Placed in a peaceful location though not far from Richmond center. Very convenient for visiting northern south island national parks. Very warm welcome by Jenny and Barry. Room tidy and cozy. Superb breakfast. Enjoyed our stay very much.

They did not overwhelm us with information but listened to our thoughts and advised us accordingly. We had the downstairs bedroom with ensuite. It was a large and very comfortable bedroom with good... More

Stayed for three nights with my daughters. Our hosts were very kind and their knowledge of the area was of great help for us. We had a great stay! The house is located in a quiet area but with walking distance to both the town centre and the tracks.

Big thank you to our host couple Jenny and Barry! We stayed for 1 night and it really was very comfortable and we enjoyed the guestroom with an ensuite bathroom. Very tasteful breakfast and when we arrived they treated us to a nice cup of tea and chat. Bo and Evy Engberg Miami Beach, Florida, USA
