The cottage is very well presented and immaculately clean. It is spacious, with a triple aspect view of the wonderful gardens managed by current owners. The property is about 150 m from the shoreline at Anakiwa via the access driveway, and about 400m from the start of the Queen Charlotte Track. Equidistant from Picton and Havelock, the location makes a good base from visiting either, or for going further afield, via the Havelock to Blenheim or Nelson. Paulette and Geoff were very welcoming and helpful hosts, providing excellent recommendations for lunch stops on our travels. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. John & Debbie (UK)

The cottage is within walking distance of the Queen Charlotte Track in a quiet area surrounded by beautiful gardens. It is very well equipped with a full kitchen and comfortable beds. There are lots of windows from which to enjoy the view. The downside is if the weather is hot it becomes very hot inside as the owners are very security conscious and want the doors locked and windows closed where you go out. In addition there is a security system that has a motion activated sensor with a low green light in each room. Although we were told it was switched off it went off all night long in the bedroom every time we turned over. If you are a light sleeper that makes it difficult to sleep.

Unfortunatley our summer weather was hot when these guests were in residence and the cottage is not equiped with a heat pump/air conditioning unit.
We have had some recent security issues and therefore recommend that the cottage is left secure as we do not wish to compromise our insurance cover or risk the loss of guests possessions by an unsecured house.
Sadly these guests did not make us aware of the motion sensor problem that we could have easliy solved by covering the offending sensor. We will be sure to cover the bedroom motion sensors in future when we have guests in residence.
