the greeting by Sharon was very friendly, she was very informative and helpful. Nothing appeared to be too much trouble to ensure that our stay was memorable. If you are cooking chips on the BBQ watch out for hungry staff

Glad you both enjoyed your stay, you certainly entertained us, and our other guests whilst you were here :). Probably best that you do not cook yummy kumura chips on the BBQ when the property owners have not yet attended to their tea!!! Sharyn Milkwood Lodge :)

We loved the how the accommodation was nestled in the rainforest with balconies to observe the abundance of large butterflies and birdlife from bush turkeys and resident peacocks and bonus was it was only 5 mins from town. The kids loved it.
