communication. The place was immaculate. Thoughtful touches. Had everything from board games, blankets and games laid out outside for kids to play and adults to enjoy a wine on the deck. Only thing maybe a washing machine for long stay people but in saying that was listed as not available so no drama. Will definitely be staying there next time when we head down to catch up with friends. Thanks again Ezra. Oh and the bed was so comfortable with great soft linen. Sparkling clean. :)

    Peaceful and quiet with fantastic rural views, no street lights here just stars! Closest BnB to Hobbiton! and less than an hours drive to Tauranga, Rotorua or Hamilton. About 1 1/2 hours to Waitomo Caves and only 35 minutes to Mystery Creek Events Centre. Bedroom with Queen size bed. The bathroom is a semi-ensuite located in our laundry but solely for the guests use, there is a door directly from the room. Sadly our property is not suitable for children.
    Our room has just had a complete make-over! Now slightly larger, fully insulated, double-glazed windows and a new shower. We are the closest BnB to Hobbiton Movie set in the world! Just over 2km away so you can walk if you want to. It is a very peaceful rural setting to sit and relax. You can enjoy your continental breakfast sitting on the deck if you wish. Lots to do in the area, Firth Tower Museum, Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari, Wairere Falls, Lake Karapiro etc
    We are on the farm next door to the Hobbiton Movie Set. It is very peaceful and quiet, NO street lights just stars. Sit on the deck for breakfast and take in the tranquility. We have 2 new family members! Pippa & Nigel are our new cats, very loving and playful. They are not allowed in the bedroom but will love to play with you outside if you want to.
  • We cannot thank Sheryl and Greg enough for their great hospitality. We often sat together and talked. There was fresh fruit and vegetables from the garden. We had delicious breakfast with homemade jam. Our room was super clean. Arrive and feel good. Sheryl gave us some very good tips for trips to not so crowded places. Best Air B&B experience. Many thanks again. Mic & Nicole

    Mirko2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sheryl and Greg were the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the view was fantastic.The added bonus was that Hobbiton was 2 minutes away. I wouldn’t hesitated to recommend this B/B

    Elizabeth2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sheryl's place was super lovely! The view was gorgeous, the bed was comfortable, and it was right down the road from Hobbiton. We also enjoyed getting to chat with Sheryl over breakfast, and she gaves us some great tips of things to do as we continued our travels

    Jennifer2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay! They view is stunning with the horses running around and the mountains in the back ground. Super close to hobbiton. The whole set up is really well done and Greg and Sheryl were both really friendly and hospitable. The extra little touches wwre really thoughtful and it's clear a lot of thought and care is taken to make sure the space is tip top!

    Laura2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely home is on top of a hill in beautiful farmland with horses and cows.The cottage was quiet, clean and comfy. Breakfast is provided with delicious homemade jams from their gardens. Very close to hobbiton! Highly recommend!

    Julie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sheryl and Greg were very accomodating and friendly hosts. Our room was very comfortable, fitted with a window looking out onto the gorgeous Hinuera valley. Would recommend having a car as this BnB is a little out of town (15min drive) and taxis are expensive (cost us $50NZD). Would highly recommend staying here!

    Zijing2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for accommodation if you are in the region. Although the host was kind enough to let us use the microwave to heat up some meals, the accommodation will be suited for self sustain travellers with own meals and who are just looking for a bed for the night, which was what we were! But do bring insect repellent, it is located in a farm and mosquitos are expacted. The host was very nice and did everything in her power to make our stay as conformable as she can. She also has 2 amazing dogs and a curious cat. Thank you. Will stay here again.

Their house is only a 15-20 minute drive from Hobbiton and is also very close to lots of places to eat in town (recommend the Indian food from Chips and Curry). We would love to stay again in the future!

To the best of my knowledge they are running their own successful avian airbnb enterprise from their birdhouses, and run a strict no party policy, although are fairly vocal with their birdsong at dusk and dawn.
  • Very good clear communication from hosts. Compact but well equipped freestanding unit a short drive from centre of Matamata. Very comfortable bed (I had a great sleep), good shower. Would happily use again.

  • This little gem hosted me & my 4&6 year old daughters for 2 nights. The space is small yet super homely with all the finer details that make life that much easier (scissor for craft, fine grater for my fresh ginger tea, earplugs, maps and a range of Hobbiton friendly entertainment) The softest towels and linens. You can tell Melissa cares about her guests comfort ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • Everything was just perfect, a very modern, comfy chalet with the kindest hosts you could wish for! Highly recommended!

    Melanie2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this place. Melissa was a great host. I saw her having a good chat to some other guests, but likewise she allowed us our space and privacy (our personal preference). There was excellent communication with all the information we could possibly require. Her tip of eating at Osteria was spot on, we loved it. The accommodation was cosy, stylish, very clean and well maintained. The ‘grounds’ are sweet too. My unit included an outside seating area which was appreciated. I would definitely stay again when in Matamata.

  • We had a great stay at Melissa's at very short notice. Incredible communication and a very well set up place. Thanks so much for your hospitality!

