Maya & Emilia with their parents Daniela & Frederik Jung (Germany) - Oct 2013

"After an exhausting journey we were made to feel so at home and relaxed during our stay with Gill and Paul. We really enjoyed all of Gill's home cooked bread and cakes etc and the location was so peaceful.
Gill and Paul did all they could.... and more to make us feel comfortable. They even accompanied us to watch the England v Black Caps cricket match (England won).
We would thoroughly recommend anyone travelling to New Zealand to start their holiday with Gill and Paul. Thanks once again for looking after us so well and all your kindness."
Roger and Linda Hill (UK) - Feb 2013

"Gill and Paul made me feel so welcome to their lovely home, after a long jounery from the UK, with tea and delicious homemade cakes. My room and bed were so comfortable. I started each day with Gill's fantastic homemade muesli and fresh fruit. I loved my week stay with Gill and Paul and almost did not want to leave to begin my travels around New Zealand, which Gill  patiently helped me start to organise. We had dinner one evening of fish caught by Paul, served with a delicious Zucchini recipe of Gill's. Both Gill and Paul are wonderful hosts and I would highly recommend staying here."
Morag Coates (UK) - March 2012

"Thank you very much for the pleasant stay at your bed and breakfast! We felt at home immediately, like visiting a family away from home. That's exactly what we needed for a good start to make New Zealand our new home!"
Judit & Christian (Austria) - Oct 2011

"Stayed here for a Rugby World Cup weekend, which we enjoyed apart from the result. (ENG v SCO) We were given a warm welcome on arrival and made to feel very much at home. Facilities were excellent and our hosts Gill and Paul went out of their way to help with maps and other travel advice. Must mention Gill's skills in the kitchen especially the home made jams. She was good enough to share her recipe for lemon curd which we will be trying out when back in UK"
Gary & Brenda Steel (Yorkshire, UK) - Oct 2011

"Haven was well named as it was my first stop on my rugby odyssey in New Zealand.  A brilliant place to stay, quiet and peaceful. Gill and Paul were a most welcoming and charming couple."
David O'Rorke (Newcastle, UK) - Sept 2011


“Thanks for everything, Haven Homestay - felt like home from home. We were well looked after with lovely clean and well presented bedroom and bathroom facilities’. We also had a good choice of food at breakfast time and Gill’s home cooked meals and baking were to die for. Oh, and I mustn’t leave out Paul’s specialty of smoked snapper (freshly caught) – beautiful! We would like to recommend Haven Homestay as a warm and friendly environment for both couple's and families’ and I am sure Gill and Paul will do everything they can to make your stay as memorable as ours. THANK YOU!"
