This property is all that it says it is then MORE! If your looking for a rental in this area, Bluff or Invercargill and surrounds and its just the two of you then this is the place to stay! It is close enough to stores if you need to get supplier but I'd say get yourself organised with your food and drinks and just arrive as you will not want to leave, except for a walk on the beach. The kitchen is totally set up for self catering and every detail is thought of. The bathroom is hotel style, new and pristine clean with underfloor heating even! The elevated queen bed is a great idea so you can lay in bed and check out the views. Wood box fire with loads of firewood at the ready! Twin outdoor baths, candles and fragrant bath bombs are supplied to make outdoor bathing under the stars idyllic. My highlight was the bird feeder on the deck, we had Tuis so close I could just about touch them, the native bird life was unreal and I hope they can keep it that way as I saw birds I never thought I'd see. I could go on more but I just say go there, you will not be disappointed. The owner John left us alone but he is there if you need him and such a neat guy. Go, just go. I loved it and will defiantly be going back to this wonderful cottage. Thanks John.
