You really absolutely must if you are going to go to the Abel Tasman or Golden Bay Area - I would thoroughly recommend spending a little more and having the cottage - we loved it and the views are spectacular. Scott and John are good hosts and if you get the chance join in puppy Molly's playtime ball throwing - it certainly wore my husband out chasing about the garden !! The cottage is beautifully decorated and everything is impeccably clean and well laid out - everything is here that you may need including CDs and a television ( though it's tough to tear your eyes away from the views over the property) - we did not see much of the main house but I fully suspect that the standard continues throughout the property. If you are lucky then strawberries ( homegrown ) or baked goods will be left for you to sample when you arrive back after a day out.
I cannot think of any reason not to stay here if you get the chance - please just book it - you will not be disappointed.
Sure the wooden construction makes a few creaky noises at times but it's all part of the charm - only thing I would say guys is that us ladies would like a decent sized hair towel to wrap around after a shower - other then that completely perfect ! Keep up the good work.
