"My partner and I had the most amazing experience here last night. It was even better than I thought it would be and my expectations were pretty high! Everything was absolutely perfect, and the outdoor baths were definitely something to remember. My skin has never felt better after a bath!
Thank you Emily and Ben for an amazing escape, cannot wait to come back." - Arlena from Otorohanga
"Where to begin! This was the perfect place to start our adventure across New Zealand. It is such a beautiful and unique glamping experience in an absolute phenomenal location. The location is like nothing else, and I don’t think any Airbnb review can do it justice. We only got to meet Emily, but what an awesome host! Very welcoming and hospitable and went above and beyond for our short little stay. The details and special touches of this place are perfect. From the baths and s’mores to the fresh, warm, homemade bread, there is nothing to fault. Will definitely be, and already have been, telling everyone about this awesome experience. Will most definitely be back!" - Nick from Sydney
