Having stayed in varied accommodations on our monthlong trip in NZ from motels, brand name hotels to B&Bs this was the nicest room we have stayed in. The motel units are immaculate and well appointed with lovely touches such as quilts on the bed to an incredible shower. I was shocked when the owner Lisa said they were 6 years...

Lisa made us very welcome. We had a super comfortable room with a lovely view -it had been a very windy day so it was lovely to enjoy it through a picture window. We were grateful for her recommendation to go out to eat early, as the only cafe in town is likely to close up if there are no...

This accomodation was a huge surprice, we were made to feel welcome by our lovely hostess Lisa and the unit was full of little extra's. If you are in Bluff go and see Lisa, you won't regret. Thank you so much.

We stayed two nights last week and thought it was great. Lisa is a wonderful hostess and provided us with everything we needed. My daughter and I stayed in one of the suites behind the main house and it is nicely equipped. Great place to stay if you are doing the shark dive with Mike.

We stayed here for 1 night on our NZ roadtrip as we wanted to do a shark tour. Lisa was the most wonderful host and greeted us with such warmth. We had a lovely, clean suite on the back yard with a view of the sea. Wifi worked well and we had a great nights sleep. Definately recommended!

We stayed at the 2 bedroom house and we were lucky to have the sea view as the house in front was torn down for construction. The house was very nice, clean and tastefully designed. Accommodated my family of 4 very comfortably. It came with a washing machine and dryer. The kitchen was fully equipped and it even came with...

Decided to write this review while we are cozy in Unit One and in bed :-) We arrived around 5:00pm after a busy day touring Stewart's Island. Lisa was out front calling our name as we slowly pulled into the driveway. What a warm welcome. She even brought us some ice for our evening cocktail, thank you! Our unit is...

This facility would be an excellent choice anywhere but is all that much better given its commanding ocean view in Bluff. The hostess is super friendly and helpful and our room was spotlessly clean and exceptionally well appointed. Very comfortable and very well equipped room. The heat pump was very much appreciated and was very effective. Bluff was a great...

Lisa offered us a choice between the room we'd booked (upper floor, main house) or a unit out the back. Even though the view from the house room was total sea view and we would have had the top floor to ourselves, we chose the unit to save my wife from having to climb stairs. Unit 1 is warm and...

We had a short time here on our way to Stewart Island. It certainly met our needs for a quiet and comfortable place to sleep after traveling a long way from the US. Lisa, the host, was so thoughtful to immediately urge us to go to dinner before the local restaurant closed when we arrived late in the evening. She...
