    We enjoyed our stay, loved the views and the wildlife around us. Good hot water supply, all the basics for cooking and washing up etc were supplied. Very peaceful and beautiful. Easy driving to Nelson, Picton and beyond. Plenty of space inside the house for all on wet days.

    Very friendly, quirky comforting home with stellar view of Pepin Island and weka roaming on the lawn. Why would you choose to stay in suburbia when you could have this? The quiet was amazing, nothing but bird song. Loved it!
