About this Holiday House

Fabulous views over HalfMoon Bay and out to the Titi Islands. Watch the sun come up over the water from the deck (or bed!) and experience the island's birdlife from any room, day and night. A comfortable, renovated (in 2019) but character family cottage with original charm but modern convenience and located to allow you to experience all the Island has to offer. A short walk to shops, hotel and ferry, minutes from Bathing Beach and close to Church Hill restaurant. Kamahi Cottage is an unforgettable delight. From the deck and sunroom, almost everything the island has to offer can be glimpsed. Bush birds such as kaka, tui, bellbird, tomtit, kakariki, wood pigeons, fantails come and go with the seasons; seabirds such as the great mollymawks, the excitable terns, oystercatchers and skua’s come and go with the weather; on summer nights the calls of the little blue penguins that nest below in the cliffs and bush can be heard. Out to sea, beyond the heads, the illusion of the ‘Two Sisters’ lie head to head as if trapped in time and myth. Behind these, Ruapuke and the coast of Southland appear seemingly from nowhere. The wonderfully varied shapes and colours of fishing boats arrive and depart with the tide. The sun rises out of the sea, the full moon lifts over Lonnekers Beach, and at the suggestion of rain, countless rainbows emerge.

Fantastic house to rent for your stay on Stewart Island. Amazing view to wake up to each morning with friendly kaka that drop in to say hello. Easy walking distance to the shops and pub (yummy blue cod). We even saw a kiwi in the bush at night only 100m from the house. The house itself was fully stocked with everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and sheets / towels were fresh and clean. Great water pressure in the shower. Just one wee minor gripe that the bathroom door didn't shut very well but other than that were were extremly pleased that we booked Kamahi Cottage and will definitely be back again
Response from Owner
So glad you had a great time - it is a magic place. Thanks for the tip about the door - I have a handyman on the way

Gorgeous little cottage, cosy, with amazing views, brilliant location close to everything. We were entertained by up to five endangered Kaka at one stage, one of which will knock on the window for food, they love peanuts/apples. We enjoyed the walks and a trip to Ulva Island is a must, walk to bathing beach 10 min, Fushia walk, Traill park and bathing beach track for Kiwi. We saw Kiwi a short stroll from the cottage on both nights (red cellophane in the draw for your torch). Stewart Island is a truely amazing place a glimpse into the way things were. If you get a clear night the stars are next level. Highly recommend this cottage, thanks Niki.
