The toilet is in a separate room next to bathroom.

My artworks are on display in this relaxing room, as well as gift cards featuring photographs of original canvases and portraits of the garden.
.... Hand painted silks are festooned down the hallway towards the guests room.

Notre séjour chez Di était un vrai plaisir ! Di est charmante, très accueillante, chaleureuse et pleine d'attentions. Sa maison originale, confortable et si joliment décorée est un lieu idéal pour séjourner près d'Okaroa. Di est aussi une aide précieuse pour organiser des activités sur place. Les enfants ont beaucoup aimé être chez elle, et nous aussi, mille merci*** Di !
