  • Fantastic property

    Fantastic property. Well kept and cared for and the pictures are accurate. We enjoyed the fire and the house was cosily warm. Quality linen and beds and the bathroom and kitchen facilities were modern. Would happily stay here again when down that way.

  • Lovely quiet spot and very reasonable price for a 2 bedroom house...

    Lovely quiet spot and very reasonable price for a 2 bedroom house with modern amenities and all you need for a weekend away near the sea. Local restaurant Pipis was great - but is busy so you need to book it ahead to get a table. Local fish & chip takeaway place was great too. This was our 2nd stay here, and we have told lots of friends about it as it is the perfect spot to get away for a couple of nights and not too far from Wellington. Thanks Lisa!
