We thoroughly enjoyed out stay with Tim and Debbie at Mount Tutu! We actually stayed here in June 2011, but we've been busy so didn't get around to writing reviews from our trip until now. Mount Tutu is only a 15-20 minute drive into town, but when you get back to your private cabin, it feels like you are a world away, with nature at every turn. Tim and Debbie took us on a fantastic night hike to see glowworms right in their backyard! How cool is that! The next day, they lead us through another part of their property, where we really got to enjoy some of the native flora that New Zealand has to offer. We even got to meet their awesome sheep. We stayed two nights, and wished it could have been longer. Can't wait to return!
