This was our first stop in New Zealand, we stayed 3 nights and were spoiled from the get-go. Ian and Sandi were amazing hosts and cooks. They are wonderful, and we can't right enough positive things about them. They were knowledgeable, professional, polite, witty, accommodating, and more. From the freshly toasted muesli to the shortbread cookies to the delicious breakfasts,... More

We loved or stay with Sandie and Ian. Wonderful hosts and fabulous chefs. Our room was spacious and quiet. The grounds are in a beautiful setting outside of Queenstown. Probably best if you have a car. You can feed the sheep to feel like a true Kiwi.
