The whole house and facilities
Interaction with Guests
You can even feed the horse if you feel brave enough........he is gentle. You may also be invited to select the wine from the cellar.
What neighbourhood? We have one other house on our road. Pretentiously we regard ourselves as being in Port Albert Heights, but only because we are higher than anyone else!
If needed, we will assist.
Other Things to Note
We can fit enough people in the house to suit you. If you have a largish family we can move out for your stay (as long as you feed the cats).
MUST have a sense of humour....and drink wine. Apart from that we are private family people, but not stuffy and pretentious. You should enjoy our company! (The wine part is negotiable!)
This was our first Airbnb experience and a what a great one it was!! Mark & Christine made us and our energetic toddler feel right at home. Everything we expected from our stay Beautiful views, Great company, Clean place, Cozy bed and a fantastic breakfast. Icing on the cake was the excellent wine (great collection too!).
Thanks for giving us a home away from home..
A great couple offering a great place to stay.
From start to finish Mark & Christine were the perfect hosts!!
They made us feel more than welcome in their beautiful home.
The house itself was immaculately presented with stunning views of the surrounding countryside. I would happily stay here again as well as recommending it to others.
Many thanks for the chat, food & coffee.
Mark and Christine treated us like royalty. Warm, welcoming, gracious hosts treated us like old friends. We loved learning about their family histories and the founding of NZ.
Food?.....outstanding....Mark is an excellent cook. View from their property was amazing.....postcard perfect. Best sleep in two months of travelling...thank you both.
It was fantastic to stay with Mark and Christine. Both are wonderful people and we had good discussions. I absolutely recommend staying with them.
Great welcome from lovely hosts.
Invited to stay for dinner.
Hearty breakfast in the morning.Second night was in on my own and invited to raid the fridge!
Great place and company.lots of local information.Went to a local A&P Show.
Thank you .
Second night stay was even better than the first. Got to meet some of Marks friends at the pub. One of the best things about staying with AirBNB locations is meeting people who live in the area. It was extra nice for Mark to invite us to meet his friends.
Mark and Christine are exactly why we book through AirBnB. Over the top in every aspect. Beautiful home & location. Comfortable bed. Incredible breakfast. Great shower. Of course there was the wine.. Mark and I share a love for wine so the wine drinking did not stop with one bucket sized glass of wine! My wife and I absolutely loved the time we spent with Mark & Christine and wish we could pop over again sometime.
