  • Beautiful cedar bifolding doors open onto a sunny deck

Entwhistle Cottage has been rebuilt with the same compact proportions of the original working man's cottage but reworked to make the most of the space and light. The kitchen, dining, living are all open plan looking out to the sunny courtyard. The small bathroom is lovely with black and white tiles and some vintage touches. The whole cottage is tastefully furnished with character and kiwiana touches.

We are happy to cater for families with two singles in the second bedroom(that can be made into a king). We also have a toy box, a fenced courtyard and a small park right opposite. Entwhistle Cottage would also be the perfect, romantic spot for a honeymoon stay.

We have free WI-FI and are also able to offer free-range eggs from our own hens when available. There is also tea, coffee and sugar. Parking is free on the street outside the cottage.

Special conditions: The price is for two people. $20 for each extra adult, $15 per child. 2 night minimum. Happy to take a one night booking if I have a one night gap between bookings. There are a few of these available over our summer season already so please inquire! Inquire about long term rates.

  • Gorgeous cottage in a great location

    Gorgeous cottage in a great location. Our son loved the toys and the park over the road. We were all very cosy during a wet few days. Walking distance to town and great local pub. Immaculately clean and well equipped. Highly recommended.

    The property is gorgeous and we loved to see the photos of the reconstruction. There were toys for our children (such a treat after a long drive to Christchurch!), there was fresh milk & eggs in the fridge, the house is fully stocked with lots of little extras you appreciate when you are cooking & eating in (oil, plastic wrap, tupperware containers), it had lots of detergent, toilet paper, etc. It was like vacationing in your own home. The beds were so comfortable too.

  • Fantastic, spacious, contemporary furnished cottage with lovely outside deck

    Fantastic, spacious, contemporary furnished cottage with lovely outside deck. Lots of extras to make your stay feel very homely. Despite being very central (lovely walk along river to get to CBD) the cottage is on a very quiet road. Didn't want to leave.
