We booked this accommodation because of the glowing reviews posted by previous visitors. We were not disappointed and would make this our first choice in any future visit.
It is in a beautiful rural setting with an easy 10/15 minute drive to the City centre. The house is on a large plot approached by an impressive drive at the front and has extensive lovingly cared for gardens at the rear.
The house is a period piece with interior to match and fixtures, fittings and contents of a high standard. Our room was spacious with a high quality en suite and large comfortable bed. There is a large lounge for the use of residents. The house was clean and tidy throughout. When sitting outside we could choose between the shade on the deck in front of the house and the sun in the garden at the back.
We booked three nights and took advantage of a free dinner on the first night. This was most welcome before we had found our way around the area as there are no facilities in the immediate vicinity. Our hosts prepared an excellent barbecue of lamb medallions and sausage and ate with us in the garden. The friendliness, helpfulness and hospitality of the owners John and Rosemary is second to none.
The cooked breakfast contained quality ingredients and was prefaced by an assortment of attractively presented fresh fruit.
The personal touch was a stark contrast to the Auckland Airport hotel we stayed at next night on our way home and left us with fond memories of the area.
