The Bush Sand and Sea B & B has been the accommodation highlight of our trip so far. it's well worth the rate of $210 NZD because it is actually a very new, modern condo with all the latest in technology inside and outside - well it is like a tree house within the canopy of the forest on the ridge. Lyn Happy goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and then give you privacy for your whole stay. The condo comes complete with bedroom, bath, kitchen, dining, living room and a large deck on the east and the west side. It is so peaceful on the deck with only birdsong and the sound of the wind - perfect for yoga, reading, sunning & dining. In the distance you can see emerald green hillsides and the black sand of Bethell's beach. Stop at a grocers and wine shop before you arrive because you may not want to leave. There's a fully modern kitchen and BBQ; fast, reliable, complimentary internet: TV/DVD with a selection of DVDs/CDs; lots of interesting books to review and a very comfortable kingsized bed. Oh and air conditioning should you need it. We just opened windows and a cool cross draft kept us comfortable all night. Breakfast ingredients are in the fridge - I loved the chance to cook up breakfast on our own. Stay a couple nights here - you won't regret it.
