Fodor's Review

In 2004 Ed and Ann Rompelberg constructed a modern Edwardian mansion 20 km (12 miles) from Cambridge, where luxury only begins with the grand views across Lake Karapiro and Maungatautiri Mountain. Two ground-floor suites open to private balconies and feature hydrotherapy spa showers, divine beds with goosedown duvets, chandeliers with dimmers, and leather easy chairs. But these are humble compared to the Versace Suite and Sir Tristram Room, which share the house's upper level. The Poolside Barn Loft is private and spacious. All guests may use a cozy lounge, pool, hot tub, and sauna. Hearty, home-cooked breakfasts are served in one of the delightfully appointed dining rooms, and Ann will cook dinner by arrangement.
