Such good news my late mother said the Sharplin falls track was as good as the best parts of the Milford track but right on our door step and done in an hour. Can't wait.

That's great news!

So beautiful up there

Gael Robyn Edgeworth this would be good!

Oh yay!!!

Week one nearly done!

Itโ€™s been mad, crazy & awesome.
So good to be back into it with everything looking 100%.
Big thanks to Paul Cartney & the team @smithandsonsrenosnz for taking the job on as soon as we made the call to them on day 1 and organising all the work to be completed to a high standard.
Also to our friend Sarah @sbdinteriordesign for all the help in getting both the house & Bistro looking brilliant.

We have made more of a casual drinks area in the Bistro with leaners, couches & bar stools and are opening at the earlier time of 4pm if you want to pop in after work for a quick drink w mates.

A la carte restaurant has been re painted & new carpet through & looks modern & fresh.
