Description

  • Access to day and overnight walking tracks within Glenfern Sanctuary.
  • Private wharf, floating dock and boatshed 50m from cottage
  • Boat club/restaurant and store just 10 mins walk, set among mature gardens and lawns

The newly refurbished, self contained Glenfern Cottage is positioned overlooking Pt Fitzroy and is set in a private location among mature gardens and lawns. You have immediate access to the private wharf, floating deck and boat shed down the path in front of the cottage, where kayaks are available for your use. The Pt Fitzroy store and boatclub/pub are a brief 10 minute walk (or kayak) away, and other day and o/n walks are easily accessed from the property.

This is an ideal holiday home for those with a boat for fishing and exploring the harbour and coastline, or as a base from which to explore the island on foot or by vehicle. Glenfern Cottage and Fitzroy House are both located within Glenfern Sanctuary; a 240 ha fenced, pest controlled restoration project where you can experience some of New Zealand's wildlife at its best. Guided or self guided walks are available which include access to the crown of a Kauri tree via a swing bridge.

Special conditions: Glenfern cottage is situated immediately next to Fitzroy House. Fitzroy House is the original homestead on the property and has been extensively renovated and refurbished; offering spacious living areas, functional modern kitchen, 5 large bedrooms (2 with ensuites) and separate bathroom. This homestead sleeps 8+. Available for holiday rental summer, or rent both the cottage and homestead for large family get togethers, weddings or corporate functions.

  • A great relax place to stay

    A great relax place to stay. In the backyard jetty, Iots of fish and sea creatures for my kids to discover. Can stay in the cottage everyday, no need to go out. Bring plenty of food coz is no shop close by. We will definitely go back every year. Special thanks for Cliff, he is a very nice grandpa.

    Special location being based in the Sanctury and we loved all the bird-life. The view is fabulous, we caught snapper off the wharf, there's lots of great walks and endless things to do as well as all the peace & tranquility you'd expect. It was a perfect holiday and location and we loved the cottage.

  • This is a very special place to stay

    This is a very special place to stay. The most beautiful gardens and spectacular bird life due to the diligence of Scott and Emma who maintain the property and the surrounding native bush that is enclosed by a predator proof fence.The views are just the best nestled in the Fitzroy Inlet. And a jetty and mooring for boats. Just the best.
