This location and accommodation exceeded out expectations - far more impressive than the website would have you believe.
Quiet location, away from the crowds and close to nature
Incredible and stunning sea views from the master bedroom, kitchen, dining, living and deck areas
Comfortable outdoor and indoor living areas with plenty of room to spread out
Fully equipped kitchen for self catering (and we did cook a Christmas roast!)
Great starter basket of goodies including a local wine for us
Raewyn put up a large Christmas tree and tasteful decorations for us
They left a lovely local Christams present under the tree for us
We were apprehensive when booking about having our own privacy, but while the owners house is "close-ish", they left us to our own devices, while still offering a social element if we chose.
I also have to add that this was THE CLEANEST property we have ever stayed in!!
We did hear Kiwi's (both male and female) call during three nights we were there, which was a delight!
Overall - I think this property is excellent value for money - it's first class, amazingly maintained with stunning views.
