Belinda van Gruting
This modern and luxurious holiday home is amazing from start to finish. The owner is super accommodating and quick to reply to questions. The house is meticulously clean with all the conveniences of home. The interior decoration is proficiently done with fine attention to detail. We did not have great weather, but kept ourselves busy with board games while enjoying the spectacular views of the Pacific ocean. Oamaru is a stone throw away for meals and shopping, but the home's kitchen is fully equipped if you want to enjoy home-cooked meals. Thanks to Liz for sharing this glorious holiday home with us.
Response from Owner
Good Evening Belinda and family. Thank you for your review and constructive comments. I’ve amended the online description! We are delighted that you enjoyed the house, which definitely comes into it’s own when the weather has let everybody down. You left house left in tip top order which is much appreciated. You are welcome back anytime. Best wishes for 2022. Liz

Amazing views from Moeraki to Oamaru & beyond. Well equipped house with all appliances you need, and the host's welcome note was a nice touch. Will be back for sure!!

This brand new beach house offers a great coastal holiday whatever the weather. The view is expansive, the kitchen is well appointed, the bathrooms spacious, the beds are comfortable and the linen is top quality. Excellent heating options are provided including an efficient wood burner and fuel. Watch the sunrise, surfers catching waves or a storm go by from the comfort of the living area. Alternatively enjoy the beach, check out the local art gallery, or visit the historic precinct of Oamaru. We will be back soon.
Response from Owner
We will be thrilled to host you again. The house was handed back in perfect “11 out of 10 condition”! Greatly appreciated and many thanks. Liz
