We were pleasantly greeted with an upgrade in our accommodation with no extra charge. The hosts put us in a two bedroom unit with a lounge & fully equipped kitchen. All of the facilities were presented in a neat, clean & fresh manner. I was even impressed that we were asked whether we'd prefer full cream or skim milk (most places don't give you that choice).
The the cool think was free WiFi. In this modern era of travel, free WiFi is a great addition to any accommodation.
Kids both agreed that this place deserves a 5 star rating.

... to China. Southland use to be mainly sheep farms but as the price for milk has greatly increased in New Zealand over the last 10+years, the 'better’ sheep grazing land has been changed for dairy cattle. Would you believe that a Dutch company grows and exports 45million tulip bulbs to Holland each year! The harvesting of the bulbs had just finished.
A visit to Invercargill cannot be complete without a drive out to Bluff to have the obligatory photo, but ...
... yes, got chased by a sea lion. After that we went for a bush walk to the prettily named bog lake.. Our guide really knew his stuff about the plants growing here and told us all about the various species. Our last stop off before we hit Invercargill was at a beach where yellow eyed penguins were supposed to be nesting. Unfortunately we didn't have any luck and saw no penguins :( but they are the rarest in the world so we would have been blessed if we did see any! On this ...
You can't come to NZ without visiting Milford Sound (located in Fiordland NP), so here we are. It has been all go geologically here for the last 400 million years. Firstly the grinding together of the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates pushed up a lot of sediment creating all the mountains of the Southern Alps right down to Milford Sound, with added help from volcanos. Then the mountains at the southern end of the Alps dropped back down under the sea, where they collected ...
... a breeding programme for the Takehe where they breed young and release them on Islands that have been cleared of pests. The Takehe was thought to be extinct until 1949 and there are now thought to be about 200 in Fjiordland. It's a big flightless bird, bigger than a chicken, with a blue body and a red beak. We headed south by the scenic route, albeit scenic views constrained by the weather, and very few vehicles on the road. ...
... house is at a dead end, surrounded by farmland. It's on one level with a garage, a few bedrooms and big, cosy living room and kitchen area, leading out onto the decking and the garden (complete with hot tub). It's heated by a wood burner, which we'll have to learn how to fire up before Debbie and Graham set off on their holidays. Apparently, adding a few pinecones will help us novices start the fire. We put down our rucksacks, connected our laptops to the ...
