There are certain places where ratings don’t do proper justice. This is one. From the time we arrived I knew this place and their hosts were special. We came too late to go out for dinner and Pam and Peter were kind enough to throw something together for us. And it was very good! The breakfasts were great and so filling we didn’t even eat lunch each day. My wife was pregnant and limited somewhat in what she could eat and Pam was happy to accommodate her. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how great the coffee was as well.
Throughout our stay, Pam and Peter helped guide us and always pointed us in the right direction. Peter even drove us to restaurants so we didn’t have to worry about driving home. It was great just talking with them over wine at night. When we sadly had to go, they knew we had a bit of a drive for a hike and they surprised us by giving us some baked goods for the road.
Lest you think our enjoyment of our stay centered all around food, the accommodations themselves were awesome. Very nice room and shower. There was a deck outside the room with beautiful views. There was a sauna outside from which you could see the stars at night. And the rest of the house is so inviting and comfortable.
Thanks for help making our trip to New Zealand so fantastic.
