What a beautiful spectacular location. By far the best holiday home I have ever experienced in NZ. The place has all you need, fully equipped kitchen, great lounge area, extremely comfortable bedding, fantastic outdoor area to relax and enjoy the breath taking views. The host, David was very friendly and available to assist whenever we needed. I would highly recommend... More

What a lovely and remote spot to pitch up a tent. This DOC-run campsite is located directly at a beautiful beach and the water is warm enough during summer for swimming. The road there is long, winding and unpaved, but it*s worth it! The campground has a neat barbecue area which is spotlessly clean, thanks to the camp managers. And... More

We spent a fabulous 5 days at The Port. From first contacting David I felt confident this would be great place for a family coming together to celebrate a 90th birthday. The location is stunning and the house is brimming with character, charm and wonderful collections. The beds were divinely comfortable and the layout of the house allowed privacy for... More

We came for 3 days and stayed 2 weeks! The house is charming, the garden relaxing, the location spectacular and we felt light-years away from stress. David and John have an extraordinary sense for perfect hospitality. And they have the most wonderful cat in the world : Louis !

The home away from home that you have always wanted, but much better! All the mod cons, a view to die for and an incredibly relaxed and welcoming vibe made for a very enjoyable time. Our stay in this eclectic and luxurious place was much too short. Many thanks to David & John for their hospitality. HIGHLY recommended. Glenn &... More

The port is so very homely with the most breathtaking view. John & DT are the "hosts with the Most". You can't help but feel relaxed & well looked after. The food is outstanding, the open fire is to die for! Coming from a busy city to such a calming surround for some R & R it's just magicial. Have... More
