Traditional bach in lovely location
The property was warm and cozy, a traditional old farm cottage that is like a traditional bach (as opposed to a modern house). The kitchen had everything we needed. The grounds - it’s a small farm - were great for relaxing, going for walks and having our dog with us - there’s a lovely walk around the bays, the owner of the farm let us walk on the farm property around the bats and up a ridge on the peninsula. We also mountain biked for a day on Queen Charlotte track from Miseltoe Bay to Anakiwa and hiked a section of Mt Stokes at the end of the sound. We also ate muscles taken from the bay for dinner one evening (superb, massive and juicy!). The property owner/manager lives in a small cottage behind the house but was not in the least bit intrusive on our space and was friendly and nice to chat with.
The only down side was we asked to bring our dog but at no point prior to arriving were we told that she would have to stay outside. If a dog is not allowed inside this ought to be communicated prior to guests making a booking as, in our case, we wouldn’t have booked the property if we had known this from the outset given our dog lives with us almost 24/7 - she comes to work with us, lives in our home, etc.
This said, we still thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the owner/manager was friendly and welcoming and we have no complaints.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
All of us really enjoyed our stay. The house was lovely, we liked the open plan of downstairs, there nearly always a cool breeze. The surrounding area was really neat to explore as well. Would come back for another visit
Peaceful & Relaxing
Absolutely loved staying here! Wish we had of stayed longer.
Only thing that would have been handy to note is the farm animals around and that dogs were not allowed inside. (Only because we ideally wanted a place that allowed pets)
Other than that - super relaxing and private with everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again 😊
Location is fabulous! Great farmland to walk around and explore

We loved the location - very peaceful, farm & bush outlook with water views, sun all day and more sheltered than elsewhere. Comfortable house with everything we needed. Great to have ramps and a downstairs room for one of us with lesser mobility. We had a very relaxing time thank you .
This is a great place to stay with a well fenced section for the family to enjoy.
This is a great place to stay with a well fenced section for the family to enjoy. This is a very unique Holiday Home as it is in the Sounds and is quite secluded, but at the same time is handy to all the great spots. Thanks for having us.
