  • Absolutely lovely cottage

    Absolutely lovely cottage. My aunty and I stayed here for three nights and used it as a base to travel through the Sounds and the Marlborough area. Everyday we looked forward to heading back 'home' to the cottage; it's clean, cosy and spacious for the two of us. Great library of books and games for evenings in or rainy days. Its very quiet and peaceful which suited us down to the ground with a short walk to the water. Highly recommend, would for sure stay again. The puppy was a bonus.

  • Handward Cottage is our favorite place to stay

    Handward Cottage is our favorite place to stay. This was our third visit, and we would happily stay here again. The house is spotlessly clean and meticulously maintained; it is comfortable and had everything we needed. The setting is beautiful and quiet. I wish we could stay long enough to read the whole library of NZ books.
