Lovely welcome from the host's and Izzy their beautiful dog. The cottage is everything you could want or need. So warm, cosy and comfortable. Delightful garden, leading to the sea view that can be seen from the lounge. There is a couple of spots at the bottom of the garden where you can sit enjoy a wine and nibbles whilst taking in the view and fresh sea air. Delish continental breakfast including fresh eggs. There is nothing skimped at this accom. Close by, walks to see the seals and the lighthouse. The local tavern 5 min walk. Good restaurants. What more could you want. Can't wait to return.

We stayed in the cottage - so spacious, beautiful garden, right on the coast - a home away from home. So relaxing and very special place. Pub down the road for meals. GREAT hosts - definitely recommend!

We had to look twice. Is this really our cottage? Yes it is. Owner Bruce left us a note that we can just make ourselves at home. It's a very spacious cottage, with a big living room and open kitchen, bedroom with great beds. You look out onto a big beautiful garden full of flowers and a huge tree. Under the tree a wooden bench to just sit and look out over the ocean! Very quiet and private. The only thing that could use some attention was the breakfast (frozen bread, no yoghurt, no orange juice). Bruce was a nice host. We heard that he was going to sell this place and enjoy a quiet life down the road.

Absolutely stunning views, beautiful gardens and immaculately clean, spacious and comfortable cottage. Really comfy bed and shower was great, lots of hot water and great water pressure. Bruce was friendly and welcoming, invited us to utilise his clifftop "man cave" during our stay. We wished we could have stayed longer than the 1 night we did, this was one of the best places we stayed on our tour of the South Island. It was a wild blustery night when we stayed so unfortunately we could not eat outside at the clifftop table, but we enjoyed being warm and cozy inside while still enjoying the view. We unreservedly recommend The Steeples as a fantastic place to stay and we will stay again when we next head south. Thanks Bruce for sharing your lovely cottage, it was simply awesome!

The cottage is a lovely place to stay at. The house and especially the garden is fantastic. The cottage is well equipped with a kitchen, laundrette, a huge bedroom and a cozy living room (though we preferred having breakfast and dinner at the beautiful terrace - the view is simply spectacular). In the evening we did the short walk to the nearby lighthouse to see a nice sunset. A perfect stay, we would have loved to stay longer.
