We visited Tirimoana in August and were not disappointed by the weather, the views from the hot tub with a glass of champagne, and certainly not by the loveliest hosts. John and Michelle were attentive to our every need, a mine of information about local places to visit and things to do, and above all just the nicest people you could wish to meet. The house has everything you could wish for in this area - bikes, canoes, water taxi, books and the afore-mentioned hot tub! Not an easy place to eat out from, but no need as Michelle's cooking is hard to beat. Should you wish to venture out we could recommend the pub on the marina in Havelock (a nice cycle ride if you are feeling energetic!). The accommodation is right at the end of the Queen Charlotte track and therefore a great treat if you have just done the walk. Enjoy!
