This house is lovely, clean, and had a remarkable view! However, even if the house wasnt, it would have been worth it to stay with Erika. She is a truly wonderful human and we felt as if we were staying with an old friend. If you want a local's suggestions on things to see on Picton, or NZ in general, ask her! She's a wealth of knowledge.

Erika was such a wonderful person and very knowledgable about New Zealand sights that were not just mainstream tourist traps. Erika's home however is dirty at best. It smells of litter box, cats and cigarette smoke. The dishes and cookware from the cabinets had to be washed before using them as they were covered in oil and food bits. The towels were covered in cat hair for after your shower. Erika is a very nice person and is very informative, however her place is very dirty/messy/smelly. If you have allergies do not stay here. If you are looking for a clean place to stay, this place is not for you.

The house is spacious and well located, 5 min from the ferry terminal. Erika is a wonderful host, she takes care of everything, makes you feel at home as you arrive. She is very knowledgeable about NZ and she gave us precious advice for our trip. And the freshly cooked breakfast was delicious! Definitely an AirBnB top-pick!!!

I am a born Austrian and visit NewZealand 10 years ago .My first motion has been I wanna stay here for a while, well thats now 10 years ago and I call myself a proud Volunteer Kiwi.
Since I am here I travelled and explored the Country and I think there is hardly a road I have not driven, Thats how I found a numberless amount of hidden treasures and unique places. I am more than happy to share my knowledge with my visitors to make their vacation to a dream holiday.
I love to be out in the nature and since a few years I am an active member of Protect Jonah to help sea mamals in troubles.
