About the Landowner, Samantha

We would like to introduce ourselves, Ian and Sam Cutler, as your hosts. You will be made very welcome as guests in our home. I have previously provided B&B in the UK and as we are in such a lovely location I have decided to give NZ a try!! We have a friendly and enthusiastic dog who is part of the family so if you are not comfortable with dogs we may not be for you!
