"An amazing few days spent in the most peaceful and beautiful place. A modern cottage with everything you need, surrounded by forest with the river at your doorstep. Stunning walks with an incredible energy. Fantastic hosts! Will definitely be back."

"We stayed for a night and definitely wished it was a bit longer. I don’t know how we sum it up! Firstly the host was amazing and was really helpful in terms of checking we were okay, good initial orientation information and generally really nice. The cottage itself was beautiful inside and out. There was heaps of special touches like the bug spray available which we needed when sitting outside in our private front grass area! Going down to the river was quite a thrill with the slightly steep climb - luckily the host had warned us before we arrived to bring good sneakers to conquer this. The riverside bath was also excellent, very relaxing. Overall a really peaceful night stay so would recommend if this is what you looking for. We will be back."

"Rose is just a great host and was super helpful and friendly to us during our stay there. The cottage is pretty awesome The loft bed is huge and comfy. The small wood burner is a great touch. The area is absolutely beautiful. I recommend everyone head down to the river and just chill out for a bit. We hope to be back soon."

"Popped over from Wellington for a wonderful weekend at Kaituna. A beautiful spot and lovely to have the warm fire to come back to after exploring Mitre Hutt Track. Thank you for sharing Rose and Dan!."

"Such a special place, so much love and work went into creating this little paradise. The private river access is truly unique and the outdoor bath was magical. The cottage was so comfortable and stylish with views of the ranges and so many extra little touches. We had everything we needed for a true off-grid experience to reconnect with nature and take a breather from our busy city lives. Would highly recommend, can’t wait to go back!
