I stayed at the Foxes earlier this year. We had such a wonderful time in Upper Moutere with its excellent wine tasting, and also had the chance to check out the fantastic beaches and sightseeing at Abel Tasman. What made this part of our trip so perfect, though, was our stay at the Foxes. Margaret was a superb hostess! The room was private, beautiful and wonderfully appointed. The breakfast was elegant and delicious. And Horton, Margaret's lovely little dog, was a great companion. Margaret is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, and managed to strike the perfect balance of being around whenever we needed her assistance, but giving us lots of privacy when we just wanted to hang out in the room. I would definitely stay at the Foxes again, and would recommend it without hesitation!
