It is totally unique and typically NZ. Pristine. A lovely breakfast with home made bread and yogurt. As it is an Eco lodge we didn't expect extra amenities Helen was a great host. .The position of the lodge is amazing with outstanding views of the valley and mountains. It is more a home stay but we had a wonderful dinner... More

We enjoyed our eco-experience at Helen's house. Helen was a wonderful hostess who cooked a beautiful dinner and was warm and engaging. Nothing was too much trouble for Helen and she provided great insights into the local area. The bed was very warm and comfortable. The 'no flush' toilet took a bit of getting used to for us. This experience... More

This house is built in a very special way and and the visitor should accept a somewhat limited comfort (shower, toilet, electricity) taking into consideration the unique site, overlooking the stream course. Helen is a very friendly and cooperative host. We enjoyes our short stay.
