Hi, we loved our stay at Little Wanganui Cottage. As soon as we arrived we knew we were home. The house is spacious, warm and modern. It is very practically set up with all the things you need for an enjoyable stay and very clean and tidy. My husband enjoyed the sky TV sport. It is a short walk or drive to a lovely beach and good for accessing the beauty of the Oparara basin and the Heaphy tracks, which we enjoyed. The bed was supremely comfortable. Thank you Russell and Elaine, we hope to be back again, Rose and Will Parsons, Blenheim.

This is our second visit to Little Wanganui Cottage, loved it this time just as much. It is clean, bright, sunny, welcoming and so well looked after, you can tell this is a much loved family holiday home. Close to the many walks which we enjoy, with some fantastic opportunities for photography. We have some very memorable photos particularly of the incredible sunset with the cows silhouetted in the foreground – quite magical! We will be back for a third time I am sure!

Had a great time in a region of NZ where its isolation has protected the small town values of the past. There is only rushing when the whitebait are about or happy hour is about to start. People are happy to stop and have a genuine conversation, you get a wave from every car you pass on the road. The Little Wanganui Cottage is a well equipped, child friendly base to explore and enjoy the region from. Thanks - we'll be back!
