Mike and Lynley were fantastic hosts and clearly work extremely hard to make sure their guests have the best time possible. I will definitely be back to Hopewell!

I recently stayed at Hopewell and couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Hopewell has some of the cheapest kayak, paddle board and fishing gear rentals in the South Island and you could hardly find a more beautiful place to use them. The rooms are immaculately cleaned and the kitchen is stocked with every utensil/gadget you may ever need. My friend and I completed all 3 of the nearby hikes and loved the amazing views over the sounds. (They were also great way to try to work off one of Lynley’s giant gourmet pizzas!) Mike and Lynley were fantastic hosts and clearly work extremely hard to make sure their guests have the best time possible. I will definitely be back to Hopewell!
