Clean & tidy unit at base of scenic Denniston

 Just like a home away from home. The property is located in a beautifully secluded setting adjacent to the private residence. With a fully equipped kitchen, an extremely comfortable bed what else can you ask for.

 Comfortable grannyflat type apartment with everything you need in a full kitchen, two TVs, comfortable bed with good linen, and lots of hot water in shower. Quiet, comfortable, spotlessly clean. Easy parking next to home. Lovely open garden and covered porch and deck for sitting, even if it rains. I would stay again and recommend it to friends. Hard to think of negatives: about 20min drive from Westport and no mosquito screens in bedroom for a hot night.

 The "bach" is nicely laid out in a very lovely piece of the West Coast. A real Kiwi situation in which to relax. Thanks heaps Toni & John
