Hi Rodney - I'm delighted you enjoyed the South Island so much - and particularly our region of course which has endless opportunities for outdoor fun. It was a pleasure hosting you! Kind regards, Lis

Wonderful place to stay. Serene setting, great room, scrumptious breakfast and treats, lovely and gracious host. Pretty location outside of town. Consider yourself lucky if you can get a booking here.

Can't say enough how good my 4 night stay with Lis & Chris was. Have been recommending it to anyone who will listen. Definitely would stay with them again. Breakfasts on the deck with the view across to Rabbit Island were a favourite start to the day. Room was large with plenty of storage, powerpoints for charging all those electronic...

Stayed for 4 wonderful nights at this beautiful location. A very comfy room. Scrumptious breakfast on the patio with wonderful views of the bay below. Super friendly and helpful hosts. The little treats left waiting our return was a nice touch. Many thanks Lis and Chris for a memorable 4 days. Ara and Colin

We had to cancel our NZ vacation at the end of 2012 due to my husband's heart surgery. Lis and I corresponded via email and so we became friends during that trying time. We finally got to meet a year later when we were able to rebook our 17 day vacation. We stayed at Cats Pjamas for three nights and...
