We stayed two nights with Pauline and Bruce Cargill. Very accommodating and genuine hosts. Thank you for making our stay so comfortable. Amazing scenery and Pauline has a green thumb—gardens are beautiful. We stayed in the one-bedroom cottage overlooking the Tasman Sea. It was a private, self contained cottage that had all the amenities. Full kitchen and laundry facilities including...

Weather was marginal at best, but Steeples Cottage was a winner. Best stop of our month-long NZ/AU trip. Lots of room, lots of views (when the sun came out) and tons of flowers. But the best recommendation of all was to eat at the Star Tavern just down the road. It was like being welcomed to the great Cape Foulwind...

Stayed in the cottage which has a magnificent view of the ocean. The ground are manicured and flowers abound. Cottage is delightful, comfortable, roomy and the price is very, very reasonable. We paid twice as much at other places but never got the quality we got here. Highly, highly recommended. (And be sure to eat at the Starr Tavern down...

Like most of the reviews before, we found this property to be a litlle piece of West Coast magic. Having tried unsuccessfully to book the cottage we reserved the studio, and would more than happily stay there again. Spacious, clean, comfortable, everything we needed was there and it was a delight to have good sized wine glasses! A variety of...

My partner and I were pleasantly suprised after arriving at Steeples. Pauline greeted us with a smile in her over the top garden. The view from the garden was spectacular. We were lucky to be blessed with great weather and took a stroll down the beach with the most epic views in New Zealand. The room was stylishly decorated and...

Wow! We stayed for one night at The Steeples... As many have already said. If only we knew how beautiful it is, we would surely have stayed for longer! The cottage is the place to book and stay in. Lovely seafront views, a large garden in front of the deck and a really picturesque view of the Cape Foulweather coastline,...

Having received warm hospitality from B&Bs on the earlier portion of our trip, we were disappointed by our welcome at Steeples. Although we'd booked a B&B room, we were informed that instead we were being put in the Studio- a pleasant upgrade for many, I am sure, but if we'd wanted that room we would have booked it. We far...

My husband & I really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Shame it was for only one night. The weather was terrible but that did not spoil our stay as the cottage is very comfortable . It is very roomy with very nice decor & has everything that opens & shuts. The bed was very comfy too. The views from...

On arriving at Steeples we were greeted by friendly hosts Pauline and Bruce. Their hospitality was superb and nothing was too much trouble for them. The cottage exceeded our expectations with everthing that opened and shut, a great deck, beautiful gardens and a kitchen to cook a first class meal. Attention to detail and quality furnishings were noted. The view...

We have returned to Steeples again from some rest and recuperation from Christchurch. A blissful weekend-views, hospitality and spotless accommodation and this time we savoured the West Coast delicacy of white bait caught fresh that morning and prepared especially for us that evening . Always a great place whatever the weather. Booked again for another weekend!
