We ( my husband, myself and a friend) had really nice stay with John and Wayne. We had a welcome dinner after a big day exploring the Blowholes (nearby) and the Seal Colony (a little further) . Greymouth is only 10 mins away but we didn't want to be in a town. The house has quite a history and is very interesting. The beds were comfortable, warm and cosy. The highlight for me was the garden exploration and the walk through the tunnel. The chickens were neat too. Pity they don't have a rooster I would have liked to hear them crow. I know my husband enjoyed the history and stories. I would definately recommend a stay, and would definately return. Thanks for a nice break.
