We had an amazing stay thanks to the incredible owner. They have truly thought of everything to make your stay wonderful. I especially enjoyed the large tub outside with bubble bath and insect repelling candles. Each hut is private due to trees surrounding them. In addition there is a glow worm cave on their property!

Lovely little cabins tucked into unusual looking rocks. Very quiet, peaceful and secluded. We stayed 3 nights and everything was wonderful. LeAnn and her husband were very accessible and quickly handled any need. We loved the outside tub and covered porch. The cabin was spacious and comfortable. Highly recommend when in Takaka!

First Class
From arriving to leaving everything was first class. Host was so knowledgeable and gave us great ideas where to visit. Cleanest place we have ever stayed. The bed was very comfortable and the chalet was very well equipped. Will definitely stay here again. Wouldn't even bother looking anywhere else.
