“Great weekend away – thank you for letting us share in your piece of paradise. Fantastic location and set-up for children. Beautiful weather all weekend. A lovely spot for a family get-together. Many thanks.” Kirsten and family (from Golden Bay, Wellington and Palmerston North) 13-15 June, 2014“Many thanks for a wonderful weekend. Loved Corru Gate – comfortable, warm, relaxed, clean, cosy. Just lovely.”

“Quiet countryside setting with lots of birdlife and animals. Ideal for a relaxing break and very close to the lovely Mapua area. Corru Gate is cosy, tastefully decorated and has a nice potbelly fire which we loved. Can’t wait to return sometime soon.”

“I liked the trampoline. I liked fishing too! I like skimboarding. I got a splinter. We loved the tree hut and sheep and paddocks and fruit. Yum. Corru Gate rules.”

“Thank you! Your home was a balm for the soul for us and our baby. Thank you for the beautiful peaceful home and all the great art work in every nook and cranny! We can’t wait to come and stay again – it was just magic!”

“What better an excuse to visit a beautiful part on NZ than to stay here at Corru Gate. We thoroughly enjoyed the sunshine and walks on the beach. It was a unique experience that your well-appointed home made even more special.”
J & T, Palmerston North.
“Words cannot describe what a refreshing pleasure it was to stay at Corru Gate. A wonderful relaxing hideaway for our honeymoon. We were looking for something to make us feel at home, comfy and cozy! Corru Gate was perfect!
Thank you Roger and Adele for helping us find our way and figure out where to go and what to do. The maps were a lifesaver – we could not have found our way without them. We’re sad to be leaving so soon – we were just getting comfortable and there is still so much to do and see here! Wonderful recommendations and so AWESOME to have internet access w/0 being nickel and dimed! You guys rock. Wish we had more time! We’ll definitely be back in 2015 for an anniversary. Much gratitude and appreciation! Thank you for sharing your lovely Homestay with us!”
Heather and Mike
“Just wanted to say thanks again for the accommodation last week. I can’t imagine why anyone chooses to stay in pokey soulless little motel / hotel units when there are places like yours available. You guys have created a place with wonderful atmosphere there at Corru Gate. A pity we couldn’t have stayed for longer. “ CS, Hawkes Bay“What a wonderful spot to spend time – comfortable, peaceful, VERY relaxing! Very much appreciate your sensitivity to and support for sustainable living. We enjoyed our visit with you and look forward to many more.
Cheers H+S, California.
“A wonderfully quiet, warm, comfortable retro-quirky bach. A wonderful place to retreat from the world, but only minutes from restaurants, shopping and beaches – a memorable few days.”
