    the house and the view are exquisite, every morning the sun was pouring into the kitchen and pulling back the curtains in our bedroom revealed the surrounding hills and garden/bush. There were quail, thrush and wekas on the lawn at odd times, two wood pigeon and two Tuis in trees in front of the deck. Kitchen had everything you could possibly need and basics were aplenty for us to use. No dishwasher and no TV suited us fine but some people might miss these. Excellent laundry. Drive to beaches.
