Enjoy staying in gorgeous Guthrie Cottage, in a quiet location on the beach-front with the waves almost lapping at your door. It's beautiful, immaculate and very tastefully appointed with your comfort in mind. Free Unlimited WiFi and Netflix. 2 quiet bedrooms with queen sized beds. The lounge has a sofa bed, so the cottage can accommodate 6. Sea views from main bedroom, lounge and dining. Gas central heating.

The kitchen is well equipped for longer stays, 4 hob, dishwasher and coffee machine or choose one of the local restaurants or cafes to dine at.

Bathroom features shower over the bath, vanity and toilet, heated towel rail for warm towels. Infinity hot water system. Shampoo and conditioner and body wash are included.

Linen is provided. Along with kitchen basics.

There is lots to do - relax in the cottage, enjoy the outdoors, walk in the bush or cycle around the coast. Swim out to the raft which is moored directly in front of the cottage in the summer time. Sip champagne in the outside two, as you look out across the Harbour to the flickering lights of Wellington City. Sit in the front garden or on the sea-wall and watch the Inter-islander ferries go by - if you are lucky you might see some Orcas which are regularly seen each year. Stroll down the beach to the village shops, cafes and restaurants.

The cottage is ideal as a romantic retreat or for a relaxing family holiday or a quick get away from the city.

Guthrie Cottage is a 25 minute drive or ferry ride from Wellington, and a base to explore the lower North Island. Catch the ferry to Picton and visit the South Island.

With the safe swimming beach at your doorstep, the bush at your backyard and stunning sunsets, Guthrie Cottage is the perfect place to stay .

  • WOW - the location was fantastic

    WOW - the location was fantastic. Opposite the cottage was a small walkway, the beach wall and the sea. Facing Wellington on the opposite side of the bay. Get the little ferry from Days Bay near Eastbourne to explore Wellington. You can use your Super Gold Card on the ferry and the buses between certain times of the day. We saved a lot of dollars doing this.

    Guthrie Cottage is beautifully situated, right on the promenade beside the beach . Walking distance of the village with shops and library. Fabulous sunsets from the garden. Very well equipped and comfortable

    We absolutely loved our stay in Guthrie Cottage! It’s such a peaceful and beautiful place - I was so sad to leave and hope we can go back next time we’re in NZ. I think this is now one of my favourite places ever!

  • Beautiful high quality house right on the beach

    Beautiful high quality house right on the beach. Beautiful view and very relaxing. The addition of an outside shower for sand and an outdoor bath were fantastic. The only drawback we found was there is a table for 4 people to eat at only and there were 6 of us.
