    We visited our hometown Wainui for a few days and thought we'd try out the DB Homestay for our 12th wedding anniversary for 2 nights. We fell in love with John & Annette's wonderful home especially the very top level (level 3) - amazing views...More

    Thank you Fayth, we really enjoyed having a returning local stay, it was a lot of fun hearing about your visit. Look forward to your return next time you visit family here - we must get you out on the kayaks

    Thank you Vicky, we have some neat photos of you heading off into the harbour, it was such a nice day. We will have a second room shortly for special events, we moved our office to commercial premises a couple of weeks ago.

    My partner and I stayed with John and Annette in late March 2014 and found them generous, knowledgeable and obliging hosts and the "Crows Nest" a great alternative to anonymous hotels. The suburb of Eastbourne has its own charms but is only a pleasant 20...More

    Thank you Tony. The proximity to Wellington is often not well understood, we enjoy living here for the same reasons, often dining or seeing the theatre without worrying about the trip but enjoying being a bit away from it all in the quiet and charm...More
