Appledore was the very best placed we stayed during our visit of 5 weeks to NZ. Jim and Janet are the most friendly hosts and make us feel like friends. The accommodate (we had the studie) is amazing - overlooking the river and we were treated to a wonderful array of wild life all whilst supping a glass of wine! On arrival, after long drive, we were offered a glass of wine and then took the opportunity to dip in the pool - heaven and what a view! I recommend everyone to stay at Appledore and spoil you senses.
The only problem we had was finding it ,as Appledore is not in the centre of Phaihia. It is about 10 minutes outside and as we had no directions (our travel agents fault) this proved a bit of a problem. Jim and Janet made us so welcome that we soon forgot.
