Barbara & Rod's place will take your breath away when you first arrive there: A lovely spacious apartment with a stunning view out to sea across a beautiful garden. Barbara's welcome was no less warm and the communication was excellent.
The flat itself is wonderfully private and a superb place to get back to after a long day. You can see the view from the bed and enjoy breakfast from the huge private balcony along the along the front. The place itself is spotlessly clean and the bed divine.
I don't have enough superlatives left to recommend the place. Excellent value for money and very highly recommended! Would love to return one day - two days wasn't enough...
We loved staying here! Perfect place to be with our 2 year old - close to the beach and other fun things to do. Barbara and Rod thought of everything we might need and then some. We thoroughly enjoyed our time, and look forward to the next time!! Thank you!
My favourite place in New Zealand, felt like home Barbara and Rod where great hosts! The Beach just a short walk threw the garden and down the hill was beautiful. Thanks for a great time!
Our hosts were extremely flexible and responsive for our last minute booking. We were welcomed at their gate and provided all the information needed for our stay. The kitchen was stocked with everything one could imagine for a full breakfast each day of our stay. The accommodation was excellent; lots of space, a bed that says 'come rest your weary body', Interior touches with a decorators eye, views to the bay and an excellent location.
Wonderful place, Wonderful flat, Wonderful host. Next time in New Zealand i will be there again.
The apartment was really comfortable and clean, without mentioning the amazing view from the balcony, a very great place to relax in the end of the day. Barabara and Rod are great hosts, giving us our privacy but also being attentious asking if we need anything and if we were well accommodated, always smiling and happy!
We had a lovely two nights at Barbara and. Rods apartment. They have thought of everything with little touches which make the place feel very homely. The views are nice and it is so quiet and restful. There are some shops just up the road if you need anything. They are both very warm and kind and I hope we can stay at their little sanctuary again sometime! Thanks Barbara and Rod.
Barbara & Rod knows exactly what a traveler needs. After a long journey of 30 hours there was fruit, milk, jam, sandwiches amoung other things. We had a great time with a great view with some great people! Thanks for all and a Merry Xmas and a great New Year!
The hosts were more than welcoming and were genuinely happy to see us and spoil us with their hospitality. The description was well fit. The neighbourhood was pleasant with easy access to beaches.
Great welcome, accurate description and handy location
Barbara and Rod were great guests, really easy to communicate with and they took lots of care of our place - we look forward to having them back again sometime :-)
Barbara and Rod are an exceptionally warm and kind couple. When we stayed with them we were taken by their thoughtfulness and by Barbara's eye for detail. She thinks of everything! The flat has great views and it feels open and welcoming. The first thing we could see from our bed in the morning was the sea, not to mention the native birds flying among the tree tops while we had our delicious breakfast! Everything was just perfect. We cannot thank Barbara and Rod enough for such a wonderful time!
