Pauline and Hemi made us feel like their favorite relatives had just come to visit. Pauline is a great cook and a wonderful hostess. She made us feel comfortable roaming the house and property. Hemi was entertaining and very informative about the politics and history of the area. He had sveral interesting stories about the Maori artifacts on display.We missed our dogs and enjoyed playing with their dog Mae who was quite entertaining and very well trained. We will definitely visit there again and keep in touch with them as we feel we made new friends.
