Fodor's Review

Built for a sea captain, this restored, 1880's Victorian villa, now a traditional-style B&B, mixes old and new, from the original fireplaces and matai and rimu paneling to Wi-fi access. The design pairs antiques with modern fabrics and conveniences. Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with shower; the three luxury rooms also have a separate bathtub. You can settle in with coffee or a drink in by the wood-burning fireplace in the guest lounge, or on the sunny garden deck, or lose yourself in the woodland garden. The house is near the town center. Hosts Karel and David will attent to your every need, and give you some great ideas for exploring the region they love.
