We booked at the last minute not knowing what to expect. From the moment of our arrival everything was just perfect. A friendly, relaxed welcome and a quick orientation and then we were left to ourselves for the next 2 days.
We stayed in the beautiful French cottage which opens out to a large deck and an expansive lawn. The French studio is next door but is well screened with shrubs and we were not aware of our neighbours. At the bottom of the lawns there are 200 year old pohutakawa trees with partial views through to the estuary.
We made use of the kayaks to cross the estuary to the magnificent surf beach where we (cautiously) swam.
This is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed in!
