  • We liked this property very much

    We liked this property very much. It did meet our expectations in almost every manner. The location is stunning - we loved the views of Golden Bay. At the same time bear in mind that the place is low key and that it does not bring luxury. Having said that, baking bread in a wood fired oven is an experience that sets the Strawberry Cottage apart from the rest!

  • Lovely place in a remote location

    Lovely place in a remote location. Loved the Aga. It could do with a few more games for times when the weather is wet!

  • Had a fantastic time at Strawberry Cottage

    Had a fantastic time at Strawberry Cottage. Wonderful location and we have seen more birds than anywhere else! Far enough away from the touristy stuff and central to all the nice walks and sites of Golden Bay. Nature pure and so relaxing! We will be back!!

  • Very peaceful place away from the mad rush - and still close...

    Very peaceful place away from the mad rush - and still close enough to get to cafes, shops and beaches. Loved the native bush and birdsong.
