We enjoyed Haast and the Collyer House. We didn't meet the owner, but that was OK. Sandra was informative and even though she was a novice, she made a good breakfast. The house is very nice, especially with the fireplace and big windows. The other rooms were better than ours, but all of them were overpriced, comparing with other places we stayed. I was a little disappointed...had been looking forward to it. Thought it was right on the beach, but we could not even find a way to get to the beach until we were leaving the next day. Interesting place.
