We r fortunate staying at Violet and Paul’s house. Cozy and warm place. They r friendly and easy to communicate! Love to see them and stay at their house again!
Great location. very clean & tidy. Violet & Paul are great hosts and go the extra mile to help out.
Had a great stay with Violet and Paul. Very welcoming and helped us settle into New Zealand on our first few days here! Paul helped us out in finding a van to travel around in. Really couldn’t have asked for anything more from them, would recommend a stay here! Thanks Violet and Paul!
I had an amazing stay here great sleep and lovely people !
Violet is a very welcoming person and made us feel at home. Beds were lovely and comfy and we had some lovely chats. A really enjoyable stay. Thank you both.
Violet and Paul were great hosts, nothing was too much trouble, and they looked after us very well. The rooms were clean and tidy, as we would expect, comfortable beds, and access to the kitchen any time we wanted a cup of tea/coffee.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again; thanks Violet and Paul, it was a pleasure meeting and being with you both
Violet and Paul are not only lovely couple but also kind,friendly couple.
The house was so clean and tidy.
I'm really glad to book their home.
Thank you very much.
How to begin... Violet and Paul are Angels. The first people we met in NZ, and nobody could dream more than meeting them. Violet is for sure our NZ mother, always caring, making sure we are fine, always worried about the cleanliness of the house, cooking when possible, and it is such a pleasure talking with her ! Just the fact of hearing her laugh makes your day ! And Paul... a teddy bear. So generous, patient, funny, and smart ! He drove us everywhere during 2 days, helping us to find the best van for our Road Trip, willing us to take the right decision and making sure we are happy about it.
Actually there are so many things to say about this lovely house and hosts, we could write a book about it.
Simply, our stay has been unexpectedly incredible, we cannot thank enough Violet and Paul for who they are and what they do. The beginning of our NZ journey is memorable , thank you from our deep heart.
