Thanks Maria for a wonderful final night of our first and hopefully not last trip to New Zealand.
Were pleasantly surprised when we arrived, B&B accomodation is separate from the main house which gave us privacy. Our room was large, immaculately furnished and spotlessly clean. The guest lounge had everything you could possibly want.
Liked the idea of selecting breakfast the night before from a menu. Like other guests I can thoroughly recommend the Bircher muesli and Maria was kind enough to write me down the recipe so I can recreate back home - although it won't be the same without the views.
As it was the last day of our trip Maria laid the table for breakfast outside which was a lovely touch and after cooking my husbands breakfast joined us which was really nice.
Would love to stay here again and for longer to explore the area as we used it as a stop off but there is obviously a lot in the area to see and do and Maria had plenty of good suggestions.
