A lovely little cottage with 2 bedrooms - double and single in one and double in second. Lovely old fashioned feel with armchairs in front of the fire and sea and bush views from every room. Two deck areas for sitting and looking at the view. Modern kitchen area with all you need. It is not warm in winter but is well supplied with heaters and the fireplace and beds have electric blankets. There are also plenty of smaller throws for covering knees when sitting. It was lovely to be able to use the kayaks at the small private beach and explore the little coves. We heard kiwi at night as well which was a highlight. Overall a lovely spot for a relaxing, quiet break. thanks to the hosts who looked after us well.
