About this Holiday House

Featured in Avenues Magazine as part of the heavenly baches by the sea series! Waterfront 3 bedroom secluded cottage with breathtaking sea and countryside views. Offering a huge sunny deck, private garden and barbecue facilities.The location is quiet and peaceful with an abundance of bird life. The early morning sunrise and ever changing tides add to the magic of the setting. The nearest swimming beach and local boat launching spot is only a short drive away. There are plenty of enjoyable walks and places to explore. Or just kick back and enjoy a glass of wine on the deck! The cottage is comfortable and simple, reminiscent of the iconic NZ bach. (Happily since May 2018 new bathroom installed with the longed for shower over bath-enjoy!) "Writing this on the sunny deck outside our bedroom overlooking the harbour. The water looks stunning! Fantastic little cottage so close to Christchurch yet takes us to a faraway place. This is our second time here, and we will be back!"

We had a wonderful time at Waterway Cottage - it was a fabulous little house for a relaxing weekend and we will be back! The house was clean and comfortable, the kitchen well resourced (although it'd be great to have a kitchen scraper/spatula and a slotted turner), the breadmaker kept us happy, the bathroom was modern, we fell in love with the Lazboy chairs, the bed was comfortable, the views were calming and the lack of wifi and phone reception was very welcome. Thanks for sharing your wonderful slice of the world with us!

What an amazing spot! Waterway Cottage is a true Kiwi bach & reminds me of holidays from my childhood. So quiet & private and you actually feel like you're in the middle of nowhere which we so enjoyed! We loved the birdlife - pukeko, wood pigeons, geese, ducks, herons, swallows & a friendly bellbird singing in the tree beside the deck. We even saw a pheasant & two quails when we went for a drive. The cottage was sunny, clean & well equipped, the bed was comfy and Janna was lovely to deal with. 5 stars +!!
