 The property was in close proximity to the ferries, local boating transport and was in easy walking distance to the township. It is situated away from any 'town' noise. The cottage is well furnished and comfortable with a lovely garden in which to have breakfast, lunch etc... The local fish and chip shop is about 100metres away and does quite good fish and chips... 

 This place felt like a home away from home and we loved staying here and all the little touches including tea and cake on our arrival, a piano and toys for our son, and the tranquil garden out the back. Not too close to town but the track at the bottom of the road was great. 

 My mother and aunt Cindy absolutely loved your place. They mentioned it fondly as the nicest of all the places they stayed at in New Zealand - and they stayed at some *gorgeous* places during the part of the trip where we were together. They also spoke very highly of their hosts! 

 Really friendly and helpful owners. Great and fun little place to stay. Good location. 

 We loved Rose Cottage. Perfectly positioned, very well equipped and really homely and comfortable. Will never be able to go past it if travelling South again. We were made to feel so welcome.
