“Unforgettable !”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 22 February 2014
I don't even know where to begin.

Scrolling a bit down the review page, you will soon realize that Willem & Carla have built something truly outstanding that everybody agrees on. We had the Rivendell suite, which is awesome in every way and features the largest bed we have ever slept on (bigger than California King Size !). We never had dinner in the same place (the dining room, the barbecue, the tower...) but each time was unique and delicious. Carla is a wonderful cook and Willem has quite a nose for wine-pairing.
Meeting them and talking over a nice meal and a good glass of wine or Port, in the fantastic surroundings of their house and country was just heavenly. It was our honeymoon and they made it very special.

Hope we see you in Paris, Carla and Willem !

Room Tip: Every room has something that makes it special but the Rivendell suite is definitely the most romantic.

“The Most Romantic Honeymoon Place on Earth? We think so )”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 April 2014
Having spent 2 years planning our wedding in New Zealand we wanted to find somewhere really special for our honeymoon night - Carla & Willem - and Manawa Ridge was everything we dreamt of and more.

The location of Manawa Ridge is amazing - the structure overall is incredible - and our room (The Shire Suite) was unique - all put together from Carla and Willem's imaginative use of materials - and Willem's incredible talent for building things.

If we had been close family members the welcome could not have been warmer - Carla and Willem made us feel so at home within minutes of our arrival - and were so genuinely excited that we had chosen their venue for our honeymoon night that we felt like the most special couple on the planet.

Having settled into our suite, enjoyed the champagne (part of our honeymoon package) in the private jacuzzi - in the private garden - with views into the distant hills we then joined Willem and Carla, plus another couple, for pre-dinner drinks - and a tour of the grounds - which included a visit to Willem's hand built, and very impressive, wine cellar.

This was followed by the most romantic, candle lit, dinner in the tower - with 360 degree views along with some fantastic home cooked food - much of which is grown on the premises.

It is difficult to express in words how wonderful our stay at Manawa Ridge was, if you are looking for somewhere for a special occasion,and can get to New Zealand, you will find it very difficult to find anywhere better.

Carla and Willem - thank you both so much for making our wedding night so memorable and special - we will never forget it.
