Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The Marlborough Sounds is one of the great untouched parts of NZ. Lots of million year old native forests, pristine waters, ever changing views. This. house and Michelle were very welcoming with amazing breakfasts, an excellent dinner and a very comfortable room. Close to the Queen Charlotte Track, a must do for any adventurer.

The rooms were great, as was Michelle's lounge, adorned with her various art and craft work. Her breakfasts, served on the veranda when possible, were original and wonderful. Michelle herself was warm, chatty and helpful - we had met another friend. A nice little hot pool topped off the accommodation. And the views!!! Sunsets over the Sound were amazing, and...

Exceptionally warm, welcoming, individualised service supported by incredible attention to detail and Chris and Michelle's charm and personal interest would make Trrimoana a woderful experience. Add furnishings that work, views over the inlet and Michelle's skill in the kitchen for an unforgettable experience.
