Easy to understand directions led us to Waikare Cove. Plenty of space in this house for the 6 adults. We loved the outside space with the new spa pool and enjoyed looking around the garden with various fruit and pine trees. The large BBQ meant we had a lovely meal with the stunning view and plenty of outdoor seating on the decked area. The walk to the waterfront where the canoes are was very steep meaning we only went once, as only 1 of our group was interested in canoeing. We didn't go to the pool as we preferred the beach for a swim.
The drive to Russell is easy enough and there are loads of places to eat and shop. There is a decent sized supermarket there and has a lovely laid-back feel to the place. The view from flagstaff hill is amazing. The beach at Oneroa was lovely. We even managed to swim with a oenguin.
We caught the ferry and went to Waitangi Treaty Grounds which was really interesting.
I think you can see that we really linked this place. Kathy and Rob checked we were OK and left us to it.
We stayed at this cottage in January 2017 with our family - Sally, Richard, Tom and Finlay. We had the most amazing time. The cottage was superb - an beautiful setting, comfortable cottage with outstanding facilities. Photos and details listed do not do it justice. Kathy gave us a warm welcome. We would definitely stay here again given the opportunity.
The location was superb. We love the view. the house was well presented. It has everything we need. Very convenient. We enjoyed our stay there. Kids love the fact that they can bike, swim, play basketball, darts and pingpong. We definitely will visit again!
