We stayed 1 night and were made to feel very welcome. The views from both the living room and our bedroom were fantastic. This was the only place we stayed were we were offered bacon and eggs so it made a nice change. Not sure we would have found it without the sat nav.

Certainly friendly host. Room and ensuite were clean and bed was very comfortable. House wasn't the tidiest but the view was amazing. Price was reasonable and Douglas was a real mine of information and a good cook.

I stayed in Doug's Homestay for a few days..It was a really good experience for me. I had a very nice and spacious room, private bathroom and a lot of privacy. The rest of the house is also very nice, an amazing view from every corner of the house, really good food and really close to the center of the town. It is a very comfortable place and for me was the perfect place to recharge my battery to keep backpacking NZ. Doug is a great Host. Highly Recommended

I recently stayed a night in this homestay. Doug was a great host and the rooms, view and breakfast were superb. Situated on the hill above the town the view is excellent. Doug went out of his way to assist, staying up late for our arrival and offering great local advice. His homestay has a lovelly welcoming feel and was nice and clean. Excellent value for money.

Staying here is truly like living in the host, Doug's home. We were the only guests then and stayed in the West Room. The room was fairly spacious, the ensuite bathroom was also huge and clean. It was a very comfortable and homely room. Doug was friendly and hospitable, and welcomed us with a drink and chat in his lovely lounge. Doug's place is situated on top of a slope (car required to get to town, though only a 5 min drive) so the view from his lounge is awesome - on a clear day, you can see the whole town and the sea. Doug was also very generous to let us help ourselves to any drinks in the fridge, though we didn't take any. Breakfast was freshly prepared in the morning and we ate with Doug at the dining room. While staying here feels like living in Doug's home, there was still lots of privacy. I'd recommend anyone who wants to experience a true homestay with a great view to stay here!
