This has got to be the best B&B experience were ever had. The place is wonderful, the bed, pillows, TV, shower, everything were just perfect in fact they are better than perfect. But we reckon the most important element was the hospitality from Tatiana and David. We wish we could have stayed here longer, we truly enjoyed our short time with you guys. Thank you so much and we will definitely be back. Big thanks

Gigi and Glen, Hong Kong


What a wonderful B&B and a great home base to discover the area. We were given such wonderful personal attention, the many conversations over wine and Russian specialities told us much about New Zealand as well as Russia. Your interest in our travels as well was much appreciated. We really got a chance to know each other in a very short time. It was fun and special to celebrate Tatiana's birthday, her singing was lovely. The breakfast was not only delicious each day but nice and hot just the way Dave likes it. The passion and enthusiasm shown through your hospitality will always make us remember the "zeal" in New Zealand. Thanks David and Tatiana for a memorable visit.

Dave and Alicia, Pasadena, California USA

We booked online not knowing it was Bed and Breakfast, but we have found the experience very enjoyable and will be looking for more B&B around NZ Tatiana and David are like old friends you meet with, all the interesting stories from David's travels and Tatiaan from Siberia where the western world painted a bad picture of for many years, it was very exciting to hear of her past and traditions. Wish them well and next time we are working in the area we will be staying here.
