Our visit was at a bad time for Sally, with Don hospitalised, so we were extremely grateful that she honoured our pre-paid status and took us in. Rockwood is a truly lovely home - cosy, classy, well-kept, spotless and comfortable. Even in winter the gardens kept me busy with my camera, and our upper room with ensuite was very homely.
Arriving in misty rain, the view from the balcony was limited, so imagine my delight upon waking early the first morning to clear skies with the full moon just slipping away behind snow-capped mountains turning pink with the rising sun ! Fortunately my husband is not perturbed at being woken by a madwoman wielding a camera on the balcony at the crack of dawn :-)
In spite of everything Sally made sure we were welcome and well cared-for, and our stay was made even more special by learning how prominent her family has been in the development of tourism & aviation in the South island. We were offered her father's book to bring home with us and it's been a fascinating read, especially having visited some of those places so recently.
Wanaka is one of our very favourite places in NZ and Rockwood B & B a definite highlight.
