We arrived at chillout taiwawe expecting it to be the highlight of our trip to NZit has surpassed our expections. The location is both stunning and peaceful Des has proved to be a superb host and a first class cook.his food revolves around local produce from his farm and his fishing expertise, which included fresh lamb,snapper, smoked kahawai,crayfish and other delights. Swimming, kayaking, fishing, snorkelling, walking, boat trips and even a sheep dog demonstration have been on the menu of daily activities. We are leaving refresh relaxed, and with lots of memories. We would highly recommend a stay with Des for an outdoor enthusiast who wants to stay in in a very special place.
