Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 8)
I am in my late 40s with Christian values, I love pottering around on the property & making things. I enjoy people & getting to know them, I treat people as friends. We have had overseas students for years & have loved sharing our beautiful country with them. But now it is time to share our cottage with others who want to explore & do activities around the area.
Grasslands_Cottage_59 purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Grasslands_Cottage_59 chose Hikutaia
This property is so peaceful & serene away from all the hustle & bustle of city living. Heading to the country is like stepping back in time. A time where people spent more time together with out lots of pressure & enjoyed each others company.
What makes this Cottage unique
This area is a really unusual place, as it seems in the middle of nowhere now, but back in its heyday it was the hive of activity with the railway next door, the ferry at the end of the road ,the stock yards across the road, the forests full of trees for boat building & the prospecting of gold and gum .

We would stay here again it was awesome
This place had a great feel and the kids loved that old game of "connect four". They didn't miss the tv at all.
Inviting traditional home in stunning area.
Nick and I received a wonderful welcome from Andrea making us feel immediately at home.
The cottage has everything you could want with an outdoor bath to die for, lovely way to end a busy day with a glass of wine stargazing!
All store cupboard basics provided, and I had my first go with a popcorn machine...brilliant! We were told to help ourselves to the garden produce, delicious cucumber, courgettes and figs making our evening BBQ even better.
Andrea is a delightful host and I could thoroughly recommend a stay.
It was truly a pleasure to host you both, thank you for looking after the cottage beautifully. I am so pleased you got to relax and enjoy your stay. Blessings.
I didn't stay at the property myself as I booked it for clients but Andrea was lovely to deal with during the booking process, would defintiely book with her again.
Very spacious cottage. Beautiful surroundings and so convienently located. Great end to a great trip. Andrea was a great host and the local pub was brilliant. No one can help you enough!!
