We stayed here to go whale watching the next day - with our two kids 12 and 9.
We only stayed one night and the only problem we had there is that none of us wanted to leave.
We checked in after an incredibly scenic drive down the rugged and remote coastline from Blenheim.
The manager - Damer really warmly welcomed us. He has a dry sense of humour and had a joke with the kids. The apartment was the most stylish and comfortable we stayed in in New Zealand by a long shot.
The most special thing though was the view (see photo) from our unit. Snow capped mountains meeting the sea under pink clouds.
As a bonus we saw a bunch of sperm whales and humpback whales the next day as well as a couple of seal colonies. The kids were in awe.
I'd never heard of this place before but it doesn't get much better than that.
