We had a very quick stay here in Tui Cottage as our first night in NZ! It was fantastic, we loved it! Felt immediately relaxed when we walked in the door, the sounds and the lush gardens were beautiful. The Cottage is very nicely decorated, with everything you would want as a traveller. Great area to explore! Worth the adventure... More

I have to agree with every other review, The Cottages are a great place to stay for a few days(or longer). It took us a little time to find the excellent little walk down to the bottom of the bush, but we did see the kiwi in the end.

Absolutely superb accommodation set in extremely lush and tranquil surroundings. All your needs are catered for with excellent attention to detail which makes this feel like your home away from home. I would highly recommend The Cottages and would love to stay there again.

A cosy place in mid winter with friendly locals and tiny towns nearby to visit, this is a great spot. Beautifully equipped, not that we aim to use the kitchen much, but good heating and very fine facilities - bathroom, heating etc. We could be happy here for a lot longer than the 2 nights we booked.

Six of us rented the two cottages for the weekend and were delighted with the quiet location, the sea views, the beautifully appointed, spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms and the quirky spa bath huts in the bush. You are provided with everything you need and are then just left alone to enjoy yourselves. If you are looking for some special... More
