My hostess was Renee, assisted by two delightful young German WOOFAS. Renee's partner was away, successfully applying for his dream job. Yay Renee !! It was a welcome stay, for me, for two nights on my 2 week visit to N.Z. celebrating my 50 years of visiting this lovely country. The small and homely cottage was a delight, well restored and maintained by the enthusiastic owners. My room was the Keas Nest with its two single beds with comfortable doona and pillows (one of which had a cachet of lavender in it - a nice touch). Small but comfortable lounge with warm fire. Enjoyable home made breakfast and dinner, one night. Guest bathroom (shared with the only other guest bedroom) was excellent. I recommend staying here, I wasn't disappointed with my visit. Stay, even for one night, to break your journey and enable you to thoroughly appreciate your traverse of the South Island.
