A wonderful mind and soul retreat with the best view NZ possibly can offer. Best view of all places we stayed in NZ this trip and best meal cooked by Chef Tom. The hosts, Luke and Kaye, are very lovely and attentive to every detail. We did a private stargazing tour and it was marvelous! Luke gave us a tour of the universe. There are lots of activities you can choose from, including tennis, spa, hot tub, sauna, croquet, etc. Best experience of all traveling time.
