Though the weather wasn't perfect during our brief stay at Tirimoana House, the hospitality we received certainly was. John and Michelle were delightful hosts - welcoming, interesting - and interested in everything. Michelle is a wonderful cook, John a warm and friendly host at the dinner table, and the house is a fascinating eclectic mix of treasures from their travels and their quirky artworks. The house is in a great location too. The views across the Sounds from every window and from the many balconies were stunning - lots of birds that would be real rarities in Britain (black swans and spoonbills among them) were just everywhere! Another highlight of our visit was a float plane ride from nearby Picton - a treat not to be missed (likewise, the delicious breakfast on the verandah with fresh flowers on the table). All in all a great place to stay.
