Please note the cottage will be unavailable as a holiday rental after EASTER 2018. Therefore we will be accepting no bookings after this date.

Your peaceful, unhosted private accommodation awaits in the quaint Otago village of Toko Mouth.

Located just 1 hour from Dunedin, you'll discover a warm and inviting cottage after a country road driving experience through rural and forestry surrounds.

Situated on the historic Coombe Hay home block, you'll feel revitalized as you enjoy quality time with your family and friends. Together you can explore the natural Otago coastline, fossick in rock pools and along the beach, or try to name the amazing birds and wildlife that can be seen.

Toko Mouth village is a two minute walk and here you will find a playground, domain, tennis court, a hall which can be hired for functions and a byo bbq and bar area.

The Wangaloa and Toko golf clubs are nearby.

There are also some great fishing spots but you may have to spy on the locals to find the best spots.

The cottage is warmed by a wood burner. To keep the house nice and warm, you need to put wood into it - lots, not 1 or 2 pieces at a time but 5-8 pieces then close the wood burner door and when it starts to burn down - ADD MORE wood. There is plenty of wood at the cottage and it is there to be burnt,

"We all LOVED the house and want to keep coming back. It's an awesome location with a fantastic view of both farmland and the ocean. The house is lovely, with an awesome sunny deck. Toko Mouth has an incredible beach that is very walkable from the cottage."

Quoted from a group of guests and their children who stayed in 2016.

  • Location has amazing views of the beach and ocean

    Location has amazing views of the beach and ocean. Short walk to the beach. What seemed like a long gravel road from Milton was really only 15 minutes and well worth the drive. Unfortunately we arrived during an unseasonably cold weather event and cottage heating was not up to the task but more than adequate bedding was provided. The cottage kitchen was not as clean as we would expect and the oven was difficult to use but we're adaptable and the location and hosts were wonderful.

  • Very good accommodation with all the facilities

    Very good accommodation with all the facilities. Heaps of towels and hot water was bonus. Fire place with lot of fire wood, blankets and duvets in bedrooms helped a lot. Garage was helpful. There is everything what we want

  • A typical NZ Bach with great sea views

    A typical NZ Bach with great sea views. Immaculately clean, we would thoroughly recommend this for a quiet stay. Playground in the village for the kids, and sand pit in the garden and Simon took us on a great farm tour.
