    Absolutely stunning location and amazing accommodation. Even though it was winter, we spent most of our time outside by the fire or in the hot tub.

    One of the best glamping experiences I have had. I was very impressed with the quietness and tranquillity of the countryside setting. One of the best couples experiences I have had in a long time. I will be booking again.

    Lovely spot. Only about twenty minutes off State Highway Three. Camping with all the luxury comforts, even a heat pump and electric blanket. Beautiful linen on the bed, very comfy. Rustic kitchen and bathroom, but all you need and very clean. Awesome hot tub and fire to sit by. Hosts were great. We will definitely stay again.

    The location was amazing. Not only did it have stunning views, but all the little touches from the host made it a treat. Things like having marshmallows and pokers to toast them were what made it extra special.

    Really enjoyed our time at Peeks of Pirongia. Beautiful location where you can enjoy the calmness of the countryside while also being close to townships and activities. Nights were spent soaking in the spa and roasting marshmallows on the fireplace before wrapping up inside the cozy safari tent. Only regret was that I should have booked more dates!
