        Excellent Stay - Skip the meal offered. ”

        The homestead is lovely. We had our own bathroom which was accessible across a public hall, and a separate bedroom with a king sized bed. the living room was lovely. The property has a backyard to walk around, and an outdoor pool (with a few dead bugs in it, but such is an outdoor pool). Our hosts were lovely. The dinner option - Blyth prepared a lovely meal with wine that we paid $85 per person, which was not great value unless you really love English food like plain boiled potatoes, meat/beef with horseradish sauce, cheesy boiled broccoli, etc. The only standout was a broccoli / blue cheese soup, which appeared to be made out of the same ingredients as the broccoli that was served in the second course. An additional charge of $25 extra PER PERSON for wine (which I barely drank), was not disclosed at the time of the dinner and I do not remember that from the listing. I would consider the dinner option a good choice but not for the price.

        I wish we could have stayed longer. We had a wonderful time chatting with our hosts. Everything was perfect, well thought out, clean, and comfortable. We had the added bonus of getting to hang out with Coco, the chocolate lab puppy, who is kept tucked away unless it is clear that a guest is a dog person. We were!

        this was by far one of the best b & bs i have ever stayed at. i was traveling with a couple colleagues, and the hosts gave us an extra room to spread out, free of charge. they were funny, interesting, and helpful in their conversation, and gave us the space to have privacy in one of the most beautiful regions of the world. i highly recommend the waiorau homestead, and will definitely return.
