We stayed here for two nights during our honeymoon trip through New Zealand. First thing I have to say: 2 nights is not enough!
Arriving by water taxi is a perfect way to see the sounds and getting a first impression of the resort from the sea. We were welcomed by our hosts Pip and Nic who did everything to make us feel relaxed and at ease. They showed us to our bungalow, which is a self-contained spacious 2-room apartment. It has a balcony with magnificent views of the bay. You can easily do bird-watching from the balcony as there is plenty of birdlife around, small sets of looking-glasses are provided.
We did some walking on the queen charlotte track, the water taxi transfers to the starting and finish point were conveniently arranged by Pip.
We had dinner and breakfast both days in the restaurant which was not included in the price. Prices for the meals were reasonable though. Especially as the food is extraordinary. Dinner was delicious and the choice of New Zealand wines was excellent. I did like the breakfast even better, as my favourite dish - pancakes - was a real treat with a huge pile of cakes along with maple syrup, caramel sauce, honey, vanilla ice, fruits etc.
Overall this was a wonderful experience, staff was friendly and very helpful, the setting is just stunning. A perfect place to stay!
