Such a unique, wonderful spot. Absolutely one of the highlights of our trip. Gorgeous location. The gypsy truck was a dream come true. I don't believe I've ever seen so many stars in my life. Make sure to take an outdoor bath, hike to Wainui Falls, and grab a coffee at the nearby pizza cafe on top of the world.

We had such a good time, although too brief. Lawrence is a great host and very helpful. We got some great tips from him. We were pumped to have breakfast each morning with the resident weka too!

Incredible location. Superb walks near by, plenty of fishing and swimming. A very special place. The house truck was just magical. Such a short drive from Nelson to get to this paradise. We will be returning!
