Friends of my wife had stayed here on their New Zealand holiday recently and reccommended the place to us.
We spent our Christmas here in the Lady Hamilton Suite, it was like having our own house overlooking the estuary with mirror like views of the scenery in the water accross the otherside.
Very peaceful with birdsong being the only noise - funny the ipod did not get a look in as it was a treat to have this kind of music.
All rooms opened out almost completely onto the garden with the estuary view. and every convienience was avalable in our suite including ample supplies of wine (if needed).
we had our very luxurious breakfasts of fresh fruits, pastries and usually bacon and scrambled eggs up on the veranda at the main house and were made to feel very welcome by Daniel, Margaret and Bruce.
Daniel is a great font of information about the area and booked the best places for us to eat on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
The family business is growing apples and pears and we did spend some time walking around part of one of the orchards - but most of our time walking around the waters edge looking for washed up treasures or just wondering at the view.
Stunning place Daniel - thanks
A great place for our Honeymoon Christmas
