What an incredible spot this is! It's a private cottage on a beautiful ranch, with everything you could ask for! Comfortable bed in the upstairs loft, small kitchen, living room, bathroom and all kinds of extras, like socks for cold feet, books about NZ, homemade fruit cordials, etc. After our 5 hour drive (on the wrong side of the road) we were ready for some relaxation, and the cottage was ready for us, with fresh flowers & freshly baked cookies. We relaxed in the comfortable chairs & enjoyed the quiet & the beauty. We had arranged for our hostess/chef Liz to cater our first dinner and it was delicious! Roasted tomato soup & grilled New Zealand Salmon. Both mornings we went up to the main house for an amazing breakfast of yogurt, homemade muesli & bread, poached fruit, preserves, baked eggs and coffee. The second morning we even got to meet Liz's husband, her daughter & 2 adorable & personable grandchildren. This is truly a special place to stay, and if you can make it happen, do it!
