What a spot, just fabulous and lovely hosts. Will be back. Best ever lemon meringue pie 10/10.

Fourth time at Nokomai. Excellent meals and good to meet a diverse group of people around the dining table. Will be back next year, and hopefully many years thereafter.

Fantastic week with great friends. The food was outstanding. Thanks to you all, including the fishing guides.

Andrew, Sydney Australia

Another great story and not the last. The cottages are so well designed and thoughtfully appointed. The best however, is the hospitality. The fishing was a treat as usual, so the entire stay was terrific. We’ll see you again soon.

Without a doubt the most wonderful place I’ve ever stayed. Fishing wonderful, best food imaginable, everything superb. If we stay healthy and work hard we may just make it back!

Nick and Janice, Alberta Canada

Thank you very much for looking after me so well. Another marvelous week in a very special place. Unfortunately, Daryl's exercise and weight loss program could never compete with Ann and Louise's superb cooking.
