“Ahhhhhhh”
Reviewed 25 November 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We stayed in the main homestead with the family. They are a great family and Karen and Husband Bruce are some of the loveliest people you could meet. The accommodation is to a very high standard. It is so quiet here it's perfect for relaxing. There is no noise or light pollution so it's great at night for star gazing if the skies are clear. The breakfast was fantastic and Tasty and we wanted for nothing. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend that you stop here on trip of New Zealand . We will be coming back here when we head back down to NZ. If we were coming by ourselves then we would stay in the main house again but if we bring family we will definitely try out the bungalow.
