  • The location was stunning but the access was terrible

    The location was stunning but the access was terrible. My husband is very fit but he had difficulty getting our suitcases up to the cottage. It's very slippery when wet & would not be great for anyone who is elderly or unfit. The DVD player did not work unfortunately & the cooking hob was not really adequate but luckily there was a Weber BBQ to cook on. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay.

  • The Bay Cottage is situated on a hill overlooking Te Wahapu Bay

    The Bay Cottage is situated on a hill overlooking Te Wahapu Bay. It is a very peaceful and quiet location, walking tracks nearby . Tui birds and other bird life all around. Lovely deck off the dining area, with roll-up windows to protect from wind or rain. The cottage is very cozy, like a cabin. Stone fireplace, window seat. Kitchen is well supplied with everything you’ll need. Sleeping area is upstairs with comfortable bed. There are games and books if so desired. We enjoyed our stay!
