Once again we loved our stay at Rosie's. With the wonderful views it is such a relaxing place to stay. Very comfortable and clean and very well equipped. It's so easy to just sit back and relax whilst taking in the fantastic views over the water and watching the changing tides and all the activity. Also a lovely deck to enjoy with the same views. The kitchen is very well equipped and has a good sized fridge/freezer. There is plenty to do in the area and Riverton has some lovely places to dine for both lunch and dinner and the cafe at Orepuki is recommended. Rosie the owner is a pleasure to deal with. Thank you Rosie, we will be back!

Well what can I can I say - we have just returned home after a superb 2 night stay at "Rosie's With The View", and what a view it is!! We could hardly drag ourselves off the deck, morning coffee, a chilled glass of wine in the evening. Even when we sat inside late evening the view was still there. This is the perfect location whether you simply want to relax or explore the local area, on foot, by bike or by car. But I wouldn't award it 5 star if it didn't deliver in other areas. This is a bach, true kiwi style, very comfortable and oh so clean. As soon as we walked through the door we knew that we had found a real Riverton Gem! The layout is great, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfy, the bathroom is clean and the shower is not a dribble. So glad we have found this place we will definitely be returning. The owner Rosie was also lovely to deal with, responded very quickly and nothing was too much trouble. You should definitely stay here - but please not when I want too stay :)

Thank you Rosie for all the thoughtful things you did from the moment we contacted you that made our stay so easy and enjoyable. It was lovely to walk into such a clean and beautifully organised beach home. The fire kept us cosy and the dry wood supply was outstanding. The view across the harbour is stunning . We cannot imagine a better holiday home experience anywhere else in Riverton. We also had fantastic weather for 5 days.

We had family over for a barbeque and everybody had a great time. We will be back again. Rosie was very quick with the responses to any questions. To travel home from the States and spend it at the little crib was fantastic. Everything you need is there right down to the Wattie's tomato sauce in the cupboard. Thanks for the memories Rosie.

We stayed 2 nights in the cottage and loved it. The weather was so bad on our first day we lit the fire and the house was very quickly warm and cosy. Watching the fishing boats come over the bar was fascinating. Whatever the weather there is always something to watch on the river and ocean. Excellent facilities ( the oven was s bonus) and location. Instructions to get into the house worked perfectly and the owner, Rosie, was in touch right away to confirm our booking. Excellent communication always. We loved our stay and will be back. Thank you!

This cottage is a cocoon that wraps you in warmth and peace. On our arrival the heater was going so we walked out of a cold southerly into a space that stripped all our stress away. With the fire roaring and a glass of wine to sip we settled down to watch through the lounge window the tide change and darkness slowly steal the stunning view of sea birds, river and ocean. Opening the pantry to find those little things you don't want to buy - oil for the fry pan, flour to thicken the gravy etc was wonderful. This cottage is the best equipped we have ever stayed in. The double glazing and piles of firewood and coal kept us so warm we found in the middle of the night we were having to open the bedroom window as it was too hot to sleep - a lovely experience in the deep south in August. The fire stayed smouldering all day so each evening we returned from a day out in the weather to instant heat. We will be back. Thank you Rosie.

We stayed here at Easter and found it so peaceful, convenient to town and other areas in the district. The amenities and cleanliness of this house were just outstanding. The house comes with so many extras, books and magazines, binoculars, puzzles and games and a fully equipped kitchen with not just the bare basics, but everything you would keep in your own home. I didn't need to take all the bits and pieces you normally take just in case - 'Rosie's With The View' had them there! We couldn't tear our eyes from the view where the sea and river met and loved watching all the activity going on. Being Easter time many places were shut but the locals in town were very friendly, helpful and informative. WE WILL BE REPEAT RENTERS

Wonderful clear weather though very frosty made Rosie's place an excellent retreat from deep winter - we loved the log fire and especially the sunrises and sunsets over the river. Everything we needed in a traditional bach that turned back the clock and helped us really relax. We also had a fantastic walk along the beach. It's great to share Rosie's Retreat, highly recommended.

Not only was Rosies home comforting for both but also the view of the Aparima River leading out to Te Ara a Kiwa- Foveaux Strait which can be seen from the lounge, made every morning and evening a picturess delight.
