We celebrated my partners 40th here, Manfred was an awesome host and made the trip extra special! Breakfast was fab, Manfred helped out with recommendations, we fed the friendly kaka! Def recommend as a nice place to say.
Situated a short distance from Oban, the location has its own views out over Halfmoon Bay/the Strait and close proximity to stunning Hammond Bay & the view fulled track to Ackers Point. A comfortable and warm house, the upstairs room is definitely the 'room with the view' and visiting kaka. The hosts are welcoming, knowledgeable, and assist with transportation/shuttle. And the local kiwi is a great nightly view. A good base while enjoying the activities of Rakiura.
I can't speak highly enough about your hospitality and kindness as hosts. I will definitely come again. The accommodation is situated in a beautiful bay looking over the water. They were very flexible in willing to responding to my accommodation request at such short notice
Once more another perfect stay with super hosts! All Family members wants that your stay become awesome. Every time you want to have a lift, by car or water taxi you will get it, where you want and when you want - unbelievable! Manfred is also able to create special events, unic cruises or walks. I can highly recommend this , 4 shure.
The review by Bravo01 mirrors our experience at Jensen Bay. This is a nice place to stay, but in the scheme of all the other places we stayed in our 4 weeks in NZ we can only assess as average. We stayed in the upstairs room, it is spacious and has lovely views out to the well maintained garden and the sea beyond. The sofa in front of the patio doors is a lovely spot to sit and read when it rains. However when the sun is out it is very hot even with the doors open. The bed was the smallest of our travels, with bed linen that wasn’t luxurious in any way. We had two single duvets for the double bed which wasn’t ideal. The bed is on a plinth which was awkward to negotiate in the night when we needed the loo. For anyone with mobility issues we could not recommend it. Breakfasts were ok, fruit salad excellent, the cooked element was a poached egg on a cold plate and the breads were pretty hard, not freshly baked. The location is circa 20 minutes walk from Oban. We were kindly offered lifts to town and many restaurants will offer return journeys free of charge. It would have been nice if we could have borrowed the bikes in the garage to explore a bit further, we did ask but were told they needed to be serviced. We stayed three nights and the room was not serviced during this time.…
