  • The bach is very cute with everything needed

    The bach is very cute with everything needed. Couple of suggestions : A Rangehood in kitchen would help extract cooking smell and a ceiling fan in the bathroom. Other than that could not fault.

  • Super cosy cottage, even much nicer in reality than the photos! We loved...

    Super cosy cottage, even much nicer in reality than the photos! We loved staying there and there was a well equipped kitchen and beautiful garden. Conveniently located to go for the hike on Kaikoura peninsula, along the beach and close to town by car. Nice neighbourhood and quiet this time of year. To consider for others is that there were only two kitchen chairs (we were four) and that the bed sofa could have been more comfortable. Thank you for letting us stay at this lovely cottage.
