Perfectly lovely property and fabulous farmhouse breakfast. Delightful garden, especially the birdsong

This was the highlight of our trip — waking up to the fresh air!, the singing of birds, the sight of trees and flowers, and then to eat Glen’s breakfast — Paradise!

Susan Sawyer, Oakland, California

We are very glad to have discovered you. Thankyou for your excellent hospitality — in a very beautiful part of the country

Thank you for making us so welcome, feeding us so well and turning on the sunshine for our visit to the Abel Tasman. Felt like coming home each evening.

Tony & Jean Morton, Wiltshire, UK

Such beautiful grounds — maintained with love and joy. Wonderful cottage with all amenities. Now Glen’s delectable meals, homemade preserves etc. all made us want to be adopted and live happily ever after. What a way to start a vacation. The weather was perfect for our outstanding fishing experience.

What a delightful surprise to drive up to your home. We won’t forget the peacefulness and sincere hospitality. This is how we will always remember New Zealand’

Your garden is lovely and so are the views from it. Loved your donkeys across the road. Your island is fantastic but your hospitality was the best, you are so warm and generous with your visitors. Thankyou, we felt very pampered
