We stayed 2 nights at Glendaruel Bed & Breakfast. Raylene is amazingly helpful. Even before you arrive she is emailing you information and suggestions to make your Stewart Island stay special. Such a great base for exploring Stewart and Ulva Islands.

If you want kiwis this is the place to stay. Raylene regularly gets them in the garden and we woke to the sound of them on our first morning. They are also seen on the sports ground behind her home and my husband was delighted...More

The house is perfectly laid out, rooms are lovely, and the lounge is wonderful. Raylene, the owner, goes out of her way to make sure she meets every guest personally on arrival and welcomes and fully informs every guest about all there is to do...More

About
Description
Glendaruel, nestled between Halfmoon Bay and Golden Bay, is ideally situated to help you maximise your time here. Overlooking Paterson Inlet and Ulva Island, it is bordered on two sides by uninterrupted vistas of More native forest, alive with birdsong. The village of Oban on one side and the water taxis to Ulva Island Bird Sanctuary on the other are but a few minutes walk away.Glendaruel garden, a fusion of native and exotic plantings, extends over several levels and melds into the forest, which New Zealanders call ‘the bush’. The garden has featured in magazines (New Zealand Gardener, Weekend Gardener and My Home and Garden) and in the book, Great Gardens of New Zealand, by Derek Fell.Birds love it! Tui and kaka dispute the treetops, weka and, increasingly, kiwi patrol the paths. What a thrill it was when a Department of Conservation worker pointed out to me that a kiwi had left his/her calling card in the middle of one of my garden paths!As for me, I love gardening, kayaking, cooking, travelling and languages. Stewart Island has been a preferred holiday destination for almost all my life and my permanent home since 2000. Helping you to make the most of your time on this beautiful island is my focus. I meet you at the ferry or air terminal and take you back at the end of your stay.My Cairn terrier, MacPherson, enthusiastically joins me in extending A Hundred, Thousand Welcomes! and maintaining the special blend of Scottish and Kiwi hospitality that so many of Glendaruel’s guests have commented on.
