Reviewed 30 December 2010

... we LOVED this very special place on Otago Peninsula!! The cottage was adorable, clean, bright, great views and everything we needed to be at home and comfy for 3 nights. Would have loved to stay longer. The beach was spectacular and very short walk was just as spectacular through huge yellow lupines that opened to the private beach. We saw seal lions, birds and completely enjoyed the ambiance of this amazing place. Hosts Christine and Sam were fantastic!! I dream of the day that we'll be back!

Reviewed 28 November 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst exploring the Peninsula. It was a lovely quiet spot with an amazing outlook. A 5 minute walk to the nearby beach and we were spotting local NZ fur seals. Bronco the cat was interested in everything we did. Our hosts Sam and Christine were really lovely friendly people and made us feel very welcome. The cabin provided everything we needed to enjoy our stay.

The host, sam and Christine are an awesome couple who went the extra mile to make sure we had a wonderful stay.

The cottage which we stayed in had "everything that we need" as quoted by Christine. The view are wonderful and fascinating! Just behind the cottage, you can walk pass a paddock to a beach whereby you can see blue penguins as well as sea lion :)

Not to be missed is Uncle Sam's evening tour whereby you feel feel the most privileged being in the world to be shown the natural beauty of east cost NZ... Seals and Sea Lions as well as the critically endangered yellow eyed penguin. Uncle Sam is involved in conservation efforts with the DOC to help increase the population of the penguins.

Definitely a must for nature and animal lovers
