Our stay was fantastic. Vince and Carol were so hospitable. We were part of a group of 18 travelling the top of the south island. The grounds are lovely. They are putting in a new swimming pool. All the rooms were very clean and had everything you could want. Vince even ran a quiz for our group. We had a BBQ and sat outside on the furniture experiencing the Motueka sun.

A one night stay to meet family. First time away with our wee dog and was perfect. Nothing was a problem - very gracious hosts. Unit was clean, comfortable, cosy, quiet and an amazing shower. We’ll be back.

Well set up rooms with full kitchen, furnishings very comfy. Buildings are older style but clean and tidy. The bonus is we could have our dog with us. Great hosts - nothing is a bother. Well set off road so no traffic noise to speak of. Handy to town and main roads.

We stayed here for 3 nights while attending a funeral. The first night we arrived late, and the owner assisted on staying up to see us to our room. The unit we were in was lovely. Very clean and will equipped for our stay. It was large and very quiet. The owners there do a great job, and are obviously very dedicated. We will not hesitate to stay there again and will recommend to others. Keep up the good work guys....

We stayed in an apartment for 5 people. It was a nice and cosy place. The host was very kind and friendly. Nice kitchen, beds comfortable and good heating options. Sink in the bathroom was not very clean and wardrobe a bit dusty.
