....... we thoroughly enjoyed our time at Waterfall Lodge and really appreciated the personal effort you went to, to make sure that our stay with baby Olivia was very comfortable.
We found the cottage simple and elegant with everything that we needed. The pizza oven was definitely a highlight!
The ability to stroll around the farm and experience the tranquil countryside was wonderful and really allowed us to unwind. Livvy is only very young, but she really enjoyed the walk and the farm animals too :)
We don`t come to Auckland on holidays often but would love to visit again one day. We`ve meanwhile recommended your farmstay to our friends.
Thank you again for letting us stay in your lovely cottage
