Superb accommodation with friendly and helpful owners. It was the little things, and the extra little things that weren't required, that made our stay one to remember. E.g. After a scrumptious breakfast cooked by Phil, and our tummies too full to eat the freshly cooked friand baked by Wendy, Wendy would place the friand in a zip lock bag for... More

We had two rooms for 4 nights (Mum in one room) and my husband and I in the other. We can't thank the owners Wendy and Phil enough for making our stay perfect. The room is spacious, luxurious, quiet with fantastic views. The breakfast each morning was delicious and Phil's omelettes are a work of art! Phil and Wendy were... More

The room was palatial - and stunningly decorated. Everything was pristine. A huge sliding glass door gave us views over the lovely swimming pool.

This was our first stop on our second visit to New Zealand. The hospitality was superb as was the breakfast which was freshly prepared.

Appreciate the kind review - sorry the steep road was a bit of a drawback for you - the challenges of living on a hill and having a great view is often the steep road leading up to it. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us regardless and do hope you make it back one day. More
