What a gem, this is seriously beautiful accomodation with a view to die for, so amazing to sit every morning on the deck and take it all in. I'm going to miss that view!

You MUST stay at this place! It has the most stunning view anywhere in New Zealand and at a reasonable price! We stayed in two different houses on the property (Captain's Quarters and Crows Nest).
