The hosts, Anita and Alan, are wonderful. We had a very enjoyable and informative conversation with them over breakfast. The breakfast, cooked by Anita, was excellent....

The setting is magnificent and while Anita was preparing dinner Alan took us exploring the olive trees, fruit trees and vegetable gardens, etc. The house is modern, spacious and complete with magnificent views. There were 4 of us; one couple had...

We stayed here en route from Aoraki to Christchurch. It is a quiet, sweet spot off the beaten path. The hosts are welcoming, have a nice balance of engaging and respecting our privacy, and have done smart and interesting travel themselves. It was a lovely way to approach the end of our month's stay in New Zealand.

GREAT PLACE. NICE FAMILY. A little far from a city, but quite and comfortable when you fill tired at night. It is a little bit difficult to navigate to the place. Good food, very worm hospitality. Since we came over at late evening, we are not able to recomend a trip around.

Also you can have a lovely chat with Anita while enjoying her breakfast. She's so bright. If you have a slight chance to drive through Pleasant...

En route from Queenstown to Nelson, we happened across Anita & Allan's place. A quick phone call and Anita was sorting our family straight away. We arrived and were made to feel most welcome.
