No pets, no smoking please!
Children more than welcome -- we have three children ourselves!
Highway 103 to Exit 10, turn right at the T-junction to Mahone Bay. Pass the 3 churches and the gas station and you will get to another T-junction (has a monument in the middle of the road -- actually is more like a Y-junction, if that's possible!). Turn left there and drive about 3.5kms --- we are number 9466 on your right. The driveway is about 20 metres past the speed limit change from 50 to 70km/h and there is a large blue & white sign and a NZ flat at the foot of the long driveway.
