Guest Areas


  • The lounge is there for your enjoyment, there is a range of music to listen to, and dvds to watch. We also have a large selection of books about New Zealand to read (including some great NZ cartoons).
  • Tea and coffee making facilities are in the lounge. Feel free to take a cup back to your room if you wish to relax with your feet up before dinner or early in the morning. The tea selection includes a large range of herbal teas.
  • The lounge has an honesty fridge system for those wanting a beer or soft drink. We also sell wine by the glass, from John’s lovingly stocked cellar.
  • For comfort and health of all our guests, we request no smoking inside, only in the front of the house.


  • The outside area has been recently upgraded to maximize guest enjoyment and socializing.
  • A bbq is available to guests who wish to cook their own dinner while enjoying the summer sun. Organically grown local beef is available at the local store.




  • And on slightly cooler nights a brazier has been placed in the middle of a secluded seating area.
