Stayed December 2021

Gorgeous wee spot, couple nice walks close by. A village of cottages yet you don’t even hear or see other people. Overton has a hearty fire place, the water pressure is fantastic too! Great views overall 10/10

Stayed October 2021

The overall cottage experience was comfortable and cosy, nestled in the bush and surrounded by native birds and the odd sheep!! Very holiday feel and relaxed vibe! We cosied up and enjoyed the fire, appreciated the Scrabble set on offer (and made use of it!) and thought the book sharing idea was novel and thoughtful. We also appreciated the local walks info and made use of one of them! The view was stunning and the location was convenient. We felt spoilt and that we'd certainly had and enjoyed a mini break away. We'll be back!! Thank you. N & G.

Lovely cottage, we had arrived an the person who meet us to give us the key, had been there abit earlier and turned the heater on so it wasn't to cold. It had been windy and some rain. It was lovely and comfortable to walk into. So thank you. It was lovely to hear the bird songs in the morning and evening. Enjoyed the walking track to the metal rhino etc. Would come back.

Beautiful peaceful getaway nestled in native bush. An ideal place for a romantic retreat or to escape the hussle and bustle of modern day life. Wake to native birds greeting the day, take a stroll to Akaroa or have a soak in the spa bath and relax on the balcony with a good book. We found our happy place.

A fabulous place to stay. Everything you need, a fire place and a spar bath. Heaven. A short walk to town. Loved it.

Lovely bush setting with fantails and wood pigeons living around us. The cottage has a lovely fireplace making it very cozy. A good distance from town although the main road is quite busy for walking and cycling.
