Customer reviews and ratings

We absolutely loved the Top House. Certainly a holiday home we will return to. The House and location is absolutely amazing, plenty of space for the eight of us. The views are to die for, no matter where you are in the house. The house had everything we needed during our five night stay. Extreme luxury and what a wonderful place to relax and spend time with loved ones.

Exceeded expectations. Top quality and excellent attention to detail.It was the highlight of our North Island stay. To be able to enjoy the spectacular views everyday was a blessing [regardless of the weather]. Plenty of space for families - all needs were catered for. Both families found it extremely difficult to leave - we will definately return. Thank you for making this amazing house available.
