We stayed with Mike and Julia on 01 Jan 2012 and were very impressed with the accommodation, facilities, friendliness of the owners and the magnificent setting of the house.
The guest accommodation has its own front door and includes a separate sitting room, WC and bathroom, as well as a large bedroom with access to river via the wonderful and very large gardens. There's a hot tub available as well.
The breakfast prepared by Julia was excellent and Mike couldn't have been a more friendly and helpful host.
Overall, this is an excellent B&B that thoroughly deserves its high ranking. We will certainly return if we ever go back to the Taupu area.
One word of warning: the house is quite remote and our Garmin satnav took us miles away and couldn't find the correct location. Their website has clear directions so use them and don't rely on modern technology!
