Pam and Peter are simply the best hosts! They are warm, welcoming, and did everything to make sure my husband and I enjoy our stay. It was very pleasant chatting with them, while drinking red wine and eating Pam's canapés. When we told them that we might try skydiving, Pam said she did that two years ago in Wanaka and showed us the video! That led us having our first skydiving in Wanaka too!
The room (Grandview Room) was spotlessly clean, and it opens to the lawn with magnificent scenery. We enjoyed the outdoor spa under the stars sipping champagne very much. The bed was so comfortable that we didn't want to get out of bed the next morning.
The breakfast was sumptuous. We had muesli and Pam cooked us a full breakfast in her open kitchen, which included toasts on fresh farm eggs, sausages, bacons, mushrooms and tomatoes. Too bad that my appetite was affected because I was nervous of doing skydiving that morning, but the good thing was that Pam also baked us muffins for us to take away! Two of them were heart-shaped because we were honeymooners. :)
One very unexpected thing that Pam did was that after we left, she sent us a sunrise photo she took while my husband and I were still sleeping, showing us how beautiful that morning was. In the email, she also asked how our skydiving day went. I think this is very sweet.
Thanks Pam and Peter so much for these wonderful memories. Staying at your place (and skydiving) is one of the highlights of our already very memorable trip and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone going to Wanaka stay at your place!
