Our home sits on a 2acre block on the banks of the Waikato River. The guest accommodation is separate to our home. A large private room with an ensuite. We are situated just a few minutes from the Waikato Expressway. Our central North Island location sees easy travel to and from Auckland Airport. We offer a real Kiwiana experience! Our village has a country pub, dairy, and a lovely little café. The property has beautiful views of Taupiri Mountain, Hakarimata Ranges and the Mighty Waikato River.
“A charming location on the river in a clean room with plenty of space and a new bathroom. We were surprised by entering via the garage but after having a good look around at a collection of cool antiques and rugby memorabilia we didn’t have a care. The room opens up to large lush lawns just outside the French doors and the setting is fantastic. Janene and Paul are very friendly and accommodating hosts. They left us wine and chocolate too!”

It is outstanding in all respects, we can't speak highly enough of the hosts and the cottage. We spent 4 weeks there during the Covid-19 level 4 lockdown, feeling safe, comfortable and welcome.

Hi and thanks for checking out our little piece of Hamilton gully paradise. Right on the edge of Ranfurly gully, our little apartment is close to everything, offering privacy, peace & a little luxury. Down a long drive, at the end of a cul de sac, you’ll be woken by native bird song, not traffic noise. Hamilton is fortunate to possess a handful of gullies (small valleys carved out by streams) where native birds thrive & bush quietly regenerates. These hidden gems are the green lungs of the city.
“Jeff's and Callie's guest house is the most beautiful place I stayed in during my 2 weeks holidays in New Zealend. I was so surprised how cozy and clean their place is, which me and my friend appreciated so much during our road trip. I would recommend to anyone and I personaly would be very happy to stay at their lovely place once I am in Hamilton again. Also both Jeff and Callie are very kind people. They welcomed us as friends, which made experience even more better. Thank you, Michaela & Dominica”
