Zugang für Gäste
You are welcome to access the grounds from your patio.
My husband Gary and I built Ballarat House as a Lodge, hosting a number of guests mainly from overseas, plus having visits from our grown children and grandchildren. We are enjoying the change to Airbnb hosting. We live in a beautiful part of New Zealand and love the interaction with the guests who choose to stay with us. Come and enjoy some ' West Coast tranquility with style'.
