With a view out across Governors Bay from the comfortable double bed, across an immaculately tended garden we had breakfast with the tasty homemade jam and marmalade provided by John and Gaynor. A wonderful oasis after a trip to New Zealand tramping. Washing machine was a welcome suprise :). Clearly we would recommend this stop.

Wonderful stay in Governors Bay with beautiful close water views. John and Gaynor were very welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with them. The apartment was impeccably clean and very comfortable, with doors opening from both the bedroom and lounge onto a deck. It was very peaceful and relaxing. The bathroom was new and modern. The bed was comfortable and the apartment was warm and sunny. A simple and pleasant continental breakfast of cereal, muesli, fruit and croissant, along with tea and coffee was very nice. We highly recommend this place and would love to stay again for a few more days.
