“Unforgettable experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

The start of our month in New Zealand couldn't have been bettered. Lovely accommodation, beautiful surroundings near to spectacular, deserted beaches( with dotterel and chick!), delicious breakfasts. We did the stargazing with Alastair and it was amazing, his enthusiasm was infectious. He and Harriet were such charming hosts, three nights was not long enough. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Double room leads onto the deck

of all the amazing experiences we have had in NZ, this is still our favourite, An amazing place to stay - beautiful, well-equipped, fantastic surroundngs and great beaches within easy reach. We did the stargazing tour with Alasatair. He was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and now we bore everybody with our new knowledge of the key stars! As if that wasn't enough, he offered us a tour of his disused gold mine, which we jumped at. Equipped with hard hats and wellies, we imagined the conditions of mining years ago - again, thanks to Alastair's informative commentary. The idyllic surroundngs included glow worms by the river and 2 steers who loved oranges (I bought them especially) Harriet and Alistair were charming hosts and we enjoyed talking to them so much that the goodbyes took nearly an hour! Go there and stay longer than we did! However, couples need to know that there is just one double bedroom and 2 bedrooms with a single bed in each.

Visited Alastair and Harriette in Whitinaga and wished I would have stayed longer. A beautifully appointed B&B with unparalleled hospitality. I was starstruck.
Alastair gave us the grand tour of the skies, we saw the various constellations, planets and celestial bodies.
Harriette took very good care of us with her hospitality.
This is a little know jewel and I highly recommend it! I will definitely go back!
