About this Holiday House

A quaint 1930's cottage on the edge of the forest. Small, simple and oh so cute! Well equipped for great family holidays or quiet retreats. Scarborough Terrace runs along the back of the original village. It's peaceful yet convenient location means you are within a leisurely stroll of everything. Sited on a large, sunny section bordering Dog Stream Reserve. The front lawn is flat, and large enough for big family games. From the private back garden you have direct access to the forest, stream and trails. The path has recently been upgraded to allow bike access straight onto the forest trails. The cottage includes a separate living room with a log burner and french doors to a deck overlooking the forest and accompanying bird life. The kitchen is very small and basic but well equipped. The small bathroom is clean and tidy with a great shower and the toilet is separate and also new. There is also a small laundry area that you walk through to the toilet. Inside the cottage are 2 bedrooms. Bed 1 has a Queen bed and the second small bedroom has a comfortable double/single bunk set. The sleepout is just a few steps from the back door. It sleeps 4 in a comfortable queensize bed and a single bunks. We have recently insulated and relined the sleepout and put in a set of french doors. A good selection of games, books, DVDs and CDs are provided. There is also a PS2 with a selection of games for your use. Sports equipment is found in the garage, including cricket, volleyball and badminton. There are 4 bikes of various sizes: 2 adult sized, one suitable for a child aged 10yrs plus and one smaller bike for around 6-9yrs. Generally we welcome pets, but please talk to us first. We are also happy to have extras in tents at times so please enquire. Please note the property is not fully fenced and drops steeply into the forest at the rear.

Francis Carmine
Superb location with convenience to town and forest trails. You will need to apply insect repellent outside as proximity to stream means sandflies, standard NZ stuff. Nice little house, comfortable and warm. Would love to have stayed longer.

Gorgeous kiwi bach. Loved our stay with 9 of us, 2 adults and seven 15 year olds. The boys walked into town easily and amused themselves and the adults had a lovely break. The house was perfect, bird song, peace and quiet. We were able to take our dog and she loved it. Will be back.
Stephanie McLafferty
Fantastic holiday house oozing charm and character. Perfect place to relax and unwind with the family- kids loved it, grandparents loved it, we loved it. Beautiful spot backing onto the forest, very tranquil with plenty of space for the kids to run around. We loved all the books and board games available- just needed more time to make the most of them! The place was tastefully decorated in keeping with the character of the house. We would love to stay again.
