After a great exciting time down by Cape Palliser, we got to come back to this beautiful historic home with a fire lit and clean, comfortable cozy accommodations. It was like a step back in time. It's a beautiful, well kept place. I loved it!
This place is great. Jacqui and Alastair are wonderful, generous hosts. Loved the roaring fire and the wander around the garden. Whangaimoana was a property always glimpsed from the car as a kid on a daytrip to Ngawi, so it was a real treat to come over from Melbourne, stay there and learn more about the property.
