We stayed in one of the units for 2 nights and loved it! The location is excellent having stunning views and peaceful and private surroundings - simply wonderful!!! It is well worth the 10 minute drive from Picton to stay in such a beautiful place, a show case of New Zealand scenery at its best.
Colette is an excellent host and very knowledgeable about the area and what it has to offer.
The unit we stayed in was spacious, clean and well appointed with a view from the deck over the sounds. The walk down through the gardens to the water listening to the native birds made this extra special
If you are planning to visit the Marlborough Sounds we recommend the Whatamonga bed and breakfast homestay to all. We look forward to visiting again soon - actually we wish we could live there!
