We had a birthday party to attend locally and booked in for a night. Well appointed, comfortable quiet location & accommodation.
Fabulous hosts who even indulged the birthday boy and his mate in their beautiful garden when they arrived unexpectedly.
The night sky is amazing when viewed from their large garden.
The "Local" is a minutes walk away with the usual friendly folk and large "pub" meals.
Great B & B breakfast too.
Mike and Marietta are wonderful hosts who give you the feeling that you are more than welcome in their lodge. The lodge is a spacious building next to their house that is surrounded by a large garden. The garden as well as a swimming pool is also available for guests. This is very quiet place in a beautiful surrounding, suitable to make day tours or hiking in the Wairau Valley environment. The lodge is very clean and the breakfast that Mike brings in the lodge at your preferred time is delicious. We stayed here for two days before taking the ferry to the North Island and have enjoyed every minute of our stay. Highly recommended for people who like the countryside.
Large living area as well as an outdoor space. Everything clean and well maintained and a comfy bed. Mike is a very good host and his breakfast is a great start to the day. It’s all located in a tranquail setting. Pleased we found this.
