Testimonials

'Gary's home is modern, warm and inviting. With the bedroom's own large ensuite, private entry and large closet for putting your luggage, we found it very comfortable and spacious.
Gary makes his own bread, which was a lovely touch with his breakfast spread of cereals, fruit and yoghurt. We woke in the morning to NZ native birds singing and the room has a lovely outlook, which was a great start to the day exploring Collingwood'.:

“My first ever! My friends have been on a tour before so I thought I would feel a little bit out of my depth. Gary was great, (it was like going around with a friend). We will keep drinking Golden Bay Cocktails - but we won’t be spitting it out!!”

“Wonderful so much fun; loved it!”
Amy, South Dakota, Minnesota USA.

“You always hope for a great day on your wedding anniversary and what a perfect day we got. Gary was definitely the 'good' in BaD Day Out. Nothing was too much trouble”
