Diane and Russel were wonderful hosts. First of all, Diane's baking is amazing. The breakfast big and hearty with touches of homemade goodies too. We also had the dinner and she brought out sparkling wine for a guest's birthday. The room was ample and ours had a big tub and shower + mini fridge. Wonderful New Zealand made toiletries were put out for guest use. The area is quiet and the sound of the sea comforting. It felt so comfortable all around.
The lounge was nice too with a fire roaring and a cup of tea with Diane's biscuits.
Free wifi was also nice to have!
I highly recommend!!!
