    Molly and Josh - Dec, 2017

  • We needed time to think and discuss some important life decisions and “Slightly Foxed” ironically helped clear our minds! We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay and would love to return one day. So peaceful listening to Tuis, looking into the bush and beyond, enjoying a glass of wonderful Waiheke wine. May your little “Huka” bring you many years of happiness…Thank you for sharing.
