  • Awesome hideaway

    Awesome hideaway. It was fun to use the wood stove. It rained a lot but we enjoyed ourselves.

  • Strawberry Cottage was an incredible place to stay

    Strawberry Cottage was an incredible place to stay. We were there for 5 nights over Christmas with our 5 and 6 year old and we all loved the peace, the views, the wildlife and the bach. The cottage was clean and had all that we needed for our stay - if you're looking for a place with all the modern tech and kitchen gadgets them maybe it's not for you, but if you love a true kiwi Bach then it's PERFECT. We'll be back, we loved every minute here.
