I stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling around New Zealand. It was such an experience!! Colin & Lynne are fantastic people and their home is so welcoming. They made me feel so welcome, and I got to experience a little of the farming lifestyle. My room was just amazing, best bed I slept in for my whole 5 & 1/2 months travelling. Breakfast in the morning was amazing, and if you get the chance have dinner with Lynne & Colin, because Lynne can seriously cook! Best beef I've every eaten. Oamaru is great, I visited the blue penguin colony and the yellow penguin colony. There is the best gift store in the town called "Omaru Blue", it's a must for authentic Kiwi Gifts. Would recommend Seadowns every single time. I hope to be back.
