 Thanks for the great stay! 

Beach End Cottage Collingwood

 We loved this house! It has a warm homely feel and is so close to the beach. It's like you're in your own little haven yet, with a short walk, you're in Collingwood. We loved that there was no TV! There were plenty of games to keep the kids occupied and my youngest was so excited to find the feijoa trees in the garden that were dropping their fruit. There is nothing modern about this house (well not much!) and that is its charm. What is there is quality. We would definitely book again. 

Gunado - a cosy kiwi bach.
