Nikau Suite guest book:
"Fantastic cottage, can't wait to come back! - South Island is beautiful - until next time!"
"Our stay was too short but absolutely delightful. Cottage was charming, so nicely decorated, sea spectacular."
"Wonderful cottage design, warm and sunny with stunning sea
views. Horse riding excellent too - we will return!"
"I took the most exciting educational and breathtaking ride
of my life with Neil as a guide. Don't miss an opportunity for an authentic
and original experience with caring people in one of the most beautiful
places on earth."
I'd reccommend anybody who has ever dreamed of of riding in a natural environment to go with Neil and his horses. This is the property to enjoy this wonderful sport. Relaxed, safe and wildly exciting. If only I could enjoy nature whislt riding like this back home.
Lovely horses, great scenery and a cup of tea at the hut was tops!
Its always been my dream to ride a horse along a wild beach, thank you Neil!
