About this Holiday House

Situated close to the new Kawatiri Coastal Trail this modern cottage is set in a rural landscape and boarded by a strip of native bush. It has covered decks which run along 2 sides of the house with access from the living area and one of the downstairs bedrooms. Upstairs is a Queen bed with walk in wardrobe, bathroom and balcony with views of Cape Foulwind's Steeples rock formation and Carters Beach Bay. With a large lawn it beats any motel room. Only a 5 minute walk from Elley drive with access to Carters Beach, tennis courts and a 12-15 minute walk from Carter's Beach township. It includes great privacy but is only a 6 minute drive out of Westport. Please be aware that there may be livestock in the paddocks behind the cottage that we check on each day, we will try not to interrupt guest when we do this.

Most helpful host. Good home to unwind. Comfortable, clean and homely, I was surprised how warm the house was, but still had to have the log burner on to make our stay special. Great situ, for getting to Punakaiki, which is spectacular. A short drive to Denniston, the coal mine which was most interesting. Loved the Weka family which patrolled the house but were vigilant not to encourage them with food. All windows had great views with greenery and amusing sheep to watch from the kitchen window. We hope to be back. Even though it was forecast to rain the three days we were on the west coast, it was surprisingly warm and sunny for the majority of time. We did experience West Coast rain down pours, but then quickly had sunny spells. Possibly Westport has a micro climate. Thank you.
Response from Owner
Thanks so much Rhona for you entertaining comment. Glad that you enjoyed the Weka, they really are a treat. Thank you also for leaving the property in such a tidy condition - really appreciated it.
Great value for money, lots of room and well equipped. Very peaceful with lovely views of the mountains, and birdsong in the nearby reserve. Phil and Sonya were very helpful in sorting TV issues. Well situated for Denniston Plateau, Charleston and Cape Foulwind walkway. Hope to stay there another time.
