Sunderland house was our final stop after 3 weeks of traveling through Australia and New Zealand. After staying at many different places throughout our travels, I have to say this place was one of our favorites. Their attention to detail was impeccable. The entire house was so beautiful. I pretty much want our place to look exactly like Sunderland House.
We stayed in the Green Room. It was spacious and charming. The bathroom was beautiful with a spa tub. They even have full size products in the bathroom, no more fiddling with tiny little soaps and tiny little shampoos.
Breakfast was also fantastic with seasonal fresh fruit, yogurt, fresh baked bread and the most delicious muffins I have ever had. Yep, I ate 3 of them too.
I also really loved the location of Sunderland house. Herne Bay is such a nice quiet neighborhood. Sunderland House is also a 5 minute walk from Herne Bays wonderful boutiques and neighborhood restaurants and about a 15 minute walk to Ponsonby which is another fun place to hang out with lots of shopping, restaurants, art galleries and cafes. From Ponsonby you can easily take a bus downtown.
Donald and Kathy were also amazing hosts, fun to chat with and super thoughtful. Who else would have thought to pack up some extra muffins for my plane ride back home. I highly recommend this place !!!
