A Few Recent Reviews and Testimonials by our Guests

Stefan (Chile) - 6 January 2017:

Dear Bill & Marilyn, This was by far one of the best experiences of our lives. Your home, the environment, the good vibes and the amazing energy that you two have made us fall in love with New Zealand, and with this part of the country. You two are magical! I wish we could stay longer and do more stuff together! Like picking some fruits, help you out with the market sales, organise the barn or even go for a walk early in the morning with Maya by our side. I am sure we will meet again! Either in Chile, driving south to Tierra del Fuego, or back here in this beautiful place we like to call HOME from now on. Thank you for opening your house to us, and specially your hearts. You are the most amazing couple and we only wish to get to be like you guys in the future. We leave this house with an amazing warm feeling inside and with two new and most wonderful friends! Les dejo un abrazo muy grande, mucho amor y y buenas energias. Gracias de corazon.

Sole (Argentina) - 6 January 2017:

La cabaña es muy linda, espaciosa con baño amplio, un dormitorio con cama comoda y grande y una cocina equipada unida a una salita de estar comedor donde puede utilizarse otra cama de una plaza. El lugar es increible! Rodeado de naturaleza y lugares fantasticos para conocer.

Lo mejor de todo: Bill y Marylin. Son una pareja encantadora y acogedora, dispuestos a ayudarte en lo que sea y hacerte sentir en casa, nos llevamos dos nuevos amigos ademas de un recuerdo maravilloso de esos dias de las vacaciones. Nos hubiesemos quedado mas tiempo si hubiesemos sabido lo lindo que iba a ser quedarse con ellos.

Tienen una piscina calefaccionada increible! Y un jacuzzi al aire libre con una vista de postal hacia el campo.

Bill & Lee (Auckland) - 10 July 2016:

What can we say about your patch of paradise? Thank you for your creative passion that you share with all who stay here. We have certainly felt blessed, peaceful and relaxed. We enjoyed walking with Maya through the orchards of fruits and nuts. Rammed Earth Apartment very comfortable. Everything one could need. Bed so comfortable we slept in till 10am. A neat place to spend Bill's 75th birthday. He really enjoyed his massage. A very special experience, many thanks.

Evelyn (Auckland) - 8 December 2015:

Thank you so much, Marilyn and Bill, for a wonderful, exciting, fascinating experience. This has been a true privilege for me to have the opportunity of sharing a marvellous 3 days with you both (not forgetting Maya). Your hospitality and generosity has been tremendous. I will never forget such wonderful people. I truly believe I was guided to this wonderful place to meet you both. It has been like a home away from home and it was a pleasure to be here. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, and I'm planning a return visit already. Arohanui mo ake ake, Evelyn

Mark (Wellington) - 1 November 2015:

Kia ora, Marilyn and Bill. Thank you!! Tikapa Moana is something special and it very much lived up to my expectations (and more). Looking forward to seeing you again and enjoying the peace and tranquility of this place in the not too distant future. PS: Watching the Rugby World Cup final at 5:00am together was truly excellent!

Sonia (Papakura) - 15 October 2015:

Wow! What a truly wonderful experience! Just what I needed and was longing for. From the warm welcome by Bill & guided tour to the lovely, relaxed surroundings ... and feeling included as a guest (without living in each other's pockets). The clean, green environment is very relaxing, peaceful and calm ... very conducive to the treatments offered, which I also thoroughly enjoyed. I had all of the treatments on offer, but the Watsu was my favourite ... being a water baby and never having had this before, I absolutely loved it! Having unlimited use of the spa was also a bonus! Thank you Marilyn & Bill for your wonderful hospitality and warmth. I will always remember my time here. Arohanui.

KAAT Trust/ Te Reo Rarotonga BECC (Cook Islands/Auckland)- 10/10/15:

Meitaki Mata/Fakaaue lahi/Salamat ... Huge thank you, Marilyn, Bill and Maya ...          We shared so much during our leadership retreat. A true blessing to be here together. Our work schedule went out the window, but the work we completed was massive. The time we have all shared was memorable. During our journey we have been inspired to continue & support the vision & dreams we are yet to achieve. We return re-energised, rejuvenated to lead more positively. May you continue to be blessed to help others to help themselves!   Kia Manuia, Naama, Naomi, Tony & Fisi
