excellent stay at Fernbirds. with a warm welcome from jenny and Ian. the house is lovely, breakfast healthy and good. we enjoyed a guided walk to see some birds with Ian. our son even had his own room and felt at home immediatly (had some toys in the room). we were able to cook diner that night as we arrived late and during a crowded motorbyke event.

We had the pleasure to stay for (only) two days at the Bushy Point B&B over new years eve 2012. It was a perfect stay, one of the best we had during our trip, despite the rather bad weather, something like visiting old friends who go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Starting from the generous bedrooms and comfortable beds, the nice welcome coffee (and hot chocolate for our kids) to the hearty and healthy breakfast with freshly baked bread, oatmeal, fruitsalad and cereals, everything was just very,very nice. But the icing on the cake so to say is the personal care that both Ian and Jenny show for their guests. Just to give one example: We saw their beautiful glass art work and we were wondering where we could buy it. Jenny just called the artist and despite him just returning from holiday he created a nice glass-Tui for us. I could go in and on about their help and recommendations, but i suggest you just go and experience true NZ hospitality for youself...you wont regret it.

I spent a week with Jenny and Ian and was treated wonderfully. My room was bright and airy with large windows. Birds of all kinds were always in view. The bedding was luxurious and comfy, the shower hot and invigorating. Jenny provided a lovely, healthy breakfast - exactly perfect for my day.. The forest walk - about 15 minutes, or for the more observant an hour, is varied and at the midway point provides a lovely view of the ocean. You feel like you are on the very tip of Kiwiland and should be able to see Antarctica. Luckily you are warm, not cold. This is like staying with a very good friend who gives you a beautiful room in her cozy home.

You would not expect to find such a lovely bush-clad b&b only 5 minutes from the centre of Invercargill. The efforts Ian and Jenny have gone to rejuvenate the bush surrounding their home is quite clear and it has been well worth it. Taking a guided stroll through the native bush was an enjoyable and educational evening and morning activity and so different to any other place we've stayed, native birds and plants were pointed out and well explained.

The bedrooms were extremely clean and the beds comfy. I marked only as very good due to the shared bathroom facilities off the corridor, however they were well kept and also very clean.

Breakfast was continental style with fresh home-made bread, lots of cereal and a beautiful fresh fruit salad.

Ian and Jenny were both very knowledgable about the surrounding area and sights for visitors which really helped plan the next day through thr Catlins.

Unfortunately we did not get spend longer here, the rooms were VERY clean and well presented, and the beds were so comfy, I have stayed in 5 star hotels that have not had beds this comfortable. The hosts go to great efforts to make your stay a memorable one. We love the tour of the grounds to see the native plants and birds. Not one complaint, thank you Ian and Jenny.
