We really enjoyed our stay at this house-it was perfect for two families. The house was full of quirky charms and we were warm and comfortable. Our kids loved having the kayaks to use. The house is in a fantastic location, with beautiful views across the water.

Former owner and repeat holidayer here - I love Pounawea in general and this house specifically. Hayden is doing a fantastic job on the upkeep of this characterful, charming, old house and has provided all the mod cons to make for a very comfortable and and easy stay. With five effective bedrooms (counting the downstairs lounge) the house is fantastic for extended family coming and going over a long booking, which is house we used it. The supplied kayaks are a big bonus. We did lots of kayaking, cockle gathering and eating, trips to other beaches and sitting around enjoying the ever-changing view over the estuary. We appreciate that bringing our own linen and doing our own cleaning keeps it very reasonably priced. Plenty of cleaning equipment and supplies provided makes it easy too.
