“highly recommended”
Reviewed August 15, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

We stayed as two couples for four nights. Janine is a wonderful host who was on call for important information like where to get the best massages. The cottage itself has ample space and great ammenities (though, watch the chandeleir in the main bathroom if you're over 6' tall). Great views southward down the valley. It's in a central location on the Kapiti Coast, but a car would be recommended to get around. The only thing I would say against it is you can't open the bedroom windows and have the blind down due to the latch mechanisms.
All in all, a great place to stay.

Thanks for your review David. It's always helpful to hear how things could be even better for my guests. I will be addressing the bedroom window situation but I'm afraid the chandelier will have to stay as it is! Hope to welcome you back here soon.

“A truely 5 star cottage stay”
Reviewed July 4, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

My wife and I stayed at 103 Cottage in early July. The cottage was like a Hyatt 5 star executive suite ( with A1 kitchen ) dropped into a superb country setting with veiws to die for ! We had a sumptuous night with dinner and wine in front of the open fire then rocked off to bed in our 5 star bedroom. What a great place to stay........an absolute highlight ! Only fault was NO vegemite for my Australian wife......a small price to pay ! I would go back anytime.

“The Most Romantic Cottage in the Wellington Region”
Reviewed June 14, 2011 for a stay in February 2011

I was lucky enough to stay here on the weekend my Wedding took place at Sudbury Fields. The cottage is decorated beautifully and every room hints at complete luxury. We were welcomed with a bottle of wine and a yummy cheese platter which we were able to enjoy on the huge deck surrounded by one of the most stunning views I have ever seen in NZ. A weekend at 103 cottage is amazingly indulgent and I cannot wait to stay there again...Thanks to the fabulous Janine who owns the cottage.

“Country luxury”
Reviewed March 28, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Beautifully furnished villa in a typical NZ country setting. Will only get better once it becomes more extablished in its surroundings. Has all the conveinences of a 5 star apartment hotel with the charm of a typical NZ timber villa. Great palce for 2x couples or just a simple romantic weekend away for two.

“Luxurious & Magical Cottage”
Reviewed March 5, 2011 for a stay in December 2010

We had a wonderful stay at the Cottage with our children. After a long journey, it was bliss arriving at a beautifully decorated and pristine cottage with cheese and fruit platter and bottle of wine waiting for us! We also loved the outdoor bath, crisp white bedlinen, fluffy towels and heated towel rails! The owners could not have been more helpful or welcoming. It seems no expense has been spared. We also recommend a visit to Sudbury Fields for a horse-whispering session with Andrew. Will definitively be staying again!
