          I haven't stayed there yet, but certainly plan to after reading your comments on all the reviews... It is great that you respect your guests enough to acknowledge their views... It was the comments on the review from the grumpy guy from Warwick, UK that 'sold'. your place to me.. I admire anyone who states the truth and doesn't resort to cliches when criticised.. It is my husband's 60th later this year..and both our sons are Dunedinites who want to take him to The Catlins/Stuart Island.
