Te Awanga Cottages - Coastal and Contemporary

 What a neat spot!!! Cottage is lovely and very nicely appointed and clean. Perfectly located for the cycle trails. They were are so much fun. Thank you for the lovely bottle of wine. Had a fantastic stay. 

CUSHLA COTTAGE IN UNIQUE SUNNY NELSON.

 The cottage was private and well-appointed. Bed and bedding very comfortable and a great night's sleep had. Pleasantly surprised by the thoughtful touches of flowers and fruit on arrival. Also impressed by the small luxurious touches such as quality hand wash and personal products. This is a property where the owner obviously takes great pride in going the extra mile to provide guests with a very lovely stay. Only negative is that it's quite a walk into town but it's all even ground.
