Excellent hosts - very welcoming, with great local knowledge. Rooms and facilities were excellent and with breakfast thrown in. If we'd realised how good it would be we would have booked for at least another night. A lovely stay ... thank you. Plenty to do in Oamaru too!
Thank Ergotraveller

This is our favourite b and b in New Zealand and we have stayed in many during two touring holidays in this great country. We wished that our itinerary had allowed us to stay longer than just the one night as Oasis is a beautifully kept property and there is so much to see and do in Oamaru. The blue penguin colony is a must do.
Dave and Liz are great hosts - (thanks, Dave for the lifts), the guest rooms are perfect, spotlessly clean and Liz's cooking is excellent. Homemade cakes on arrival and to take with us for our coach journey when we were leaving and a great breakfast with lovely choices made this a wonderful place to stay. We'll be back but next time for longer than one night.

It was really a great experience for me to have a stay in Oasis On Orwell and I have wished that I could stay more nights in the house. I have a pleasant stay and warm welcome from the host. The house is also well decorated with much nice flowers. The host has also prepared delicious breakfast and snacks for us. They were really so friendly and I love to talk to them so much.

I really feel at home here. After a long drive from Christchurch in windy rain Liz and Dave gave us a very warm welcome. Our bedroom was just perfect with heater and vegan milk and some cookies.
Dave prepared us some tips on our further road to Milford Sound and advised us to visit Steam Punk museum (the best I've ever seen). Liz gave a warm coat so I wouldn't catch a cold while watching penguins near ocean.
I always prefer to stay at hotel for no seeing people much, but this time I had a real pleasure while having a talk with our amazing guests. Thank you so much. I dream to return one day (fingers crossed).
Thank Yuliia B

Had a great stay with Liz and Dave for the Steampunk Festival. Room was very comfortable, Breakfast was great and the hosts were superlative. They took into account an allergy issue and made us feel really welcome. We will stay here again and have already booked for next year.
The house was close to town, but just far enough away to get a good rest.
Thank prestj
