About this Holiday House

This lovely cottage is located in the area which was once home to a bustling port following the discovery of gold in the 1860's. The house has good heating throughout and a full kitchen available. The property is fenced and very private. You will have the sole use of the property while staying and will not need to share it with anyone (apart from your travelling companions). Whether you are on a whirlwind trip through NZ seeking to escape from the hustle and bustle of constant travel or a domestic traveller you will find peace here. The beach and river with their ever changing vistas are a one minute walk away. If you are staying during winter the heating will be operated by remote wifi for continuous 24/7 heating during your stay. You are welcome to adjust it to suit your needs during your stay. The spa is available for guests. If any of the following apply to your stay please notify me at the time of booking to ensure we are fully serviced any ready for your arrival: Do you intend to use the spa pool or sofa bed? Do you require the super king bed split into singles or a portacot?

Special Amenities

If you are a nature lover or rarely get to experience it in your home environment you will love this stay. You can see the southern alps mountain range from the back deck. During winter the peaks often glow pink at first and last light of the day. Our sunsets are awesome! Quite spectacular you could say. Watch them at the beach, on the river edge near the house, from the cemetery parking area up on Seaview Hill or from the Plane Table Lookout on Airport Drive. A little out of town you can catch the sunset while dining at Stations Inn at Blue Spur.ing There are two outside decks on the house so that you can sit in the morning sun while your breakfast and relax on the back deck in the afternoon/evening. You will be 500 metres from the New World Supermarket and even closer to cafes and other town amenities, so everything is in walking distance. The river is within 50? metres of the house and the beach not much further. You will hear the waves on the beach from your pillow. The property is securely fenced and very, very private. You will be in your own private oasis. Opportunities for stargazing under our clear unpolluted night sky abound, as do opportunities for walking rugged natural beaches biking, fishing, bush walks, instagram worthy photography of river, beach, mountains and sunsets. The region is surrounded by copious amounts of rainforest. The natural environment reigns supreme on the West Coast.
