Our stay in Eliza's Garden Cottage proved to be our favourite find in New Zealand. The cottage has a wonderful welcoming feel and the gourmet breakfast provided by Wendy topped off a wonderful experience. We enjoyed wandering around the beautiful garden and vineyards and Wendy's information about the area was extremely helpful.

Management response:

Thank you Marg for this lovely review and being such perfect guests! I really enjoyed meeting you and your Quebecois friends.
