Beautiful cottage right on the water front, set in well maintained gardens. Quite and peaceful surroundings, perfect for our six night stay.
Truly beautiful cottage, very prettily decorated and with everything one needs. We had a lovely peaceful stay there and really look forward to returning. It is extremely peaceful, with a very serene outlook over the water.
Stunningly peaceful location yet so close to civilisation. Felt a million miles away from Auckland. Beautiful place. We'll be back!
What a wonderful cottage and spot. We will be going back again.
This cottage was idyllic. We were both so happy to have stayed at such a scenic and peaceful setting. We wish we had stayed longer. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Quiet, peaceful and beautiful surroundings away from, but close by the big city. Great value and amenities.
