All the previous reviews describe how beautiful the rooms and views are and the great breakfasts and advice on the area. What is amazing is how both Richard and James treated us a old friends. Richard has an extraordinary breadth of knowledge and interests which he shared with us, including old Maori history and legends. He had information about a Maori goddess of the moon and tides whose name was the same as my wife's. They made very fine recommendations for adventures and restaurants. We would stay there again and would love to come back soon.
