The rooms were clean, comfortable and well appointed. I like the heaters in the bathrooms and the desire of every kiwi host to be sure you have milk for your coffee! Nice touch. The breakfast was a choice of really nice fruits and cereal and/or a hot, made to order breakfast.
Do take Dave up on one of his home cooked meals... The food was simple, perfectly cooked and seemingly effortless. Dave moves about the kitchen cooking and pouring the wine all while keeping us entertained with his conversation. The meats he prepared were choice, lean and all locally produced. The desert - some kind of fig situation I believe- was delicious!
The property is next to a helipad - don't worry, the noise won't bother you - very conveinient for a ride to the Fox Glacier which Dave will set up for you. Fly early then come back across the lawn for breakfast. A great experience, location and small inn.
The outside entry to each room is nice too. If you want to step outside you can do so without having to go thru the common areas.
