this little cabin was exactly what i was hoping it would be. if you think to yourself, "i'm going to new zealand and i want to feel like a local in the country without sacrificing comfort or cleanliness (amongst all kinds of other cool stuff)", this is the spot for you.
van, the proprietor, was a great guy--there for anything you might need
fresh consumable amenities such as eggs, bacon, homemade bread and jams, local honey
great shower-good pressure and heat
small but functional kitchen
breakfast on a nice day on the porch
outdoor bathtub was a blast
milky way viewing
walk to fly fish
surrounded by vineyards, surrounded!
so, if you are the type that goes for this type of vacationing, you found a great spot.
