Words from happy guests

Ricky & Fanny       Excellent short stay, the host is very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and New Zealand in general. We were advised accordingly and made some changes in our travel plan, very glad that we did, otherwise we could have missed out on many things. Very highly recommended to anyone, couples and even family with children.

       This is a magical spot. Delicious, utterly natural food. Everything you need, and respite from everything you don’t.

Goetz, Claudia & Hannah       It was wonderfully relaxing to stay at Maja’s place at a very special time of the year. It is amazing how many details Maja is taking care of to make our stay outstanding. It’s the little things like the bathrobe she provides, the awesome breakfast, her offer for pick up in town and her preference of organic products that make you feel at home and pampered. Thank you for getting to know you, Maja, and your great special place with the wonderful view.

       Maja is a great host and made our first B&B try a great success. We could not have expected more than what Maja provided to us, stunning view, delicious food etc. Any inquiries we had got recommendations or answers from Maja. Would definitely want to stay again if we come back to Christchurch next time!

Vicky & Vincent, and daughter Simone       Maja, you are a great host and have made the start of our holiday a memorable one. Although our stay was cut short due to the flight delay, you have uplifted our spirit in every way you can as a great host.

Your house is so well kept and the view overlooking the bay is simply stunning and breathtaking!
