This two bedroom cottage is a short stroll (approx 4 minutes) to Riversdale Beach, which is patrolled during the summer. The cottage is situated between the 9 hole golf course, which welcomes visitors, and the local store where you can get coffee and takeaways.

An additional bonus for readers is an open fire in the winter and the fact that you will be dining on Denis Glover's kitchen table. There are two lovely decks front and back of the property to make the most of morning and afternoon sun. The sun streams in in the morning for a sunny breakfast on the deck.

Real privacy around the back of the section with ample room for kids to run around on the grass lawn, or to laze under the fruit trees.

Great walking, golfing, swimming, boating, fishing, diving, lazing around break away to be had.

Special conditions: 2 nights minimum rental.

  • The house is a simple bach in true Kiwi style

    The house is a simple bach in true Kiwi style. It is well supplied with everything needed for a holiday. The weekend we were there it was very sunny and we were able to breakfast outside on one side and enjoy the afternoon sun and birdlife on the other.

    Had a nice relaxing weekend, house had the basics that we needed. Four stars is only because it could perhaps have been a bit cleaner when we arrived. Overall had a great time and would come again.

    Great place to stay, will book again. Would suggest fixing the steps on to the deck - top step is a bit high.

    Had what we needed, didn't expect anything flash as one of the more economical properties. Comfy beds, warm and nothing lacking.
