    The accommodation is clean, warm and pleasantly homely. Extra touches like the homemade bread, eggs , plenty of different cereals make for a special stay. I have already recommended this spot to a few friends. Many thanks Elaine.

    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.

    Owner/manager responds:

    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.
