Charming place. Our room was lovely - comfortable bed, little kitchenette, nice bathroom. Loved the shower! Balcony off the room. Short walk to shops and restaurants. Only disconcerting thing was no barriers and people from the next room sitting out at the same time but I guess most of the places in New Zealand are set up this way. Didn't get to meet Phil but Maureen was absolutely delightful and extremely helpful. She got us set up with doing our laundry, booked a cruise and recommended two restaurants, both excellent. They were "Only Seafood" where we had an amazing baked fish with a Galliano and banana cream sauce. Second night was fish n chips at "Shipies" - a wrecked old boat turned into a fish-n-chip diner. Great ambiance! Thanks Maureen for giving us a pleasant memorable stay!
