 Location was is a short walk of all the facilities. The premise was clean and exactly what bookabach is all about. It was a perfect holiday bach not fancy but all was there and clean and working. I sleep like a log. 

 Good location with reference to the town, space between the two cottages could be better defined. 

 Although the property was very close to the ferry terminal there is a short steep walk up the hill. But if your in Stewart island it's probably not the only hill you'll climb... 

 Great place to stay, accommodated 8 of us perfectly, couldn't have asked for better, and just a short walk to the ferry 

 Very warm and comfy cottage, with everything we needed, peaceful though handy to town. Someone had let you down a bit on cleaning the dishes in the kitchen after themselves! But I guess you can't really clean up after everyone without it turning into a motel.
