Just wonderful and great value for money.

  • 5 of 5

Just wonderful and great value for money. A very peaceful retreat with bush walks and plenty of space. It was very restorative. The owners has given real attention to detail - knives are sharp, pans are good, beds are comfy. Highly recommend Ellenglaze!

Ellenglaze is an absolute Gem.

  • 5 of 5

Ellenglaze is an absolute Gem. Our family of 4 stayed for two nights and just loved it. The property is amazing. We enjoyed a beautiful walk, a game of badminton and I am pretty sure, we heard a couple kiwis after dark. A must stay !

Unique beautiful cottage. Very clean and had everything we needed. We loved exploring the pond and bush walks on the property. Felt very private and special. Just a few minutes from amazing beaches, can't wait to come back.
