What guests have to say about their stay ...
Don - Woolston, Shropshire, UK
"We came here from the UK seeking a comfortable location for our amateur radio "expedition". We were not disppointed. Excellent accommodation for our team of seven, a convenient hill behind for our antennas, and a helpful, supportive host. Two weeks in a peaceful and beautiful spot - and apart from radio, an opportunity to play tourists on this fascinating island and to be welcomed universally by the islanders."
IIlona & Wolf - Mackenrodt, Germany
"People, landscape, accommodation SUPERB!"
Gianfranco & Adriana - Italy

Brett - Taranaki, NZ
"The Hideaway is a very special place and a treasure to have. It has everything that anyone would need when away from home. The fishing trip was unbelievable and I hope it can stay that way in years to come. Thanks to the community for the most delicious dishes of seafood I have ever eaten! I am truly grateful for this entire experience."

Rick & Liz - Whangarei, NZ
"Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay at Kāingaroa. The hosts gave us such a warm welcome when we arrived. Everyone we met was the same. As promised we got our paua, crayfish, hapuka and blue cod. (Even caught a couple of cod off the wharf!!) We explored the whole island by car- it's such a beautiful place. I am sure we will be back."
