We had a one night stay at this b&b. We received a warm welcome from Linda and Guy who showed us around the house. The b&b is situated on top of a hill which gives a great view (but can be windy). We enjoyed a nice diner prepared by Linda and some nice conversations with the other guests later on...

Linda and Guy are excellent hosts. From the moment we arrived to our departure we felt valued and welcomed. Our room had a fabulous view of the amazing garden and rolling hills beyond. Very quiet and peaceful. A serene setting far from the madding crowds. Linda is an excellent cook - so the "platters" are highly recommended. Guy is gifted...

Guy and Linda are the most friendly hosts we've come across in a long time. They enjoy a chat and love to tell you all about the surroundings and their own experiences. Their place is cozy, clean and homely. It's a hidden gem! I would recommend it to all.

We stayed here for the first two nights of our New Zealand trip. Our only problem was, that due to the late arrival of our plane in Auckland, we hit peak hour traffic and consequently arrived here in the dark. It can be a little difficult as the signage is not very prominent. Linda and Guy were there to welcome...

Thank you for writing a great review and we enjoyed your company. Home cooking is often appreciated after many days of cafe/restaurant food and I have to admit I do spend a lot of time in my kitchen. Being rural and allowed only limited road signage, we send a detailed map with precise directions to all guests prior to their...

As we arrived, Guy waved from the garden, and Linda appeared on the wide front porch, all smiles. We were tired from a long drive followed by two hours at the Kauri Museum, and ready to just park the car and be pampered. Our hosts obliged us perfectly, presenting us with freshly baked cake and tea, and escorting us to...

We stayed for one night and had a smallish room with an equally cramped bathroom comprising a toilet, shower and basin. The bed was a bit uncomfortable and the room was in need of a deep clean to get rid of spiders and webs. We provided our own evening meal and did not try the cold platter. The property is...

..........Linda and Guy are so hospitable and their home has such a pretty, secluded setting. Do not expect welcome baskets, cooked breakfasts or a grand house. We relaxed and enjoyed the experience of being in a super place so far from home. Guy from Provence, met Linda , a Tonganese/Scottish New Zealander, in a youth hostel in Alice Springs (Australia)....
