Beautiful place with modern appliances available in the room for self sufficiency. Very modern and comfortable rooms. Very spacious too. Don made a fabulous bfast probably amongst the best scrambled eggs in the entire holiday. Also very nice hosts. Always very informative and happy to chat along. One of the best stays in new Zealand. Keep it up.
