The sliding doors opened to a nice deck with view of a cornfield, a sea of green. On arrival I was warmly welcomed and afterwards the very friendly lady took me to Takaka Airport, early in... More

It was very useful that they lent us... More

We stayed here for 1 night. On arrival Lenaire was most welcoming. We had a short stay so she highlighted on a local map the best places to go in a short time. The room was warm,clean, the beds comfortable and the room was quiet.
