We were welcomed by the helpful staff and found the cottage ideal for a one night stopover. Great location, did an early morning walk down to the beach along the rainforest track. The heaters in each room and hot water bottles were very welcome.

The listing was accurate, however the photo's are extremely flattering and the reviews for this business seem to be mostly from their backpacker customers which is somewhat misleading as the overall standard of the private accommodation was much more modest than we would have expected. The property compared unfavourably with the other four homes we visited in New Zealand both in terms of price and standard. We feel the accommodation would better and more fairly listed as two separate businesses, as a Backpacker Hostel and Private Cabins and thus earn their feedback/listing status based upon their respective merits. Having Backpacked previously, expectations are generally low, so a 5 star rating is easily gained, but most certainly does not apply to the cabins. On the basis of my feeback above the accommodation is overpriced based upon the misleading feedback ratings and low comparable standards. Came away feeling short changed and misled.

We stayed in 2 cottages - 1 night Tui and 1 night Kowhai (due to unavailability). Both are in quite unique, isolated, quiet and relaxing location. The cottages are truely surrounded by rainforest and located on the territory adjacent to Paparoa national park. Pancake rocks are located at 5-10 min. driving distance and near Truman track leading to amazing beach. This is what we enjoyed a lot. Tui cottage however appeared to be extremely small in size (we kept our 2 bags in the car, as no space for them inside), kitchen facilities are not separated from the bedroom, furniture is a bit outdated, shower is just on the ground floor. Actually for this price in other NZ locations we got much better quality facilities than that. Still the benefit of rainforest location exceeded the disadvantages for us. With Kowhai cottage it was a bit more disappointing. When entering the cottage we have been met by unpleasant smell, which we firstly related to some cooking by previous guests, but, however, later realized that everyting in the house is saturated with this smell and for years already, and cannot be fixed by opening the doors and windows (mix of some spices, something old & etc.). Luckily we were to leave this place next day, otherwise had to change it. Yet the big balcony overseeing rainforest was still highly appreciated. In general it should be noted that both cottages are part of Te Nikau retreat, which is actually mostly oriented on backpackers and undemanding yangsters, they are oferring mostly rooms with shared facilities or beds in dorms, and only few cottages. Thus, do not expect premium quality, however as a budget accomodation for nature-lovers looking for escape it is probably OK. Had it been a bit more renovated we would have truely enjoyed the place too. The atmosphere at Te Nikau is very open, friendly and simple, sharing is extremely appreciated as usual for such places... (i.e. we tried to use temporarily big fridge in shared space - our products disappeared from this fridge, although part of them returned later and managers appologized for mistake :). They are oferring some quite interesting table games to enjoy in the evening.
