Magical *****

With it's phenomenal views straight down Queen Charlotte Sound and it's proximity to the start of the Queen Charlotte Track, Tirimoana House could hardly be bettered. Keith and Delwyn were the perfect hosts, welcoming, friendly and informative (not forgetting the terrific breakfast). Accessed via the scenic wonders of the Queen Charlotte Drive, whether approached from Picton or Havelock, Tirimoana House is an idyllic base for exploration or just 'loafing'.
