  • The cottage is beyond beautiful

    The cottage is beyond beautiful. It has a beautiful lawn and garden, with trees and tuis and other native birds who fly by. It sits right on the edge of the river with the most magnificent views, perfect to enjoy a glass of wine on the covered deck at night while the bbq is going. Everything you need is there. The bedroom downstairs has pretty French doors leading on to its own patio overlooking the river. It truly is a magical place. We even enjoyed toasted marshmallows over the outdoor fire.
