Peaceful, immaculate, spacious. A delightful place to stay. As others have said the photos don’t do it justice - there is a real warmth and comfort in the house. Highly recommend and Diane delightful to deal with

Response from Owner
Thanks for staying at the Cottage, it was a pleasure to have you here and hope to see you back in the future. Diane :)
Boathaven Cottage was a fabulous set-up in a great location with amenities PLUS! Everything you could possibly need was provided. The accommodation is even better than the photos depict. We were two couples travelling together and the space, privacy and convenience of two bathrooms was perfect. And the Cottage was spotlessly clean! Mapua is a lovely seaside village ( a wee mecca!) and everything is in easy walking distance. The surrounds are peaceful, the morning chorus and birdsong just magic! Book it! Great value for money, you wont regret it.
