5/5 Excellent

Home comfort with take your breath away views
Have just spent two nights at Moana Tau. Absolutely beautiful place to stay-easy access, clean, tidy, perfectly appointed kitchen/dining/lounge setting.. lots of home comforts(including snuggly blankets to curl up with), and has the most insanely incredible views of the coastline.. LOVE the personal touches on arrival of wee flowers tucked on the folded towels/flannels-too much to list, but from first arrvial to depature, this place ticks so many boxes! Bonus of our stay was meeting the cheeky wee resident weka(several times!)whilst enjoying the spa. Prompt communication with the host from the moment of enquiring-to departure this morning. We will definately be booking another stay! Would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a holiday/time spent in Ohope/surrounds..
