  • Private romantic hideaway
  • Direct access to the beach track

This little gem is hidden on the hillside overlooking the beach and Taylors Mistake Bay. Plenty of beach time action to watch from the privacy and quiet of the front deck and lawn area but if you need a swim the path from the front garden leads you down to the safe surf beach. The classic cottage comes with off street parking but there are 60 steps down to the bach. The property is only suitable for those who are capable of stairs, however the access means you are totally private and away from the world. A perfect place to unwind and recharge! If you love coastal scenes, wonderful walking tracks, uninterrupted views, the noise of rolling surf this is the place for you!

Special conditions: Please note the stairs leading to the house are steep and may not be suitable for anyone who has difficulty walking down or up a steep grade.

    We loved staying here and will definitely return. We loved the rustic feel; it's definitely a typical kiwi bach :)

    If you like the simple things this is a great place to stay. Awesome location and very private. A good tidy up outside would do wonders and BBQ wasn't really useable.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks Andy glad you enjoyed the cottage its a pretty cool outlook. I have just today arranged the gardener to get back over there there has been a lot of rain and wind since his last visit and I agree the garden could do with a tidy up. We don't advertise the property as having a BBQ but guess you found one out the back that must be an old one of the owners. It would be a good addition to the rental though I'll mention it to the owners. Thanks for the feedback. cheers Clare

  • The location was stunning

    The location was stunning. Good walk from the track below house to Sumner. House was comfortable and all we needed. Very private. Would certainly stay again but think about exactly what we needed as lots of steps. Thanks for the opportunity to stay here

    This place is beautiful, the surf is a constant background noise that soothes, and you have an extremely clear unobstructed view of the bay and out to sea. On the downside, some of the outdoor furniture is falling apart and the hand rails around the property are likewise rickety. The steps down to the house are not for the faint of heart, moving my things up and down was plenty of exercise for the month. Overall, I absolutely adored the place and I'd recommend it highly to anyone wanting privacy

    Clean inside and well equipped with cooking essentials etc. The property would be difficult to access at night due to lack of lighting on the steep steps. Fantastic views and peace and quiet.
