When I stumbled upon the Lighthouse while planning our four-week trip through New Zealand, it was instantly clear that we would spend a few days there. And so, in Mid-October, we had a fabulous weekend at this beautiful place. Booking by e-mail was uncomplicated, the place is easy to find and not far from the city. When we arrived, Bruce was there to meet us and to show us around. His lighthouse is a little jewel.
The kitchen on the ground floor was big enough for two days, and Bruce had left everything we needed for a good breakfast. The bathroom is a bit small, but well, when you’re staying in a lighthouse I don’t suppose you want to spend all your time in the bathroom. My partner is a very tall fellow and he was comfortable enough. The bedroom on the first floor was really cosy and warm since Bruce had turned on the heater well before our arrival. And the living room / viewing platform at the top is a real treat. It was raining buckets that weekend, so we spent most of the evening there watching the ferries in the bay.
It’s a really romantic place and we cannot recommend it highly enough!
