    A large proportion of narrow rough sheep track in on steepish country to walk in via coast. Challenging for our kids with packs. Fabulous views, location, service and experience.

    The old school house rocks! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at little port cooper and have already recommended it to others. Quite a few boaties in the bay on the weekend, but the evenings and Monday were absolute bliss when we had the place to ourselves. Fantastic location and the walk in was a huge adventure for our little friends (age 4 and 5). Nothing better than a cuppa first thing in the morning looking out over the water and watching the ships come in and out in the evenings.

    Wow, what a place! For a true get away from it all experience this was tops. We took some relatives from Denmark here for a true “kiwi experience” and it didn’t disappoint. Water was warm for swimming, easy achorage for the yacht, views really special, sheep wandering thru our camp etc. Walk in and out was all part of the experience. Hut is rustic so be prepared. Long way to the dairy also so pack well. Will definitely return as was a true great holiday experience.
