We were originally planing to stay one night only as part of our trip around the South Island. It's a charming historic house full of antiques from around the world. The rooms and bathrooms were excellent as was the continental breakfast that was provided. When we left after our stay the West Coast was battered by a severe storm which created havoc. Major roads were closed due to many tree fells. The town of Westport had no electricity. We were forced to go back to Westport. Despite no electricity, Jackie welcomed us back and treated us like family. This is what differentiates this place from others.
