Recently restored 2 brm plus sleepout, settlers cottage 10 min walk to town and lake, (2 mins by car). French doors and rimu floors compliment the retro deco. Large fully fenced rear section with lots of deck area, flat lawn and mature trees. You can also enjoy the outdoor fireplace next to the grape vine and large sun umberella over the outdoor table. Good heaters and full insulation mean you will be warm even on the coldest nights. We've recently installed a new gas water heating system too for great showers. There's a new Queen bed in one bedroom and a double bed in the other plus a cot and baby hammock hook if you need it. Lounge has a fold out couch. There's also a sleep out with double glazing and full insulation, that has bunk beds- nice if you need a break! Most suitable for one or two couples on their own looking for a cosy romantic get away or a family with small children (they'll love the trampoline).- no teenage parties please..=)

This is a typical kiwi bach with a mixture of original and new. A perfect place to chill.

Dogs welcome provided they are housetrained and don't jump on the couches or beds. This is a very special place for us so please only guests who are willing to treat it as their own..=)

Note theres no TV, but you are welcome to bring your own and plug it in. But we find it nicer without one - you start having conversations...

Mountain buggy available if needed.

    It was perfect for us- cute and tucked away. No views though, but fairly near to town

    Tidy little cottage that had the basics, which is all we wanted. Handy to town with quiet surroundings that we all enjoyed, including the dog!
