Kim’s place was just fantastic - beautifully appointed, great location and a lovely warm fire to boot. It was a perfect spot to spend a weekend away, and I would definitely recommend. ☺️

Had a lovely couple of nights in Dara cottage. Well equipped cottage with good disabled facilities. Friendly, helpful owner. Lovely clean cottage, enjoyed our breakfast especially the eggs from the hens that visited us. Great position for touring the wineries.

Dara Cottage is a quiet and relaxing place with a great view of the surrounding grape vines. The cottage was extremely clean and well-stocked, with fresh eggs and bacon for us to enjoy for breakfast! The host, Kim is very knowledgeable of the area and came over to welcome us when we arrived. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend!

Beautiful location, ideal distance from the village (not too far, not too close), feels super private and is one of the most restful places / houses I’ve stayed in. Has that calming quality of a rural cottage but with all the benefits of a modern home, including decent water pressure, which is hard to find in rural NZ. Kim and Gordana were perfect hosts and made us feel incredibly welcome and comfortable, and offered great recommendations for what to see in the area. 100/10, would love to visit again.

Dara Cottage was a serene and relaxing experience for myself and my partner. Our expectations were exceeded upon arrival to personal touches evidencing thoughtful hosts. The cottage was next level clean and fresh, well stocked, and had a range of entertainment options. The hosts were also lovely and personable, coming over to welcome us in person and also gave us a lift into town the next day. We were really happy with our experience and recommend to anyone needing a relaxing space away.

A beautiful cabin in the middle of a vineyard. The hosts are lovely, make you feel very welcome. There attention to detail and the 'little things' really make the stay. Waking up in the morning with chickens wandering around the backyard with the provided breakfast is very homely. Our son loved escaping to the loft to have his own space. A wonderful winter stay, can't wait to try it out in summer. You can walk into the main square in 30 mins at a medium pace. Lovely and quiet, only the birds singing and the rooster will wake you up in the morning :) A great way to start the day!
