Fabulous gardens- really interesting
Dec 2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Admiral Gardens and Lois kindly gave us a personal tour, which made it even better. Probably our number one pick of things to do on Chatham Islands. Highly recommend.

Art at last!

If you are on a group tour you may be taken to this unique residence set in well thought out gardens for a swept up feast towards the end of your stay. The Coon family make everyone comfortable in their home and together they entertain their guests in a relaxed and cheerful manner. For me the highlight was the art studio in the garden and the beautiful art works on the walls of the Coon home. The meal was sumptuous.

A Garden of Significance!!!
Feb 2020
Louis has created a Masterpiece during the last 45 years. Amazing large vegetables, a fish pond, magnificent large dahlias, canna lilies, and all the other stunning flowers and trees. There are garden rooms which cover about 2 acres. She also has her own studio where she does lovely paintings and sells honey and pottery. You will be truly amazed when you meet this creative woman!!

A surprise
Feb 2020
Visited as part of a small group tour. It was quite a surprise (a very good one!) as we were not expecting such a well-kept garden. Lois was a knowledgeable host who took us for a walk through the gardens which are splendid. Lois was able to tell us about all the plants and her plans for the garden.

private gardens
Jan 2020
a beautiful private garden that has been developed over the last 45 years. Lois guides you through her garden sharing her knowledge and passion for plants and trees. Permission is needed before you visit and there is a nominal charge. With permission you can walk from and/or to Admiral Gardens to Henga Reserve/Lodge.

The garden is beautiful and so much love has been put into creating it. The meal put on by our hosts was delicious and plentiful. We were made so welcome here and loved the stories told about life in the Chathams. Arohanui
