Lisa offered us a choice between the room we'd booked (upper floor, main house) or a unit out the back. Even though the view from the house room was total sea view and we would have had the top floor to ourselves, we chose the unit to save my wife from having to climb stairs. Unit 1 is warm and...

We had a short time here on our way to Stewart Island. It certainly met our needs for a quiet and comfortable place to sleep after traveling a long way from the US. Lisa, the host, was so thoughtful to immediately urge us to go to dinner before the local restaurant closed when we arrived late in the evening. She...

We wish we had been able to stay longer. The sea side location was wonderful even though the weather was not. Rooms were large, comfortable, clean and well appointed. The furnishings were not brand new, but tasteful. We were greeted so warmly and time was taken to make certain that we were settled and that all of our needs met...

Loved the accommodation and the host, Lisa. She was bubbly and friendly and gave good advice and booked us in to a great restaurant. Had the best accommodation in a house. Loved it, however disappointed not with the accommodation but the oysters they were not in season bummer.

Our host, Lisa, was charming, helpful and gave us great advice on where to eat and what to do and see during our stay. The one bedroom motel room was bright, cheerful, clean and modern. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. Thank you, Lisa, for making us feel at home!

Room is actually a box built on the back driveway. The ocean view is from the front porch looking out the driveway between two buildings-next to the barking dogs. I would recommend against staying here. The odor from the dogs permeated the room. The back unit appeared clean but was not ocean front accommodation as described. The facilities are not...

The location could not be better: it is on the seafront with excellent views and very handy for the Stewart Island ferry. Parking is around the house. I was warmly welcomed and shown my bedroom with a superb view of the sea. I was in the house accommodation not in the motel rooms. The house is a family home just...

Well kept accommodation, overlooking the harbour and seafront, close to the end of the Highway, and a good restaurant there too. We stayed in the separate house a block away and it was perfect for our family. Laundry was a bonus! Recommended.

This is a great spot to stay in Bluff. Lisa welcomed us in like old friends and gave a detailed description of the area and the motel unit we stayed in. The room and facilities are well thought out with many little additions that were appreciated. The shower was fantastic - just what I needed after a walk around Bluff...

We stayed a couple of nights, with the main reason to go over to Stewart Island. We had a self contained unit behind the main house. It was placed so we could see the ocean from the unit. It was comfortable and homely. The owner was very pleasant and was able to advise us on eateries. It is very well...
