We arrived to find a Canadian flag flying in our honour. We loved every minute of our stay with Margaret Fox at The Foxes B&B. Margaret has a wonderful talent as hostess and went out of her way to make our stay a truly special part of our trip to New Zealand. The nearby Abel Tasman National Park was spectacular and if it weren't for the fact that we wanted to tour around the area I would have just loved to sit back and admire the gardens and views from The Foxes balcony. The room, linens, food everything was top notch and I would highly recommend staying there. It was a real treat!
