What our customers say

"Dear Margery and Russell! We are back home. It was an amazing trip, and I can’t tell you how much I’m in love with New Zealand. As you know, we travelled all the way from Auckland to Catlins, stayed in a dozen of B&B's and hotels, and I have to share with you that the absolutely warmest hospitality we received, was in your lovely place. Thank you so much from both of us!!

Bella & Alex

Lovely garden setting, lovely hosts. Excellent evening meal and breakfast was the same.

Jeanette Brentnall

As friendly and comfortable a place as you'll find. One heck of a good breakfast as well.

Billy Day

Beautiful location and amazing hosts. The best breakfast before a big day out (the coffee was a lifesaver aswell!)

Alice Baker

Thank you Russel and Margery for hosting generously, and celebrating New Year with us. Riveting conversation into the first hours of 2017. Followed by a majestic breakfast in the morn. An cosy wood interior house surrounded by a magic garden, home to tuis & wekas, a stone throw away from lake Rotoiti.
