"We stayed with Virginia and Steve two nights. And what a stay! We have never before read such a detailed a description of what to expect staying with Virginia and Steve. Virginia has thought of every single detail you might ever need during your stay. It was amazing. Added to that you'll find both of them truly interested in you, however respecting your need for privacy. - We had accepted the offer to have both evening meals with our hosts. Lovely food, made with love and care, and very good talks. We learn so much about people, their background and, of course, NZ, and feel that this kind of B&B is the best of all."
"Thank you so much Virginia and Steve for such a wonderful stay. We really appreciate your kind hospitality and enjoyed all the tips about the sights in the area. We will recommend you to all our fellow travellers :)"
