About this Holiday House

Perch above the 4km long sandy beach of Porpoise Bay, waves rolling outside your windows. Cast your eyes across the 180 degree view. Rain or shine you cannot lose here, the window view is without equal on this bay. Private path to the beach. Come nestle in the cosy home we call CLOUD9. Enjoy the scenic area with a heritage rich from the whaling, logging and farming pioneers of yesteryear.Swim, surf, kayak, take bush walks and view the wildlife around you.Photograph the magnificence. Snug and cosy yet intimate with Mother Nature, inviting beach and endless vistas out your windows. Dogs must be leashed, or otherwise physically controlled anytime they are outside of the crib to prevent a devastating incident. Penguins rest and nest on the property. Abundant wildlife: Wee Blue penguin hide, Yellow-Eye penguin tend their chicks, Hector dolphin frolic. Each in their season. Every day presents a new glory, boredom is not an option, yet peace reigns. Don't forget your camera. Please don't forget your beach towels.

What a lovely cottage in a stunning setting. The property has all you need, well equipped and very clean. We really appreciated the load of firewood and kindling which we had to use despite it being summer! The views were amazing and we were enthralled at the Hectors dolphins surfing down and frolicking in the waves straight outside the cottage. The icing on the cake was our feathered housemates - after 10pm we would see one on the blue penguins scuttle across the lawn and a few minutes later we could here the excited calls of baby being fed. We thoroughly recommend this cottage and we will be coming back again.

Amazing spot, right on the beach. Great classic kiwi batch/crib. Super comfy beds. Sound of the sea and the fire crackling... soul food. Lots of surfers out when the wind dropped. Saw a yellow eyed penguin when looking at the petrified forest, which is fascinating. Would love to go back to this beautiful, special place.

Stunning location and comfortable crib - walks on the beach outside the door and plenty of penguin chatter to assure you they are flourishing in this beautiful spot. We booked for 3 nights and stayed an extra, and would very much liked a few more days - lots more to do, so we will just have to go back! Curio Cafe just up the road was excellent as well. Cloud9 had all we needed, comfy beds and good kitchen - fabulous views. Melissa was super quick to respond to our last minute booking and wonderful to deal with. All good!!
