Thank you very much for your comments it would be great to see you again in the future.
John and Rongo welcomed us on arrival, and we're very informative about Russell....things to see, visits to make, restaurants etc. The place was immaculately presented. Well equipped kitchen. John rang us each morning, to see if we needed anything .

Spent a night with the family at Hananui while visiting Russell and we were lucky enough to get a waterfront room upstairs. The sunset was worth it. The room had everything we needed for our short stay and the hosts were very welcoming and friendly....More
