  • A rustic private cottage.
  • Right by the sea, with fabulous views
  • Roomy, unique and different

This cottage is private, unique and different. The sea is right out the door and is a very safe swimming area. It is two storied and all three bedrooms are large and roomy with comfy beds. The large deck affords wonderful outside dining in the summer months. The wood stove means it's warm and cosy inside when it's colder. The house and it's situation is great for older children but it's not toddler safe.

'Heartwood Cottage' is uniquely situated close to the wonderful wildlife of Otago Peninsula. For golfers, the Otakou Golf Course, is five minutes away. The area is very quiet and private for those who just want to enjoy the tranquillity yet it's only 30 minutes from Dunedin and the city attractions. This a place to really 'get away from it all'.

Special conditions: Please respect the time and effort that has gone in to making this a very special holiday venue. Although it sleeps 11 people, there is only one bathroom with the toilet in the bathroom. Enjoy what has been created here and please sign the visitors book.

    We love this bach - it suits us perfectly. It was cold this time and we could have done with a heater in the upstairs bedroom but otherwise all good!

    We absolutely loved our stay at Heartwood! Made the most of the deck and the cosy fire. Loved the temuka dinnerware (a blast from the past!) and all the extras that made our stay so comfortable. We have already recommended to friends and family as a destination. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
