After 5 weeks of touring around NZ it was certainly not easy to top everything - but the Oceanfront made it! Spectacular views, stylish home, caring hosts and sunshine.

We would like to pass along another "thanks" and let you know how much we enjoyed our time with you. Your home and property are stunning; the beauty made our time away a true refuge. The attention to detail, from the flags on the table to the towel on the deck, from the access to kayaks to the tasteful interior design, polished a wonderful holiday for us.
You clearly have a gift of hospitality. Thank you for sharing it with us and others!