  • Nice small place but clean and cozy

    Roger2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Tiny chalet but very comfortable, very well fiited, a very convenient place for us to visit Hobbiton and Waitomo! Melissa is a great host! She feels concerned with her guests. She sees that everything goes well when you're staying at her place and she has very good tips for dinners in town. We highly appreciated the time we spent at Hazel House and would definitely recommend it.

  • Melissa was fabulous. We made a last minute booking the night before our arrival since we had to change our itinerary. Her little place had plenty of room for two people and a couch for a third person. The kitchen and bathroom were great. There was a clothes washer but we didn’t use it. It was so cute and close to town. She recommended Osteria Italian restaurant and it was delicious. Everything was beautiful. She actually has another unit that are exactly the same and right on the property. Outstanding service and value. Great for a Hobbiton tour stop. It was hot but she had air conditioning and a fan. Everything was great. Melissa went above and beyond. Great stay!

  • The first time I stayed in a camper van, the kids liked it and it was well equipped.

  • Jean was very enthusiastic. The day before I arrived, I volunteered to ask me when I would arrive, and told me how I could get the keys myself if I didn't get off work. The instructions are very detailed. Thinking that we need some cool fresh air, turn on the fans and open the vents in advance for us. Jean was very enthusiastic. The day before I arrived, She volunteered to ask me when I would arrive, and told me how I could get the keys myself if she was on work. The instructions are very detailed. Thinking that we need some cool fresh air, She turn on the fans and open the vents in advance for us. Prepare us with a bed that can sleep, which means we can relax immediately upon arrival. She sets up our beds ready for sleeping which means we can relax straight away when we arrive. In her letter, she said: No problem to bother me, or knock on my door when you arrive, I will be happy to help you. She said in her letter: no problem to ring me or when you arrive knock on my door I'm happy to help. When she came back from work, she came to our place again, saying once again that there was a problem and she could knock on her door or call her at any time. This is very helpful for tourists like us who do not speak good English. Thank you again for your warm hospitality.

  • Because we were going to the hobbit village early the next morning, we booked here, conveniently located 15 minutes from the shire restaurant. The rv is clean and tidy, and communication with the landlord is smooth. It's a cost-effective option

    Xiao Yao2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • The car parked in the landlord's yard is a very good experience, it is a very good experience, very warm, and the night sky is also very good. We arrived early in the morning and the landlord prepared cookies and coffee in advance.

    Alex2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks again Jean for a lovely spot to stay. It was so cosy, super clean and close to the town center which made getting about so easy. All the best for the future and hopefully we will stay again.

    Camellia Cottage is a pretty garden rustic B & B located minutes from Matamata and on the way to Hobbiton (9 minute drive). The cottage is set on our 25 acre property which is the home to pet sheep, cows, horses and cats. A true country experience.
    Camellia Cottage stands alone and has its own private verandah and garden. The sitting room accommodates a super king bed which can also be split into two singles where required. The second bedroom has two single beds. Continental breakfast provided.
  • We had a wonderful time in Matamata at Camellias Cottage! The space was well decorated and enjoyed our morning breakfast on the outdoor patio! Kids loved feeding the sheep and the horses! Jane made us feel like family! I shall recommend this place to friends!!

    Priyanka2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved everything about our stay with Jane. All the little thoughts and touches that went into the cottage. This included the decor, the snacks and even letting us visit with their animals! I would not hesitate to recommend Jane's place to future travellers and only regret we didn't stay longer!!!!

    Chris2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This little place was the most perfect cottage experience. My kids have not stopped talking about the animals and the atmosphere. At night we sat around and watched the shooting stars, light pollution is non existent here. We have been traveling around the north island doing one night stays in different parts of the country to maximize our experiences. My kids said it was their favorite place we’ve stayed so far. Including the one night we had at the Sheraton in Auckland. High praise indeed. The little cottage was charming, clean, and well stocked with little breakfast items. It was a real treat to meet the owner as well. Jane was so kind and generous. We were lucky to have her around as she shared her beautiful animals with us. My kids were able to feed the sheep and her cows. My daughter has seen her ideal lifestyle. She is quite an animal lover. My son said he felt like a real hobbit in the home. He’s 12 and just finished reading and watching the hobbit. It’s small but perfect. We were only minutes away from Hobbiton and the blue springs which was recommended by Jane. It was all beautiful. I highly recommend this place.

    Lucy2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was the cutest cottage!! Such a great place to stay, and Jane makes sure there’s plenty of fresh fruit, yogurt, toast, milk, tea, coffee, clean towels, etc. Everything you could need is provided, and the place is decorated and furnished wonderfully. Nice deck with chairs to enjoy morning coffee, beautifully manicured gardens - loved it :-)

    Jenni2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy, friendly haven of relaxation. We felt right at home! Hope to stay again in the future! Excellent garden!

    Mark2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Camellia Cottage is by far one of the best Air BnB's we've stayed at!! My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. It's so tranquil and peaceful with the sheep and horses right on your porch. The cottage itself is so idyllic and exactly like the photos!! Jane was such an amazing host. Thank you for the awesome stay!!

    Natasha2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage setting is very rural and beautiful. Jane had thought of everything in the cottage, there were so many nice touches. Jane was very friendly and welcoming also. It is a short drive to Hobbiton and to the town Matamata. We would highly recommend this place.

    Amy2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
