    Amazing location and fabulous old school house - the isolation and no power, etc is a real drawcard for those who like more basic accommodation. Could have stayed for days!

    Classic kiwi bach style accommodation, but with a twist - such a cool wee building - with everything you need. Amazing spot - felt like we were a million miles away from the rest of the world. Great beach. Good for diving. Excellent walks. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

    Very unique property and perfect for our small group (4 adults and 2 kids). The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the place was clean. Great hiking trails and a private beach. Would definitely go back again.

    Little Port Cooper School was cozy well equipped little hut set in an award winning location. So close to Christchurch yet it gives you a real feeling of solitude.
