“Ātaahua Estate is a dream home in a relatively quiet area of NZ. It was spacious, with a heated pool, gym, tennis court, and immaculate grounds that included an orange and lemon tree that our kids loved. We were lucky enough to stay 2 weeks at the home immersing ourselves in the local area. The hosts of Ataahua were gracious at every turn, never making us feel overstretched asking for assistance. They jumped at every opportunity to provide for us with each request. I would highly recommend staying at the Estate not only because the home is beautiful and comfortable, but more importantly, because the owners were very service oriented. Coming from a world away that helped make us feel right at home..”
