Michelle and I stayed with Dave and Penny (& their lovely pets Ace, Molly and Spike) while they were still located in Christchurch in their lovely house. We had our honeymoon in NZ during Oct-Nov 2011. We were so taken by their warmth and hospitality that we had my brother and his wife stay with them at Dell B&B during their honeymoon stopover in Wanaka in Mar 2013.
Dave invited us on his daily walks with Ace & Molly at the nature reserve and we had a splendid time watching them chase birds and playing fetch. We sat down at dinner with Penny and Dave and they shared their food with us and we chatted for a long time. After dinner we were treated to delicious pavlovas made by Penny. They also shared a dessert given by their neighbour.
They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable at their place. They respected our privacy and made us feel right at home. We welcome them to stay over at our place in Singapore anytime!
We would most definitely love to visit them again soon :)
Lots of love,
Simon & Michelle
