"Thank you Craig & Jess for the warm hospitality! We have been to several B&B's and I must say nothing matches up! Super, extremely thoughtful gestures - sumptious & glorious food prepared, plus lovely surprise of two Christmas gifts for my children! Indeed an unforgettable experience. Gonna miss the gorgeous children Paige, Piper & Oakley and the sweetest friendliest golden retriever Obie and all the animals. God Bless your family."

"Dear Craig and Jessie, we wanted to thank you very much for planning the trip to New Zealand for Grace, Baby Evaa and I. It was amazing and exceeded our expectations! We had a wonderful time and were very pleased with the accommodations. Underhill Valley and Moonlight Acres was mind blowing. We appreciate all the effort to get us to all the lovely destinations. It was a great 9-10 days. We think that the private and small group tours were the best way to go.
All in all, it was the trip of our dreams and we would happily use your services again in the future, (The Real New Zealand Experience indeed)! We loved every minute of our trip and can't wait to plan another in the future. Please extend our thanks to all those involved in this tour. "

"The Real New Zealand Experience is exactly that and more than we could have hoped for! I was nervous about traveling without my husband and with my daughter, so far from home in the US. But Jessie and Craig made our experience unforgettable, stress-free and comfortable! We stayed at Moonlight Acres for 7 nights and honestly, didn’t want to leave. The grounds and animals at their place were completely delightful! Jessie went above beyond, providing yummy food and snacks and even NZ souvenirs. (Hand-dipped chocolate strawberries, too!!!) Craig was such a courteous driver and took us around to all our activities which Jessie had set up perfectly!! What an adventure we had, and we loved seeing so much of beautiful New Zealand. Underhill Valley is an unforgettable experience and also highly recommended—just amazing. We had a seamless and completely enjoyable vacation—better than we had hoped for—and mostly due to the excellent service provided by Craig and Jessie and The Real New Zealand Experience!"

"Definitely high recommend this place! Around 15 mins drive from Hamilton, on the way to Raglan, this place just has everything we want it. Great place to chill out, away from the city. Just enjoy the bird songs. The breakfast is sensational. I am feeling in love with the place:). Also, Jessie and her family are awesome!"

"We adored Underhill and would definitely visit again in the future, its so cosy and warm and make you feel like you're in another lifetime, the farm and family are so lovely and the cave is just gorgeous."
"Best place ever, provides an experience like no where else, peace and tranquility, birds singing and fluttering around, romantic candlelight evenings, bathing in under the stars, cosy and warm, waking up to a magical vista of the pond, trees and wildlife... so amazing... will definitely be back!"
