  • We had a lovely time, beautiful relaxing setting

    We had a lovely time, beautiful relaxing setting. Peeling oysters off the rocks was a highlight as were the sunsets. We found it impossible to keep windows open at night as per owners preference as we were eaten alive by mozzies. Bug nets would assist here and the mattress needs replacing. We really enjoyed the use of the kayaks although we did find the price a little steep. Otherwise, what a wonderful quiet, pretty piece of paradise anyone would fall in love with. :-)

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thank you for your feedback. As we mentioned, we have insect screens ready to be fitted over the winter break. There is a local kayak company (nzseakayaking.com) who offer a very good service for kayak or mountain bike hire and tours on the Queen Charlotte Track. Also available is the Pelorus mailboat (themailboat.co.nz). We are happy to book these services for guests. Alternatively for more casual use we have 2 stable sit-on fishing kayaks at only $30 per day pp and the rowboat at no charge.
