This is definitely the most memorable place we stayed during our 10 day trip in New Zealand. The scenery is just stunning and the rooms are all tastefully decorated. Christine is a wonder host and I cannot thank her more for the hospitality she has shown. My 4 year old son was sick on his way to Doolan's and he was vomiting for 3 days. I stayed behind with him while my family and friends went on with our scheduled activities. I very much enjoyed the tranquility during that 3 days and felt lucky I had chosen such a beautiful place to stay. I never get bored with the scenery (and Christine's offer of a glass of white surely helps!) and there is a lot of space to hang out and walk around. My son kept dirtying the beddings and gave a lot of extra work for her. Yet, she made us feel so much like home.
And star gazing at night was amazing. Christine could give you a guided tour on the galaxy also!
For a B&B, this is definitely the top notch. And it is one of the attraction for me to visit New Zealand again.
