Unfortunately we only had one night with Helen and Wayne, but it was one of the best of our holiday. They were so welcoming when we arrived and soon had us seated on the patio with a cold drink overlooking Helen's beautiful garden. She asked us what our plans were for our stay and we told her that we would like to go jet boating. Well no sooner said than done. She was on the phone to a friend of hers and the next day the minibus came right to the house to pick us up.
This was after a wonderful breakfast which she cooked for us making sure we had enough to last us for our trip as we would not be back until early afternoon. She was a wonderful hostess and the room too was so fresh, light and clean with lovely decor. We would thoroughly recommend this home stay to anyone who wants to get a real taste of excellent Kiwi hospitality.
