After a 5 hour drive to Gisborne we felt like we had arrived with whanau. Dinner was cooking, Barry and Ros welcoming. Barry is the consummate host and complimented nicely by Ros. On our first morning Barry took us for a drive to see some of the sights of Gisborne and recommended others to us. Breakfast was huge and delicious - we didn't need to eat for the rest of the day. this was the first holiday that we have taken where we have been taken care of so completely. Nothing was too much bother for Barry and Ros. Our dinners were of restaurant quality and filling. We looked forward to seeing what was next on the menu. Barry took into account all our varying tastes and fussiness. A home away from home, complete with chef. Barry took us out fishing at Tolaga Bay wharf, while a baby sand shark was caught and not much else, that was no fault of Barry!!! He recommended places to eat, beaches to try, trips to make. Maps provided, directions and any assistance. Our rooms were more than comfortable and the home was opened up to us. We never felt in the way. I was so upset to leave, I would have stayed forever. So happy with our stay, we have booked for another stay for next year to ensure we can have the dates that we want. Barry and Ros, thank you so much.
