A stunning place to stay, it's always been a dream to stay in a log cabin and this doesn't disappoint! We love the philosophy behind the building and using of the cabin, as well as the surrounding native bush. It was great to disconnect from the world and relax!

About your host, Janene

Janene's Photo

As avid travellers who love finding new and interesting corners of the earth when we travel, we have loved designing building and opening the retreat to our guests. Dave's love of woodwork and Janene's background in tourism in both Europe and NZ have created a dream that we love to share with others, "A little taste of luxury in a little slice of Paradise".
