We needed a break from our busy life in Auckland and in all of the places we have stayed none have ever been so peaceful, and tranquil with the most stunning views, of lakes the hills and especially Bonnie and Susie's gardens.

We spent New Years Eve in New Zealand and we had opportunity to stay at Smoothwater Haven...that's amazing! The owners are really wonderful, and they made every effort to make us feel at home. The place is really lovely, with a breath-taking view on the lake. The rooms are excellent. Great experience.

We stayed with Bonnie and Susie for just one night between Christmas and New Year - we only wished it was longer. Stunning location, a house that is purpose built for hosting with a separate guest wing, and lovely hosts. Make sure you get a tour of the nut plantation from Bonnie, which includes seeing the beehives and hens!
