Overall Guest Rating

We couldn't have asked for more caring or accomodating hosts! Sandra and Bruce made us feel right at home. We had a lovely evening making pottery and then a leisurely breakfast the next morning at which we were spoiled with lots of good cooking. Sandra and Bruce also took the time to give us some excellent recommendations for things to do in the area. Our one regret is that we could stay with them only one night ...

This was an opportunity to experience the real New Zealand. Our room was perfect, surrounded by decking and set in a beautiful woodland location. Add to this the home cooking and a recommendation on great boat trip on Abel Tasman; the result was a stay that was a special part of our wonderful visit to New Zealand.
