We stayed here en route to Doubtless Bay from Rotorua, and again on our return back to Auckland. Ok, so it’s a little off the main SH but well worth the detour.
Fabulous find – lovely old villa tastefully and sympathetically furnished throughout. Spacious room with everything and more. There is even a fridge in the hallway with fresh milk and water for guests.
Andy missed his way as a chef, the breakfasts and evening meals were amazing – good selection of wines and beers too. There is a great room detached from the main house with an extensive library – books/dvds/cds and a snooker table – again tastefully done. Also free internet access, invaluable for checking-in our return flights to the UK. We didn’t get the chance to use the outdoor pool, but will on our next visit!
The approach is very flexible and relaxed and nothing is too much trouble. Andy has a wealth of knowledge and information about NZ and is indeed an i-site himself!
We will be back and have recommended it to our friends in Auckland too.
