The 'Last Resort' was exactly what we were looking for - away from the crowds in a very private part of the Wairarapa Coast. The queen and twin rooms were beautifully made up and the kitchen/dinning/lounge were situated across the front of the unit taking in this spectacular coast line. Everything that we needed was there including a wood burner fire with the wood all set up to go. The unit was spotlessly clean and Ralph and Pam were perfect hosts. We would love to come again sometime to enjoy more of the remoteness that is offering and of course the fishing. Thank you so much, Robert and Sue (from Milford, North Shore)

Pam and Ralph were the loveliest and warmest of hosts, made us feel right at home and hit on our passion for fishing by giving us tips on locations and baits to use. The house we stayed in was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped for our short stay. The views from the house were just wonderful and enabled us to recharge over just a short period. Extra highlights was the inclusion of a crayfish pot setting session, a chance to see the coast many others perhaps have not, learning some of the history of the location from Ralph was very interesting and the loan of a vehicle. Oh, and the crayfish were devine!
Our parents from England thought that this was their best holiday in New Zealand(after having visited New Zealand many times). We absolutely loved the tranquillity and beauty of the area by day and night. The house was amazing with a stunning view... . We will come back again.
