  • Wow! What an amazing location

    Wow! What an amazing location. The view from the huge picture window in both the lounge and master bedroom is incredible and so peaceful. The only minor downside was the loud snoring from the permanent tenant downstairs! Certainly didn't ruin our stay though. The home is less than a ten minute walk into the village and has a private path down to a stony beach at the bottom of the garden - just magic!

  • Wonderful spot with such a view to die for! We couldn't stop...

    Wonderful spot with such a view to die for! We couldn't stop looking out at the view with boats coming and going. Lovely to be close to the bush, saw kiwi sign and heard 1 male kiwi from just down the road. Easy walking distance to town either via the beach or road. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

  • Stunning location, fantastic view couldn't ask for a better position

    Stunning location, fantastic view couldn't ask for a better position. Lovely being able to have a swim at the bottom of the garden and fish off the rocks. Large living area with plenty of room to relax. Has a very steep narrow driveway which meant we could not get our boat down to the house but other than this was a great place to stay.

  • This place has amazing views, simply breathtaking

    This place has amazing views, simply breathtaking. Great location, close to the village and set amongst the bush, so you also get the benefit of the bird life. The little walk to the beach from the property is great. Facilities and set up were excellent. The only downside was that there is a flat underneath which is directly below the master bedroom. Unfortunately we were kept away for the best part of the night by the tenants' TV, Such a shame :(

  • Comfortable with everything you could need

    Comfortable with everything you could need. Wonderful views which we could watch from sunrise to sunset. Birdlife around the property from diving gannets to a pair of Eastern Rosellas visiting each morning. Loved Russell, good dining. My hand painted Pet Rocks in The Cabbage Tree !! Definitely would love to stay here again
