Wonderful quintessential kiwi Bach. Clean, comfortable, cosy, well appointed, easy walking distance to shops with uninterrupted panoramic views over Halfmoon Bay.

We absolutely loved our time at Rose Cottage. A cute and cozy (our 'summer' weather was at times not too summery so we had to use the diesel fire on the odd day!) good old-fashioned bach. It's location is second to none, and was mentioned on by several people on Stewart Island when they learned where we were staying - they were very jealous! Lovely leather couch and chair in the living room, and with extra seating both inside and out you are totally coaxed into really relaxing and watching the bay (when you are not out and about). I see an earlier reviewer mentioned a 'soft bed' - which concerned me a little, as I am a bit fussy on that front, but let's just say that it any comment one makes in these reviews is always a subjective one, including my own. I found it to be very comfortable and I slept well, despite it being different to our own king slat bed. The bedding was superb, lovely linens, and a very nice duvet, with additional, very high quality blankets should it get really cold. As I mentioned the location is superb - a very short meander to the store, hotel and other shops, as well as easy access to other island walks. We didn't use the bikes, but should have, as would have got us a bit further afield, however I am sure that we will return another day to do those extra day walks. We would definitely love to return to Rose Cottage, and hope that the stars align so that one day we might be able to go back.

Lovely cottage with beautiful view. Great location. We really enjoyed our stay. Very relaxing. Simone very friendly and accommodating we were able to leave gear at the house while we were walking the Rakiura track. Thank you. We definitely plan to come back.
