Cottage is ideally situated for walks on the peninsular. Kitchen and bathroom retain period features. Hosts are friendly, but discreet. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here.

Had a lovely stay at Aro'a Cottage - peaceful, private, relaxing, well equipped and definitely roomier than we thought too. There are lots of great walks around McLeod Bay and the water is right across the road for paddle boarding and canoeing. Tricia and Jack were great and we even got to enjoy some of the delicious produce from their garden! We'll be back :)

A cosy little cottage that was a lot roomier than we thought. Well maintained with everything you need. A real home away from home.

Staying in McLeod Bay was a relaxing and pleasurable start to our trip in New Zealand. The cottage is compact but had everything we needed, and its location is excellent, just seconds from the beach, and near the start of a beautiful coastal walk. But most importantly, our hosts Jack and Trish were extraordinarily friendly and helpful, looking after us so well that we genuinely felt part of the family. We were very sad to have to say goodbye to them in the end, because they are amazingly warm and welcoming.

This very tidy & quiet cottage suited us perfectly. The owners were lovely and the property is situated at the rear of the main house, amongst lovely maintained gardens. It was very suitable for our 2 preschoolers, who adored "Cole" the dog. We enjoyed having a fish at the end of the road. Thanks for having us!

Our family consists of 2 adults and a two year old. This was a great spot. The beach was very calm and great for toddlers. Not only is McLeod Bay a beautiful spot, but there are more bays and walking tracks within easy reach. The bach was very comfortable and the owners very pleasant. The gate and fences contained a toddler well. A very attractive and peaceful part of the country.
