We arrived very late and Wendy did everything to make our arrival as stress-free as could be. Our hosts throughout our 5-day stay were wonderful in every respect. We were treated more like family. Breakfasts were a great occasion, and not just for the food. We got to chat freely

Thank you for your kind review - you mastered the driveway like an old hand within a short time of being here - as does everyone. The benefits of living on a hill of course are the great view to enjoy whilst having breakfast, but slightly steeper than usual driveways generally go with the territory unfortunately. Hope to see you again when you next venture to our gorgeous area. Keep up the research on the family. Enjoyed your fascinating stories.

We arrived after 10 p.m in sluicing rain after 5.5 hours of driving up from Auckland. Wendy greeted and settled us in for the evening and then proceeded to feed us delicious breakfasts for the next 3 days. Phil kept us topped up with coffee and provided us with maps and

Thank you both so much for such a kind review. So sorry that you had such a damp experience with that dreadful storm passing through. But it didn't dampen your enthusiasm and your experience - it's always wonderful to see that spirit, as the one thing we can't change of course is the weather. We are very pleased that we were able to contribute to make your stay memorable.

"All the rooms are very good"
"The top room was large and got the best views but we stayed in a lower room and it had quiet access to a private deck."
"There is one room that's one level up so has a better view (3 other rooms are a level below)"
"All the rooms are great"
"Request the room on the top floor, although the rooms opening to the pool were also great, but they did not have the amazing view"
