Stayed December 2021

Our stay was very relaxed. The house was excellent and well presented it has everything you need and more. We would definitely go back.

Stayed October 2021

Property was lovely well equipped kitchen for a larger family group. Very homely.

Stayed May 2021

We were after a few relaxing days away, and this certainly delivered. From the moment we arrived the house was warm and inviting (thanks for popping the heaters on!). We found everything we needed in the kitchen when it came time to cooking, and enjoyed spending time at the table watching the birds out the window. We were spoiled on our last morning to have our morning coffee watching a pair of Kererū! Everything was within walking distance, perfectly located for a walk down for coffee or dinner.

Stayed April 2021

Loved staying at this house. Beautiful views and amazing bird life that kept us entertained whilst we enjoyed a drink on the deck. Close to the township. Very cosy home away from home.

Stayed April 2021

The property was really lovely. Comfy and cosy and had a nice nautical theme running throughout. The kitchen is very clean and modern as is the bathroom. Great fire that kept us cosy and warm when the temp fell. Great offstreet parking for our cars and jetski - all fitted easily in the parking area.

Stayed February 2021

Awesome house, so clean and well maintained. Sofa beds really only for kids :)

Stayed October 2020

Beautiful property, perfect for our family trip away!

Stayed August 2020

This property is so comfortable, spacious and attractive - just right for our family. It really was 'home away from home'. A really nice log burner with good quality wood that lasts a long time. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating, a pleasant walk down to village but also good parking. The house a peaceful rural outlook on one side and a view of the ocean from the front. Love the yachting theme throughout. A lovely place to relax over shared meals, read and play board games.
