Absolutely magical place to stay. The apartment is beautiful (my wife didn't want to leave!). The owners are the friendliest people you will ever meet and the animals are adorable. Sunset was magnificent and I don't think I've ever come back from holiday feeling so refreshed. The pool is an unexpected bonus too! Just perfect.

We had an absolutely wonderful holiday at Kune Kune. The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. We loved to sit on the balcony and enjoy the peace and quiet, as well as the beautiful views across the valley. The weather was fantastic, so we made full use of the swimming pool. Best of all were the animals, especially the meerkats. The ownerRead mores were very friendly and helpful. Couldn't have been better. Hide
