  • Such an awesome space. Unreal location. Gorgeous accom. Totally fenced so super safe for when traveling with a dog & very private. Couldn’t have asked for more.

    Iona (NZ) - Dec, 2021

  • Amazing location within walking distance to most of the tourist sites and things to do. Very clean and cute little cottage with all the amenities you need. They also allowed us to bring our dog for a very small extra fee which was wonderful and he thoroughly enjoyed running around in the enclosed yard while we relaxed on the deck.

  • Property was spotless and luxurious. Self-catering modern "cottage" with huge living room, small but very comfy bedroom, excellent shower / bathroom and spacious outside deck (great for star-gazing at night and sunny for breakfast) Location doesn't have a lake view but lake is literally two minutes walk down driveway - and 5 min walk to the church and sheepdog statue.
