My husband and I planned our self-drive vacation through a local tour agency and every day of these two weeks has been a pleasant surprise - more beautiful scenery, more thrilling activities and wonderful accommodations. Following some advice from TripAdvisor website we decided to stay in B&Bs and it proved to be the right choice. We felt like as a bonus to wonderful lodging and delicious meals we also had a chance to experience culture a little bit. Friendliness of people in NZ is quite remarkable.
Trelawn was the last B&B where we stayed and it was absolutely the best. The location is breathtaking. It sits almost on the edge of a cliff with a gorgeous view of the river! The house is surrounded by rose garden! On the very edge of the cliff there is a hot tub that we enjoyed one of the evenings - surreal experience, I must add - you look down off the cliff at the river, you look up at bright stars, you enjoy the warmth of the tub and freshness of cool air - and all that in absolute quite!!!!
We enjoyed our room too - we had a living room and kitchen downstairs, and bedroom - upstairs.
The hosts, Michael and Neri, were the most helpful recommending activities, making our stay comfortable.... But it also felt like we were visiting friends. That's an amazing thing about NZ - we were on the opposite side of the earth and felt so at home!
Needless to say - we are going back!!!
