Our first time on South Island and we made the perfect choice. Colette is a wonderful host, her breakfasts are everything you could want and the view is perfection. We used this location to explore some of the North part of South Island including Picton, Havelock, Blenheim and the wineries of Marlborough.
Yes it's a winding road and the parking is tight but neither is an issue and since there isn't much traffic on the road it's really quiet.
