This accommodation is in beautiful surroundings with extremely hospitable owners. The rooms are beautifully appointed with every convenience a tourist may need - from safe to hairdryer, from tv to internet access.
We had a delicious fully cooked breakfast (from our own menu) in addition to juices, cereals, breads, fresh local fruit with homemade jams and local honey.
Although a little way out of Napier, access was very easy.
Information was sent by Jes well before the visit about attractions and landmarks along the route to Esk Valley and both Eileen and Jes suggested many local restaurants and viewpoints to visit.
A really super stay - highly recommended.
