    This is the second time we stay at Hart Cottage and we loved it. well decorated, feels like home, comfortable and clean. We also love the rural feeling with nature all around you, despite being a couple of minutes drive from Richmond malls, shops and all other attractions in the area. Highly recommended.

    Cottage well appointed, clean, stylish decore, a well equipped cottage superior bedding and chattels. The rural outlook was delightful as were the pukekos, quail and tuis. Location was what we wanted, peaceful, close to Richmond, airport and parks. We will be booking again but for longer.....

    The cottage is in a quiet setting very convenient to shops and the highway to Abel Tasman and to the south. This was the best equipped bach we have been in in our NZ adventure....modern showers and kitchen...good WiFi....great bird songs from outside.....lots of open space in the house to relax in...as opposed to some 'bachs' that are cramped efficiency units. Would very definitely stay here again.Great for families or couples. And the host's attention to detail...wow!
