Bushy Point is even better than it looks in the description. Set in an incredible piece of bush just outside Invercargill, I was amazed after driving through some clear cut farmland to find this little piece of heaven. If you love birds, tranquility, and old farm houses, this will suit you just fine. My room was beautiful with tui and bell birds flitting in and out of a small bird feeder outside. Ian and Jenny have an incredible vegetable garden, and will treat you to good conversation and a lovely breakfast. Jenny was even nice enough to suggest I make some sandwiches for a friend and I who were off to Stewart Island after with the leftover homemade (INCREDIBLE) bread, and tomatoes from their garden. Definitely make time for the bush walk - Jenny is very knowledgeable about the native plants and birds. I can't say enough about how lovely this place, and the experience of staying here was. Next time I'm in town, I'll be staying here - no questions!
