This was great for our 3 generation family of 13 get-together and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The family all enjoyed being able to use the kayaks provided by the owner. The waterfront is one door away with views from the house over the harbour. The property is a comfortable kiwi bach and had everything we needed.
Nice house with lovely views across the bay and direct access to a little beach (via stairs). Large living areas, well equipped kitchen and nice outdoor seating. The 4th bedroom with with double bunk bed and single was a bit cosy for 4 adults. Recommend hiring extra kayaks from Raglan Kayaks and paddling around the coast - the house kayaks were good but quite small and not as comfortable for longer trips.
We had a lovely stay - the 4 kayaks were the highlight! It was a sweet cottage, a good size, sunny, with lots of character and an awesome view - pretty basic in terms of set up, but had everything we needed. We'd have liked to stay longer.
