We stayed at 'Turner Cottage' just up Golden Bay Rd, only 5 mins walk (uphill!) from the 'city' centre. The cottage has everything you could need. The linen, appliances, decor everything was well chosen and of excellent quality. The fitout was contemporary yet in keeping with the area. We spent 4 nights over New Year at the cottage. The birdlife was amazing - we had 5 Kaka's come visit us, as well as Tui's, Bellbirds ... Philippa and Ian are great people - talented, friendly and have the gift of making the most of what they have and of creating beautiful environments for their guests. We're going back in June. We had mostly good weather whilst we were there. We did the Maori Beach walk and the Fern Gully walk. We spent a day on Ulva Island where we came across Weka's, Saddlebacks, Kaka's etc.
