We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Raewyn and Barry's modern home. We had to tear ourselves away to go sightseeing, as it was so peaceful and pleasant, with a wonderful view. Eventually we explored the local area, and really enjoyed ourselves. There is a lot of things to see and do in the area, and the hot pools were a highlight.
We could not have wished for more. Beautiful house, a joy to stay in, fantastic views over mountains, the lake and dramatic hills which looked even better as the sunset. A great example of a NZ lifestyle property. Feeding the chickens was an option but hugely rewarded by the presentation of delicious eggs which poached beautifully. ..surely the sign of a fresh egg. We ate the lemons and walnuts from the trees and harvested the broccoli which all went a treat with the BBQ dinners. Thanks to Raewyn and Barry for their hospitality
