We love our place and aim to make your stay with us one of your best holiday memories. It's a real privilege to meet so many different people from New Zealand and overseas. We take our cue from you - just a quick hello or chatting for hours over a glass of wine!
Georgina purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Georgina chose Brightwater
Come and enjoy a slice of paradise in the sunniest spot in New Zealand.We fell in love with the view and you will too! Everybody says you can't take a photo to do it justice - we know, we've been trying for years! We designed and built our dream home and feel very lucky to be here.

Great host, Amazing experience
Gina is an excellent host, Clean and tidy property, Amazing Location. Excellent views, Not too far from the town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and looking forward to coming back in the summer.
Look forward to seeing you back at Golden Hills and hope all well with the family.
Beutiful bridal party evening before the big day
We absolutely loved this place, Gina is so friendly and accommodating with requesting a late check out, updating us via text of road closures on the day of arrival (flooding), even offering a lift up the hill in their vehicle if we couldn't make it. Place was very clean and views are breathtaking, perfect to watch the sunrise! Very private and all in all a wonderful last night as a single lady for my beautiful sister. Cooking facilities we found a little troublesome and I would suggest planning meals around it. I didn't read (likely my error) that there was no oven and struggled to get the microwave functioning as a convection oven like it was supposed to. Other than that not a single fault. Highly recommend. Amazing! Thankyou so much!!
Thanks so much Michaela - was lovely to share a bit of wedding excitement!
We certainly had a couple of days of crazy rain, but great that the sun was back for the wedding day. I will check out the microwave/oven.
All the best, Gina
Really great location, great accommodation. Wish we were able to stay longer. Will be booking in again.
wonderful relaxing stay
this is a great location, wonderful views and hosts and in the country but so close to everything. Lovely clean cosy home with the use of a great swimming pool.
Best place for family..Best relaxing place ever...
Hi, holidays are so important and we aim to make them special here!
So glad you had a great family time.
Lovely property - great view
The property had everything we needed. It was in a beautiful location, very peaceful - up on a hilltop with great views down to Nelson Bay. Lovely outdoor seating/ eating area which took advantage of the view. Very comfortable bed and very quiet location. Perfect for a relaxing weekend break to get some fresh country air. The kitchen was well equipped. The owners were pleasant and helpful.
Thanks so much for your review. Very happy that everything was great for your stay :)
The cottage has a folder of info detailing the locals' secret spots, river swims, bush walks, hikes as well as favourite cafes, restuarants, pubs and winerys. There is so much on offer for all ages and interests!
