This quirky cottage is located diagonally opposite Government Gardens (Blue Baths, Museum, Events Centre and 9 hole golf course), and within 500m of The Polynesian Pools, Lakefront, Eat Street, Bus/Info Centre, Arts Village and Sulphur Point Walkway. The cottage has a new bathroom. The kitchen is older style, tidy and functional. Off street parking available for 2 vehicles. This house is ideal for those wanting to be located right in the heart of town, close to the action and yet still a short distance from the mountain bike trails. The cottage is 80 years old, basic and plain but tidy, with no frilly bits/modern gizmos. We provide free WiFi. The section is not ideal for very young families as it`s not fully fenced.

* Cleaning fee is required before your stay, we are happy to return it if the house is cleaned and left as you find it.

* Heating in winter is by log fire (firewood and fire lighting equipment is provided) There are column heaters in the bedrooms and dining room for extra warmth.

  • The cottage was indeed quirky, simple and clean

    The cottage was indeed quirky, simple and clean. Contrary to other reviewers, we did not find the house ideal for a young family, due to the security issues of children's bedrooms (with old-style window latches) fronting onto the street. At the time of our stay the atmospheric sulphur smell was particularly strong (the Government Gardens located opposite being thermally active), although the central location was great for coffees and eating out.

    Majorly recommend! This place is a very nice old character house in a great location with extremely helpful owners in Lani and Paddy. Good size for a family of four or five (with a bit of double-bed sharing or sofa sleeping).
