Janelle and Selby were fantastic hosts for our few days in the beautiful 'doorstep' to Fiordlands- Te Anau. On our arrival at the Bella Vista we were greeted with friendly, welcoming Selby! After a four hour drive in NZ's fabulous rainy weather, all we wanted was to be out of the car and out of the rain. Inside our room we found the warmth from the heaters already being on and to be given home made muffins as well! The room was clean, tidy and smelt like a new home! We were even more excited to discover how comfortable the beds were! It was fantastic to talk to locals - real New Zealanders who love and want to share their little piece of heaven. Janelle and Selby both enquired about our plans, which were out to Milford Sound in the morning. Janelle pointed out numerous things we should look for, then on our return asked what we'd actually experienced. It's always nice to be more than a number and Janelle and Selby made us not want to leave. Amazing hosts, Amazing location and an AWESOME experience. I guess it's indicative of us not wanting to leave, when we went to check out at 8.55 am and didn't actually leave until 10am.....
Thanks for everything and hopefully we'll be back soon to share some more fantastic winter hats!
PS Paws was also a fantastic touch... I miss him already... :)
