The large lounge/dining room has a WONDERFUL sea view through the lounge windows across the reserve.

Calvert cottage was built in the 1930s of native timbers and features Kauri kitchen, Matai floors and has a cute seaside cottage appeal.

It is large and the rooms are light and airy with every possible convenience, including flat screen T.V. video, DVD, stereo and books, games and jig -saws for cooler days and nights.

It has a log fire for winter time and offers out door seating and a bebeque in summer under the teees in the garden.

There is also a washing machine and clothes line.

BREAKFAST is available as an optional extra as I also own the neighbouring property and guests in the cottage are welcome to come to b/fast in the historic guesthouse if they wish? This is a truely 5 star b/fast and really worth the extra $20.00 cost per person, half- price for children.

The fully equipped kitchen with every convenience also allows you to look after yourselves if you wish?

  • We absolutely LOVED our stay at Calvert Cottage!! I actually just wanted...

    We absolutely LOVED our stay at Calvert Cottage!! I actually just wanted to move in forever. It's a delightful place with heaps of character, lots of space and very clean and well appointed. Marilyn was a total gem, she looked after us very well and made us the best caramel slice I've ever tasted. I'd go back today if I could!!!! Thanks Marilyn!

  • Great cottage just minutes walk to all the sites etc in Russell

    Great cottage just minutes walk to all the sites etc in Russell. Was great to come back each each day to wood burner fire. Definitely try the boat club around the bay. Was welcomed by locals and enjoyed a great steak ?
