A large but cozy cottage nestled under a majestic walnut tree with easy access to the main house facilities. Picnic table and brazier. Lovely 5 walk to town. A number of decent eating establishments or takeaways. A cool indie cinema in town.

The space

"Sleep outs" are a NZ tradition; a small building detached from the main house. It is powered and has a heater for cold nights.The bathroom and kitchen are a short walk to the house. You may chose to eat at the picnic table on nice days but are very welcome to eat at the dining table in the house. You are also able to use the kitchen and watch TV in the house.

Guest access

Guests have the sleep out to themselves entering the main house up an easy ramp (for wheelchairs). You may use the kitchen facility and fridge space can be made available on request.

Interaction with guests

Whenever possible, I will be there to assist you with anything you need. I can also offer therapeutic massage ($45 half hour - head neck shoulders) or show you around our area , if you like, and point out day trips or scenic routes. If privacy and little interaction is desired, I am happy to oblige.

Other things to note

The main house is small and the bathroom is off my bedroom but there is a large privacy screen in place that creates a corridor to the loo. There is also a commode just outside the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) available for "night waters".
Also, PLEASE NOTE the prices for 1 or 2 people. I have had a number of people book the room as 2 people but paid as 1.

Cost and cute. Lorina is lovely and super helpful. It was pretty noisy on the roof the night it rained.
