Kari greeted us at the airport and we followed her in our rental car to the beautiful Pencarrow. We took pictures even before going inside! The garden is beautiful; the view of Lake Wakatipu and the mountain range is magnificent. Once inside, we chose our rooms and found a thoughtful note, home baking, candies...and gifts waiting for us. The rooms... More

Traveling with another couple we both felt that Bill and Kari provided us with information that enabled us to get the most... More

The rooms are modern and elegant, plus a lovely common room as well. Bill and Kari go out of their way to make every guest feel special, and on... More

I write this after 11 years because I'm not sure you could provide reviews back then but I just started and had to go back and give a plug for Pencarrow. In 2002 (I had to put a date below so I used November, which is when we went) we stayed here on our Honeymoon. The place was so fantastic.... More

I started by e-mailing owners Kari and Bill Moers and from the get go, their reception was... More

There really in no need to add to all the lovely comments made previously about Pencarrow and our incredible hosts, Bill and Kari. All true to the last detail.
