We stayed at Liz and Dave's beautiful house and felt welcomed like friends into their own. They are both very gracious hosts with much information about this little town filled with history. The home is beautiful, the food lovely and attention to detail exceptional. It was comfortable, clean, welcoming and well presented. A treat that we hope to repeat again... More

The location is good and neighborhood is quiet. We found this place very easily. The host, Dave and Liz, are very considerate and prepared a short video about Oamaru's history which is highly helpful for us to know this town better. The breakfast was supreme and Dave had collected our preference in advance which makes us feel like at home.

Thank you for your prompt comments on Oasis On Orwell B&B. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay in Oamaru visiting the Boulders at Moeraki, Bushy Beach and the Victorian Precinct. We also suggested the scenic route to Christchurch on such a sunny day is well worth the extra K's. More

Dave and Liz made their home available to us, out of town visitors, during a family illness and death. They made us welcome, made space for other relatives and even cooked a birthday cake which was a lovely celebration of something positive in a difficult time. The house is homely, warm and spacious and the food is simply outstanding. Dave... More

Dave and Liz welcomed us weary but curious travellers like we were family. Dave was ever so ready with maps, local horticulture sights, bicycle rentals with delivery and routes. The food at tea, chocolate treats and a hearty breakfast were all we needed. Please do not hesitate to order Liz' fish cakes in the morning menu. We spent 3 days... More
