We stayed at The White House for three nights close to the beginning of our travels in New Zealand and were still suffering a bit from jet lag. Steve and Emma are exceptionally friendly and laid back hosts and staying with them certainly helped us relax and take in the wonderful atmosphere of Russell and the surrounding Bay of Islands. The accommodation was very comfortable and Steve and Emma have done a great job in restoring an historic property which had been left derelict. Steve's cooked breakfasts were great and Emma was kind enough to let us use her washing machine and hang out our stuff to dry. A couple of days after we left, my husband realized that he had left some clothing in the room. We tracked Steve and Emma down (on one of their rare days off!) and Emma came to the rescue by shipping the items on to Wellington where they were waiting for us on our arrival. Many thanks to our wonderful hosts!
