Sadly yes it is closed now. I guess the original owner moved back to NZ a little over a year ago. This really cool kiwi lady named Kat has been managing it since then, but now Kat is ready to move on too. The tourist business is basically non-existent so it's too hard to keep the place running. I was the only guest my second night. Too bad, really cool place.
Even though it is closed, if anyone sees this post and is headed that way in the near term, it's still well worth a knock on the gate if you're nearby. I'm sure Kat would hook you up with a place to crash if you promise to buy cocktails and entertain her with some good stories.
