Yes to all of the above! Even though we arrived in the rain, it undeniably became a retreat for us. We stayed in a lodge that had 2 units, though it does appear that many housing options were available. We loved the feel of privacy and the deck which gave us an additional place to relax. The unit was clean, comfortable and a close walk to anywhere in this small town. One of our memorable stays while in New Zealand… not just another hotel!
