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.

Special conditions: I would appreciate you leaving the place as you found a tidy condition and please treat our home with respect.

  • Cutest little cottage ever

    Cutest little cottage ever. Perfect location less than a block from the beach. Highly recommend trying the crab eggs benedict at the cafe by the beach

  • The location is great

    The location is great. It is quiet, close to the sea where you can walk, and close to a bus to go into Christchurch. The room is very small and the eating area is outside so it can be cold depending on the weather.
