After a very warm and friendly welcome, we immediately felt at home here. We were offered wine (Australian, red) and a platter with a large selection of cheese, and a lot of helpful directions on what to see in and around Tairua.

Eve and Alan provide a very good service. Our room was spacious and comfortable, the wine, tea and cake a lovely touch. Breakfast, served upstairs with view to savour, was plentiful and tasty. We particularly liked the poached eggs, warm croissants and jams. Our hosts were friendly and gave good information on the surrounding areas.
