The view to the snowy mountains had been awesome, its nice and quiet there, about a 20 min drive to Motueka, the next town. The food has been delicous, like white bait, and they produce... More

Driving up the magnificent driveway through the manicured lawns and gardens to the beautiful lodge, we were greeted by Alan, Symone and their family. Sitting in the very comfortable lounge enjoying afternoon tea after a long drive was just what was needed and so thoughtful. Our room was perfect and being able to wander, at leisure around the Lodge and... More
