And, our children Daniel, Jacob and Samantha have enabled us, to ensure a stay with us at Gemini lodgings is family friendly.
We respect all our visitors requests; if you want complete privacy please let us know, or if you want us to help you organise your holiday we are on hand to assist. We are a bilingual family communicating in English or Mandarin.
Without doubt, this is the best Airbnb in NZ!!! Words cannot start to explain Joe and Cynthias property. From the moment we sent Joe a message, their service and warm hospitality has been absolutely amazing. The property is a true getaway and absolutely perfect for families. It’s super clean and tidy with every single amenity you can imagine. It’s spacious and extremely well thought out, and still so close to all shops and attractions. If 6 or 7 stars was an option... Joe and Cynthia would be the first in line for them! We genuinely thank you again for all you have done for us, we absolutely will be back for sure!!!

Joe and family were outstanding hosts. Such lovely people, we felt like family. The accomodation was top notch at 100%, and Joe made our stay 110%. The cottage was clean, had all we need for our stay with little touches on top which made it even more amazing. Even though there were other properties on the grounds the cottage was very private and so comfortable. Our toddlers had lots of fun roaming the grounds. The amenities were amazing, pool was a beautiful place to spend your afternoon and when you want a change of scenery, the lakefront is 10m from the pool and spa! Joe’s boat trip is a must do. Excellent day out with local knowledge and best of all it’s all customised to our group. Joe was very accommodating to our toddler’s needs and that made out trip that much more enjoyable. Thank you for the outstanding stay!
