“Very private, very restful, very thoughtfully provided conveniences”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Stayed for 4 nights over Easter.
Booking with Elspeth was quick and easy (booked via website and email).
Stayed at the Miro cottage. Access requires care when turning off the 100kph highway.
Décor was retro classic kiwi bach style, with some modern touches, but extremely comfortable.
All the facilities available - good, hot shower, flat-screen tv, stove, oven, gas bbq, woodfire (wasn't cold enough to use though). Kitchen implements were great - we ate in a couple of nights and there were enough utensils to make a variety of dishes eg chocolate mousse, roast chicken - even saw a sushi mat!
Loved the places were you could just sit and relax - on the deck, in the garden, in the hammock, in the lounge, at the table looking over the estuary through the windows, at the picnic table by the BBQ - very thoughtful - and very private, generally couldn't see or hear another soul. Beautiful surroundings and the estuary was mesmerizing, day or night, tide in or out. The birds are very entertaining.
Had a wonderful time, would love to have stayed longer. Hopefully will be back. Definitely recommended.

Only downside was the proximity of the highway - even though the location was private, we could always hear the hum from the highway. And the other cottage had some children over to visit one night, who were a bit noisy in the garden. Both very minor issues.
