Island Bay Cottage is a seafront 1930's renovated fisherman's cottage. It has expansive sea views encompassing Cook's Strait, Island Bay and greater south coast and views to the South Island. It offers a unique and beautiful coastal retreat with a wide range of local attractions and activities.

- Quality breakfast items supplied for self-catering.
- Close to local attractions: cafes, cinema, parks, beaches, galleries, shops and coastal walks.
- Beach front cottage set on Wellington's rugged south coast.

Originally built as a local fisherman's cottage it has stood the test of time and the wild southerly storms and is now a quaint coastal refuge for those looking for a scenic location.
