Special Amenities

You will have beautiful garden views, and are welcome to use the upstairs deck to enjoy harbour views. The terrace outside your rooms is a lovely tranquil spot to read and relax. We have a good selection of books and DVD's for your enjoyment. We live upstairs but your space is quite private with your own entrance. Which means we are on site to assist with any local information to help you enjoy your stay.

Special Attractions and Activities Nearby

We are a 10 minute walk from the local cafe and the ferry to Lyttelton, (8 min. trip). Lyttelton offers a popular Saturday farmers market, along with a variety of quality cafes, and a good ferry service to transport you safely home. Many walking and biking tracks are just minutes from our door, also some lovely swimming beaches, golf course and tennis courts. We love our location and feel very lucky to live in Diamond Harbour. We know you will love Magnolia Cottage.

A perfect B/B. Peaceful and spotless. The breakfast was 5 star and enough for all day. Stayed 4 days and will return.
Thanks so much to Julie for being such a fantastic host. We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. Your breakfasts are just wonderful and we are going to miss them very much!. Julie made us feel very welcome. This B & B is a cut above the rest. You have your own space which is beautifully appointed. The bed was very comfortable and we were well taken care of. PS: Millie misses Ricco - she has been very quiet this afternoon! :) Thoroughly recommend.
Response from Owner
I really appreciate the comments Trish, thanks so much. It was an absolute pleasure to have you both & Millie come to stay with us, and we would love to have you back anytime. Ricco also, was looking down the stairs for Millie this morning, we both miss her. All the very best for 2018. Julie.
Wonderful B&B with very comfortable facilities. We stayed for two nights and had sole access to the downstairs area, which included our double bedroom, separate loo, separate bathroom with bath and shower, and, a living room with tv/cd player, tea and coffee making facilities and a half fridge. We also had access to the outside area where there were two options of a table/chairs set up - one on a small grassed area with an umbrella and another under the verandah. The facilities were all very clean and quite lovely with us having no hesitation in recommending a stay. A local coffee shop is 500m away. We enjoyed lovely walks, a ferry ride to Lyttleton the on to Quail Island for a fantastic day of history absorption and walking around the island, hot baths with the window open allowing the wonderful scent of jasmine to waft in. There was so much to do and not nearly enough time - mountain biking and walking featuring high on our list. Julie and Barry, our hosts, were exceptionally friendly, helpful and willing to offer any advice we needed over and above the informative leaflets/brochures available on site of the area. Breakfast was fresh fruit salad, cereal, milk, orange juice, toast and jam with a huge pot of tea and coffee. Loved out stay. Many thanks.
Response from Owner
Thank you so much for such wonderful feedback. We both really enjoyed to see you relaxing and utilising the place. So pleased you used the bath. It would be a great pleasure to have you come back sometime, although I know you are very busy and have overseas travel to look forward to. Many thanks & safe travels.
