cozy cottage in a stunning sourrounding

  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful place in a stunning surrounding. We spent 8 nights at St. Martin's Cottage. Kristin (the landlady) was always available for us with helpful hints and friendly advice. The cottage is comfortable, cozy, clean, very peaceful and quite. It is a private home, warmly and beautifully decorated. Excellent opportunities for day excursions, some of the top spots in South Island being just around the corner (geysirs). Always looked forward to be back at the cozy cottage and relax in the hot pool. The cottage has also an extra guest house specially suitable for kids, with an extra bathroom. We can definitly recommend St, Martin's cottage to discover Island and relax.
