  • Both property and location were excellent

    Both property and location were excellent. Short walk to Oamaru's Historic District, shops and restaurants. We felt at home during our stay enjoying the beautiful views of the Pacific while having coffee in the kitchen and on cooler evenings enjoying the wood fireplace. If you're a history buff this is the house for you. Character and charm describes this home! Thank you Christine and Ken for sharing your beautiful home with us. We'll take home many lovely memories!

    Great location - walking distance to historic area. Lovely view over the harbour. Fabulous set up. Didn't want for anything. Highly recommend and hope to stay again.
