This was our first stop in New Zealand and we did not quite know what to expect, wow, were we pleased our agent had booked us in here! Joy and Ian were so welcoming and treated us as family in their beautiful house. We had a lovely big room with a roomy shower room next door. The view from the house across the lovely rolling country was wonderful and it would have been so easy to lie in bed and admire it had we not had trips planned. There was a lovely king size bed which has to have been the most comfortable we have slept in for a long time, even more comfortable than our bed at home. I had the best night's sleep I have had for a while.
Joy is a great cook and the food she serves almost all comes from Ian's vegetable garden and there is plenty of it. No way will you go hungry in this house.
Last but not least I have to mention their little terrier Billy, he may be small in size but has a big personality and is always happy to see new people to play with, he totally captivated me as did the beautiful British Blue cat Edmund.
If you are visiting the Matamata area you could do no better than stay here, you certainly would not regret it. It proved to be a very hard act to follow.More
