Just what we were looking for peace and quiet and being hosted by a very attentive host, Cliff. Squeaky clean and comfortable accommodations. Beautiful views with great night time star gazing.
You do need a car to get around the Island and with Cliff as your driver ed instructor, you should have no problem. I would recommend this cozy stay to any potential guest.
A side note. After getting on the ferry and sailing away, I remembered leaving my camera in the back of his car. Cliff was kind enough to drive all the way back and fetch it and put it on the next ferry for my pick up in Auckland. Now that is a Super Host!
We would have stayed longer, but there were other guests booked behind us. Quiet location, nice views, easy to get to either part of the island, and close to the ferry drop off. If you think you might want to stay in Aukland. Don't. Stay here. :)
