We stayed June 16, 2011 not 2014. We booked our beds online then confirmed on the way to the location. After reading guide books we knew to ask about linens and pillows. The owner gave us excellent directions to her property. When we arrived, the owner learned we had never visited a backpacker before (my husband our 11 year old... More

Personality, quirky andffantastic views over Doubtless Bay from the main guest bedroom upstairs. 3 rooms all double 2 with own bathroom facilities one with a loo down the hall. The breakfast was excellent, homemade yogurt, fruit, lot's of different jam. Honey from local hives still on the comb. The owner is one of... More
