"Absolutely perfect!! My new wife and I wish to say a HUGE thanks to Reid and Beth for their amazing venue, their amazing service and just the whole personal way that they looked after us, and out for us. Nothing was too difficult. Beth called and organised fingernail repair for my wife the day before the wedding, and both of them were just wonderful to us the whole time we were there. The venue itself, what can I say, it was stunning. The grounds are beautiful, the barn is glorious and the recently renovated home-stay was a breath of fresh air for us and our family to stay in. We cannot recommend Tarureka Estate any more strongly. Fabulous. Thanks so much, guys!" - David Williams
