Staying with Jenny and Ian at Bushy Point Fernbirds B&B was like going to stay with friends. We had a fabulous time there, and couldn't fault the hosts. The bed was absolutely divine and the location intensely quiet. Had the best nights sleep ever, and we found it difficult to drag ourselves out of the bed in the morning it was so delicious, but a breakfast banquet was calling, as were the fernbirds (and Tuis and Wood Pigeons)! We had a quick walk around the birdwatching track before tucking in to a scrumptious breakfast.
The hosts have spend 20 years regenerating and revegetating this sanctuary, and it you are into bird watching and want to learn more about NZ native (coastal) vegetation, then this is the place for you.
You have the run of the kitchen to cook your dinner, and although the facilities are what you might term 'rustic', you should find everything you need there for a really relaxing stay.
Highly recommend this accommodation if you are into conservation.More
