What a wonderful place to stay and enjoy the surroundings of the Chatham Islands. Rosemarie and Greg are wonderful hosts who know the local history and surrounds. The meals were great, local produce and seafood. The day trips also were very interesting and quite personalized. Enjoyed being able to walk around the local farmland and take in the views from...

A fantastic location on the island. Greg and Rosemarie are wonderful hosts. I need to arrange a return visit and will definitely stay here again. I look forward to returning to a unique piece of New Zealand.

Truly great week. Ten of us were treated to a wonderful and memorable experience over Easter 2016. Greg and Rosemarie are excellent hosts, relaxed, attentive, and very personable. Everything was perfect, the food to die for, the trips around the island by Greg were brilliant and highly informative. Brian & Jeanne Broadbent

The accommodation and its position overlooking the rocky shoreline was superb and Rosemary's cooking was magnificent. Greg was a wonderful, knowledgable tour guide with a wealth of background on all four corners of the island.

Greg and Rosemarie were great hosts, providing attention when needed and left us to it the rest of the time. Accommodation, bedrooms and facilities were awesome, as were the views from the rooms and the lounge. They are both great cooks as well, and we ended up dining there for 4 of the 5 nights we were there.

We spent a week here and found it so relaxing, independance with us hiring a vehicle from Greg (not a great car but exactly what you need here). The food was wonderful and the facilities just perfect. If you are a diver ask Greg to take you out for a dive it is wondeful. Thanks for such a great holiday.
