I stayed here on my own for two nights 7th & 8th Jan as my last stop on the South Island during my trip to NZ. I stayed in the cabin in the garden which has the most amazing views of the mountain, and was very peaceful and quiet, just the birds singing. Glen is a wonderful hostess and nothing... More

The cottage unit was comfortable without being... More

You'll need transport, but it's well worth the trip up to beautiful Motueka Valley to reach Doone Cottage. Set above the river, the beautiful garden is a sun-trap. Plenty to do in the area, whatever your interests. Suggest staying 3 nights so you have time to explore and to chill out. And it's also worth asking if you can have... More
