It is totally unique and typically NZ. Pristine. A lovely breakfast with home made bread and yogurt. As it is an Eco lodge we didn't expect extra amenities Helen was a great host. .The position of the lodge is amazing with outstanding views of the valley and mountains. It is more a home stay but we had a wonderful dinner...

We enjoyed our eco-experience at Helen's house. Helen was a wonderful hostess who cooked a beautiful dinner and was warm and engaging. Nothing was too much trouble for Helen and she provided great insights into the local area. The bed was very warm and comfortable. The 'no flush' toilet took a bit of getting used to for us. This experience...

Our bedroom was clean and the place was warm, but we were expecting power so we could charge our phones. The kitchen bench had crumbs and food out on it. Dishes stacked on the drain board. The kitchen wasn't clean. We would not have stayed, but it was late and there are few alternatives in this rather remote area. There...

Thanks Brian for your feedback. I'm Helen, not Fern. You did made the observation that you should have checked my website. I could have charged your phone with the inverter off the solar charged batteries, had you asked. I did note that you did not complete the visitor book, as I has asked, although you had obviously perused it. The...

Helen is a fantastic host. She made a beautiful main meal, accomadating for my food allergies. We where offered a number of choices for breakfast, which was delicious.

This was the last stop on our family tramping tour of mid-South Island, and it was truly the icing on the cake. We have 3 kids - 5yo, 7yo and 9yo - and we couldn't have come to a more welcoming home (Helen already has 12 grandkids!). Not to mention the ample range of interesting board games that Helen even...

It was a totally lovely hosting your family, and playing "Gran" to some more grandies! Even better to have had the unique earthquake experience, although not something I can promise other guests. And you've purchased your own Zooloretto game yet?

We stayed here on our way through from Christchurch to Franz Joseph and what a magical spot. The views from the lodge are breathtaking!
