We enjoyed our stay, so much more than if we had been at an ordinary motel unit. The personal touches to the accommodation area were lovely along with a generous allocation of food for breakfast. Must also mention the view of the harbour and the precious native birdsong.
We enjoyed your stay - it was like having family visiting - you even collected our mail and fed the tuis when we were away over night which was much appreciated. You are very welcome back anytime - and thank you for leaving the accommodation so neat and tidy - even doing the dishes on the last morning.
