“A lovely place to take your pet”

We had three lovely days in January. Nice and clean and perfect to take our dog. Lovely views and plenty of wildlife on your doorstep. Really good value.

“very comfortable, great views.”
Reviewed October 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This property provided everything we needed for our holiday. Being the middle of winter the combustion stove was well used, especially appreciated the wood supplied. The views from most windows were amazing, we spent a lot of time watching the ferry come & go. The beds & lounge were very comfortable. The little touches like plenty of pantry supplies like glad wrap etc & cleaning supplies again were much appreciated. The owners were very helpful throughout the process & we will definitely stay there again next time we visit that beautiful paradise.

“Very homely”
Reviewed January 21, 2015 for a stay in November 2014

Westerns view has a delightful view of the bay where the ferry comes in at KI
The home is very cosy, and complete with a fire which we used on a cold evening
The kitchen does not want in anything needed for cooking and very nice crockery and cuttlery
The barbq is in a great spot with yet another view across to the mainland.
The beach is also close and a nice place to walk the dog who was permitted to come with us, and there is an enclosed place for the dog when you have to leave it behind, ie when you visit National Parks

“Absolutely Perfect”
Reviewed September 26, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Beautiful little 2 bedroom house with modern well appointed kitchen. Nice to have wood already for heater. Fantastic views from kitchen and wrap around verandah. Very safe for kids and within 5 minute walk to a beautiful/safe swimming beach where you can also see penguins after 7 at night. Booking process with Jan was very easy. Highly recommend - PS dolphin spotting was amazing
