Gorgeous hosts, perfect location and adorable cottage perfectly appointed. We truly enjoy our 4 nights stay and wish we stayed longer. Quiet, private and still walking distance of every where, you can start a new walk every morning.

We absolutely loved our stay at Turner Cottage! From start to finish, the service was amazing - Pip was very responsive in communicating before we arrived, and picked us up from the 'airport' to take us to our beautiful cottage nestled in the bush! She made us feel welcome & gave us plenty of information and advice about things to... More

I went to Stewart Island with my partner simply to take time out from the intensity and stress of Sydney life. It was everything I was hoping for. Set back from the main road behind trees and ferns it offered total privacy and peace and quiet. The condition and amenity were fantastic. Not only were all the basics covered, it... More

Thanks to Pippa and Ian for the flexibility to stay at this cottage. I stayed 3 of 5 nights at the cottage and was able to store my excess baggage while hiking the tracks. Pick up and drop off from ferry. Very clean and modern with all the details of a well thought out rental property. Nice kitchen, laundry and... More

After spending five months in the hour Middle East, Turner Cottage was the much needed getaway we needed, and deserved . Pip greeted us at the ferry, delivered us to the cottage to show us it's ins and outs, and the island's, before leaving us so we could enjoy the solitude. Turner Cottage was just a five minute walk to... More

We had a fantastic stay in Turner cottage on Stewart Island. Our only regret is we could not stay longer! Ian and Pip offer a wonderful, friendly service - picking us up to and from the ferry, a water taxi ride in the early hours out to Ulva island and back again, and providing us with lots of useful tips...

We stayed in the B&B room at Pip & Ian's home. They were the best hosts during our month long trip to NZ. Pip has an artist's eye which is evidenced in every corner and garden spot on their property. We felt like we were home except when we basked at the view. They made it possible for us to... More

We stayed at the Bach in February 2015 and loved the location and the quality of the accommodation. The Bach was secluded, quiet, and very spacious. We were close to a wonderful walking trail and also close enough to the town of Oban to get there in a few minutes. The Bach also comes with a car (included in the... More

This is A secluded, tranquil, little, rustic cottage hidden on the HILL AMONG TALL TREES. It has a convenient location, but does NOT have wifi, nor a bay view. - If you like RUSTIC tranquility, bird watching, and nice location; and if don't mind walking up and down the flights of steps, then this place is a great choice.
