This was an amazing place to stay. We stayed two nights, but I easily could have stayed for more. Patrick was a great host. Very kind and interesting to chat with. This home is the perfect base to explore the best part of NZ - Golden Bay. I would highly recommend that you stay here.
We loved the Golden Bay area of New Zealand, and choosing Wendy and Patrick to stay with was the icing on the cake. Such interesting and kind hosts,they suggested great places to visit and we certainly got the most out of our short visit. A must for any visitor to NZ!
Wendy & Patrick are the most welcoming of hosts to their beautiful corner of the South island.Generous with their time to their guests they provided local knowledge and even a hand drawn map to maximise the stay.Handy location for Tarkaka and north end of Abel Tasman nat. park Room was clean & comfortable. highly recommended.
Wendy and Patrick were delightful hosts who made us feel totally welcome at their secluded house and cabin in the garden. Wendy cooked a delicious meal on our first night, as we had a long drive from Greymouth. The surrounding area was very beautiful, especially Wharakiki Beach and Totaranui, although the drive to Totaranui is not for the faint-hearted. Also ate at Penguins Bar in Pohana which was good value, but Takaka was a bit lacking in good places to eat, although the supermarket was excellent for self catering.
This cabin is a good economic option to stay in Golden Bay. The best thing though are the hosts! Wendy and Pat gave us many great tips about what to see in the area. There were many beautiful places nearby to see and great tracks to walk. We also really enjoyed the breakfast in their lovely terrace looking to the wonderful garden.
Wendy and Patrick are wonderful hosts we really felt like returning "home." 2 nights was actually too short as we were told when we arrived wendy. They gave us valuable advice and allowed to return with one of our best memories of New Zealand.
Thank you very much you two! Caroline & Caroline
What a blast! Wendy and Patrick are the kind of people you just want to stay and hangout with. But since Golden Bay was calling we answered and followed all of their recommendations and had the times of our lives. Definite don't miss!
Hey New Zealand Fans!
Our stay at Wendy & Patrick was as amazing and beautiful as the country itself. Had a great time onsite at golden beach, investigated a lot, got great tips and hints what to do and made friends for life.
We already have plans to come to NZ again and get that warm feeling again! :-D
Thank you very much!
We had a lovely time staying with Wendy and Patrick. The sleep out was cosy and had every thing we needed, my partner especially enjoyed having a play on the piano! Wendy and Patrick were incredibly friendly and really helped us make the most of our short stay with them. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay for longer. Very highly recommended!
