We stayed here en route to the Queen Charlotte track. The friendly owner discussed our plans and drove us to a starting point on the track which gave us a beautiful 4 hour walk back to Anakiwa more suited to our middle-aged abilities than our original plan would have been. If the weather had been suitable he would have transported us to our starting point by boat.
We had the double ensuite with large deck and our friends had another double ensuite. Really comfortable beds and everything was spotless. We enjoyed ourselves sitting in the sunset on the deck, using the spa pool, checking out the extensive book and video library and using the very well equipped kitchen to cook our meal.
It really exceeded our expectations and it was luxury at a very affordable price. T
