The views in all directions of the sea, the pastures, the tree covered hills, the lodge's gardens encourage simply relaxing and looking out for a long, long while. For a B&B the setting is unique. It is 6km from the gold mining town of Waihi but feels like far away. Since we were the only guests, Marg put us in 2 rooms. Thus we had 2 bathrooms and the private use of the kitchen and the great room. She went shopping for us when we arrived so that we could eat in, not really cooking but a pasta or a chicken pie and a salad. There was an abundance of snacks such as 3 types of homemade cookies,cherries, strawberries, melon and other fruits; local cheese and rye-vita. We brought our own wine from our visit to Hawke's bay. Breakfast included homemade bread every day. We were provided with a laptop to check our email. The furnishings were of the highest quality with original oil paintings an interesting touch. Altogether a perfect conclusion to our one month travel in Australia and New Zealand.
