We have a lovely detached place at the back of our home that has a cottage look about it with its covered veranda. It is a cosy, compact space and very comfortable.We have added an alcove at one end of the veranda and added a fridge,microwave, kettle and toaster. We have a wonderful bath house if you would like to enjoy an out side bath in the evening and look up at the stars, feel a breeze on your face and hear the sound of the surf.

There are bikes available to use.

This is a beautiful part of the world where people are friendly and engaging. If you love the outdoors then there is plenty on offer and I am sure you will enjoy your stay.

  • Only critisism was the noisy neighbours down the back on the night

    Only critisism was the noisy neighbours down the back on the night. Otherwise Steve loved the cottage. Host was very easy to deal with.

    Had the most gorgeous weekend, the cottage is something so special! It’s an absolute gem of a place to stay! My fiancé and I love staying here! The addition of a small kitchen area is perfect. Can’t wait to be back

  • HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Cute, cosy and romantic

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Cute, cosy and romantic. Literally a 2 minute walk from the beach. Wonderfully decorated! You can see a lot of time, effort and detail has gone into making this place a home. The HOT TUB was the highlight for me. I think we used it 3 times in the 2 nights we were there! Highly recommended for a relaxing & romantic getaway :)

  • Location is excellent

    Location is excellent. Very close to beautiful Sumner beach with amazing scenery. Sleep to the slight sound of the waves. The property is quaint, newly decorated, very clean, and smells wonderful. Make sure you enjoy the outside bath!!
