This was the first time that we were staying in a Bnb and we absolutely loved it. We arrived in the evening and parked our car in the complimentary parking on their lawn. We traveled as a family and had booked both the rooms.
It was my mother's 50th birthday and I don't think we could have had a more special way to celebrate it. Evelyn baked a wonderful banana cake for my mom and we all ate it together. She even gave mom a box of jujups! I am sure it's going to be very memorable for my mom!
The rooms are very comfortable. The captain's suite has a lounge area, a television and a tea kettle. There are pool towels provided, though we didn't go into the pool
There is a delicious grapefruit tree in their backyard. We'd never tasted such sweet and juicy grapefruits in our life. Nick hand picked some for us and we relished them on our whole trip in NZ.
The breakfast was undoubtedly the best we had during our stay there. The muesli was so yum that we talk about everyday at breakfast at home.
It was about a 30 minute drive to Marahau (We lost the road a little bit) but it's an exceptionally scenic drive.Unfortunately it was too cold and rainy so we couldn't go into the park. We roamed around motueka and drove to picton the next day to get our ferry.
I wish we had more time in NZ, we would have loved to stay here longer!
