About Us


Hosts Helen & John.We are a retired couple and live in the attractive and bustling rural town of Gore in the south of New Zealand. Our B&B is located on the edge of town and has a great view, overlooking a pastoral land, the Mataura River, the Hokonui Hills and snow-covered mountains in the distance.

We both enjoy meeting people and enjoy operating our B&B homestay. We have operated a homestay/farmstay business previously and have met people from all over the world. It's always satisfying to be able to "show off" our unique southern New Zealand region with it's many attractions and facilities.

Golf is a passion, well catered for by the many fine golf courses in the south. We both enjoy gardening and of course, our family.
