A gorgeous house, beautifully decorated, with the lovely village of Eastbourne just a 5-minute walk away, as are the walking tracks to Butterfly Creek. We all loved the tranquillity, though the teenagers were also pleased to discover the PlayStation! Simply the nicest place we have ever stayed in New Zealand, and a highlight of this trip through the country. Thank you for your hospitality - we would love to come back!
