We, your hosts, are Nicola and Paul. Bringing together two Nationalities; Danish and Kiwi, we can offer you the best of both worlds in hospitality. Paul is a keen road cyclist and Nicola can advise on the local gym facilities . We are happy to help with the booking of any local activities, be it paragliding, windsurfing, swimming with the dolphins in Akaroa (90mins away), whale watching in Kaikoura (2 hrs), fishing, wine trails or even surf-lessons on Sumner Beach. We are looking forward to seeing you!


“Thankyou so much! This was just the perfect stay to end a great holiday in NZ. Wow, what a great accommodation—and what a beautiful view! Thanks for giving us so many information about the region. We’ll never forget the trip with your mountainbikes (the way down was much easier than the way up…) You are such a lovely and friendly hosts—we really enjoyed the stay!” Tina Leib & Ulf Pittner, Germany, Oct 2007

Of all accommodations we stayed at in New Zealand for the last four weeks, yours was (without exaggeration!) a true ‘grande finale’. Interior, views and equipment and superb. Thanks a lot for that and a Happy New Year!” Pascal and Argan, The Hague, Netherlands, Dec 2007
