David went out of his way to make us feel at home. We had a great picnic dinner the first night and then got to help herd the deer into the corral. Judy got to hold a fawn for a few minutes while it got a ride in the van to the corral to catch up with its mother. A well-located base for a variety of activities.

Oh where to begin?! Our stay at Aoraki Country Cottage was certainly the highlight of our two week trip to New Zealand. First off, the accommodations were clean, comfortable and well appointed. Our family of two adults and two children were very comfortable in the cottage.

The hospitality of David, Nikki and their children was exceptional. From the dinner we shared the night of our arrival, the assistance of Tim with the kayaks and climbing at The Wave, Daniel's joyful playfulness with the girls on our hike to Mt. Cook, Rachel and Caroline's great introspection on education and life in New Zealand, to our wonderful hosts thoughtful care. David and Nikki demonstrated the friendliness of the South Island. And that is only the beginning. (David, my girls now eat turnips!)

As we remember our stay, every detail comes rushing back. Do I dare say that we miss this adopted family and the beautiful country cottage experience? We hope everyone gets an opportunity to enjoy what we did at Aoraki Country Cottage!

I still have the awesome photo of you family standing below NZ highest mountain Aoraki/Mt Cook on my desktop.
Say hello to girls for us.

NZ's South Island is an awesome place... the best holiday I have experienced, better than LA. New York, Malaysia, Korea, Japan....
I've done at least ten things, I've never done or experienced before,

Thanks for such a memorable vacation!"
