My parents, partner and I stayed with Paulette and John this past week and I must say that I created an account on trip advisor just to be able to write this review. It was a highlight to our trip! Paulette and John are both very modest... they run the homestay because they enjoy it and it really shows. The house is in the most beautiful location nestled between wine vines. It is beautifully kept and the grounds are just amazing. They offer a range of services that they do not heavily advertise becuase they dont want guests to feel pressured, such as bike rentals, they can organize wine tours and you can even have a home cooked meal for dinner! When we arrived Paulette welcomed us with tea and home made cookies. The cookies were so amazing that we asked to have dinner with her and John. She made the most wonderful Tomato soup, rack of lamb and pavlova for desert. I can honestly say it has been one of the best meals in NZ! John helped us pick out a few bottles of wine from his wine collection. In between cooking and us having dinner, Paullette even managed to sneak up stairs and turn down our beds, adorning each with a chocolate! Breakfast was lovely with a home cooked hot meal included with the price of our stay. Great value for money! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Stonehaven, Paulette and John. If you are ever going to be in that area do go without staying at Stonehaven!
