Leah and her Joe were very friendly and supportive. There was always a pleasant and friendly environment in the home. They made me feel very homely and comfortable.
I stayed for a long time the lovely and peaceful house of Joe and Leah. They were so kind and nice. That’s why, actually, i am not good at cooking but, they always gave some delicious foods as well as cared for me. Therefore, i have never travel around before came this house, but they took me on a trip. Just i wanna say, i can recommend for all of the people.
We had an amazing stay at their house! You guys were so helpful and lovely and Leahs dinners were so yummy!
Thank you so much we immediatly felt like home!

The hosts are so nice because they are kind,funny,peaceful.They always helped us.In addition,house were so cute,clean and comfortable.Thank you for my family,I want to go back there.I can recommend this house.
The first days of our 2 month New Zealand trip we'd spend at Leah's and Jo's home. Both warm-hearted, nice people gave us tips for our journey and made us feel like home. We made some music in the evening (Leah plays piano I play guitar) and just had a good time. If we'll come back to New Zealand we will visit them again.
Joe and Leah were very nice, helpful and caring! I did not cook well, and Leah always shared her delicious food with me. Also, they gave me lots of useful advices and treated me as a friend. A warm and touching stay. I felt like I was at home. Highly recommended!
Had a great stay with Leah and Joe! Such heart warming and kind people! Felt welcome from the very first second and enjoyed the atmosphere, the surroundings, lovely chats and hospitality - but also enough quietness and peace to recharge my batteries after a long flight. 100% recommended - if you enjoy a lovely family home feeling ~ Hope to see them again! ×××
Very kind and caring hosts
We spent a week in the lovely home of Leah and Joe who were very welcoming, kind and helpful. They definitely made us feel at home. We would not hesitate to recommend them as hosts.
