About this Holiday House

Located 35km south of Kaikoura and 35km north of Cheviot is this cosy building that was once a classroom. Nestled alongside the Conway River, just off SH1 is where you'll find Conway River View Cottage. Surrounded by hills covered in bush, pine trees and native fruit trees you can stroll the property at leisure. Only 7mins away by car, you'll find the spectacular east coast beaches of Claverley and Conway Flat where you may see dolphins and seals. Inside the cottage is a log burner that keeps the entire place toasty warm (wood provided). There's freeview tv, dvd's (selection available), wifi which can be a bit in and out. There's also chrome cast for your convenience. A bluetooth compatible sound bar can be used for sounds .. I can't get radio reception. I've been told the bed is very comfy but that's personal preference. It's comfortable, private and Pet Friendly. I know how important it is to have your best friend with you.. I like to take my dog with me everywhere! The nearest shop is a 20min drive (Cheviot) Please, if there is anything you need, don't hesitate to ask. My aim is to make this a very enjoyable and relaxing break for you :)

Lovely cottage,very cosy but also modern inside with everything you need. The nearby beach is beautiful and we spotted lots of dolphins and seals. Thank you so much for allowing us to bring our dog. He loved exploring the property and swimming in the river.

A lovely cottage for two plus our dog. A downside is the closeness of SH1 and the amount of weekend travel noise, but fortunately it does drop off to only the occaisional vehicle during the night. The cleanliness of the cottage could be a little better and it is crying out for more shelves and hooks to put our stuff on. Some hooks by the door for coats, some shelves in the kitchen area to get tea/coffee/condiments etc away from the cooking area, some shelves in the bathroom for washbags/toothpaste etc, and some more storage in the bedroom other than the single 3-draw bedside cabinet and a single hanging rail. But the cottage size was perfect, we loved the exposed wood floors, the woodburner that is more powerful than a nuclear reactor, and the beautiful setting in a valley amongst the trees. You do need to come prepared with ALL food you will need unless you want a 1 hour round trip to the nearest shop, but that is all part of the fun. A lovely place to relax and do not a lot!!
Response from Owner
Hi Chris. I have taken onboard your recommendations. I aim to revamp the cottage over the next few months and invite you to come back again to an improved Conway Riverview Cottage. I really thank you for your honest opinion

Such a great place - we loved this cottage. It had everything we needed, was cute and with plenty of fenced area for our dog to roam and play. Also right next to the river and lovely for walks. Host was really warm and welcoming and we felt very relaxed - thanks Patrick and Liz.
