Amazing property. Our very favourite for the whole of our trip in New Zealand. The hosts are charming, informative, down to earth, entertaining (which is good for us- but they can be discreet as well). I cried when I saw our beautiful room. The views were to die for. I could even see the snow covered mountains from the loo. LOL Ultra clean, beautiful refurbished, bed is oh so comfortable, common areas are spacious and homely. The breakfast was more than we asked for and yummo. And let me say, the farewell shortbread ginger biscuits that are home made, were excellent. And my gluten free was catered to as well. A very relaxing and ultra special stay. Thank you. Lis

Stay 4 nights. Quiet place. Nice view. Welcoming host couple. Comfortable room & environment. Fabulous breakfast. (If TV to include international news would be perfect.) Overall, feel at home.
