Lovely place. Very comfortable, pretty and cozy. Nice to have fresh herbs from garden and lots of plums to eat. Great location after leaving Abel Tasman. Host Eric was helpful and welcoming. Only thing negative is that the lights outside room were on all night and shades didn’t darken enough. Not a huge deal. Otherwise it was wonderful.
