  • This is the most beautiful property in one of the most amazing...

    This is the most beautiful property in one of the most amazing locations we have ever visited. It is a true gem and was amazingly comfortable and convenient. The cottage had everything we needed and the location was perfect. We very much enjoyed the comfortable bedroom, views from the living room and kitchen and the warm fireplace. The gardens and porches were fantastic as well. We loved staying there.

  • Beautiful cosy house

    Beautiful cosy house. Very clean and comfortable. We were mostly up in the clouds for our stay, which was very 'heavenly'. However, when the clouds did clear, there were amazing views. Close to Sandfly Bay which is beautiful and only 15 min to Dunedin city centre. Would stay again for sure.
