GEM of a place. Lovely cottage on quiet street yet quick drive to Mapua for restaurants or to run on the beach and cycling trail. Very peaceful with beautiful views overlooking a tidal flat with mountains in the background. Only criticism is of our own failure to stay for longer.

Our host supplied good information with regard to directions and how to obtain the key. In the end because we had a late arrival she ended up meeting us which was perfect. After a brief tour of the home she left us to be. Hosts were very gracious and amenities were as described and exceeded our expectations. host and hostess are artists in much of their private art collection is displayed and is beautiful.

I can't say enough good things about Lesley's cottage. It is surrounded by stunning natural beauty, with beautiful details from the artists in every nook and cranny both inside and out. It's warm, cozy, and just a lovely place to relax and watch the tides change. Our daughter loved watching the sheep and playing the games provided both in and outside. Easy day trip to Abel Tasman as well. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you Lesley and Darryl for being such lovely hosts!

A fabulous location in a great cottage. The cottage had everything we could have wanted, including the view over the water! The hosts were very flexible with our late arrival and made us very welcome. Wish we could have stayed longer! Would love to head back there sometime!

We have lived in this wonderful area for a large part of or lives. We own and manage Bronte Art Gallery and our much visited studio and showroom gallery.
After traveling extensively, we feel you too will enjoy a relaxing stay in the cottage.
