The ambient stream at the bottom of the garden will surprise you with its wildlife, the baby ducklings,"kaura" scuttling under the rocks, a visiting shag fishing for breakfast and other wild-life native to New Zealand.

​Meet new friends over a delicious gourmet breakfast, enjoy a wonderful afternoon tea with yummy home-made gluten-free baking, an antipasto platter with local wine or fine port in the evening. "We try to provide every home comfort and we will always look for ways to make your experience more memorable. You will leave feeling cared for" says Robyn.
