The location of this accommodation is second-to-none. Nice and close to the Cape Foulwind Lighthouse walk to see the seal colony and also close to a unique country pub that offers wonderful, friendly service and a kiwi menu with good home-style cooking. They even let you take a plated meal back to the studio and the hosts return the dishes...

This B&B is in an amazing location on Cape Foulwind and you are literally looking out over the sea at the Steeple Rocks. The Cottage is huge and self contained so we were able feed ourselves and have cooked evening meals which we really enjoyed. Pauline and Bruce are great hosts and Bruce made me some Whitebait Fritters that were...

We stayed two nights in the studio (like a bach) with a double bed, two easy chairs with coffee table, TV and a kitchen block (18m2) and a shower room (4m2). A simple continental breakfast is provided – 4 slices of bread, jam, butter, juice, milk tea/coffee. We added a few of our own breakfast items to supplement this. There...

We had only one night at the Cottage and it was really sad because it is so beautiful. This is a real Gem! Soooooo much space: one big living room with a big kitchen (with all the things you need to cook a good meal), an extra sleeping room with a very good bed, a bathroom and washing mashine –...

To call this accommodation a cottage is a misnomer -- it is a house with a large lounge and dining area, a full kitchen, a laundry niche, a walk-in closet, a large bedroom and an ample size bathroom with a deck overlooking a lovely garden filled with flowers with the Tasman Sea and its steeples in the background. The cottage...

We stayed two nights in the small Studio and wished we could have been in the Cottage. It was already booked but no matter. The weather was warm and Bruce had invited us to sit on his patio for our meals in spite of the fact that he was out at work.. We will never forget that spot. The deep...

We stayed with Pauline and Bruce for one night on our trip around New Zealand. The accomodation really is five star. The view from the garden is amazing. Bruce joined us for a drink in their lovely garden and was so helpful with advice for our onward journey.

I can't begin to say enough about Pauline and Bruce Cargill and their place. The setting is amazing, right by the ocean, the grounds like a botanical garden. But most of all, they trusted us enough to leave the cottage open for us even though they weren't there! I wish only we could have stayed longer and hope to return...
