Love the views from the cottage over the sea and snow capped mountains.Sunset was amazing and can't wait for sunrise in the morning. The room was lovely and clean with an aromatherapy thingy magig smoking away in the corner. Host Liz is lovely. Highly recommend.
First impressions are important. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome. Liz is a great hostess. The cottage is comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The garden is beautiful and the pet pig very friendly. There are pleasant walks nearby, one down to South Bay and a 10 minute walk through bush to the Esplanade. We had booked one night but stayed for two even though the weather was not good. An easy place to feel cosy in during cold,wet weather.
Wow, what a beautiful cottage with breathtaking view. The house was very clean. We stayed for 3 nights. We would have loved to stay longer. The whales and dolphins were fantastic. We travelled for 6 weeks in NZ, This was our favorite cottage. Liz is a great host, more than friendly!!!
Our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. We loved out time at Barnacle Bills a fabulous accommodation, not only affording terrific views but being well appointed with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The area is spacious, homely, peaceful and we slept really well. The location is idea, we loved going up to the viewpoint for a walk at sunset, great photo opportunity and you're not far from town for shopping trips. Liz is a soul of genuine kindness offering help in every way that she can. Her knowledge of information the area will help with any plans you need to make, logistics, shopping etc. The cottage is also in a superb garden, I spent many happy hours with my camera and would have liked longer as we found there is lots to do around…
We stayed in the cottage at Barnacle Bills. It was extremely comfortable and homely and was a key ingredient in a memrabke visit to this beautiful area. We would highly recommend a stay and would be delighted to return if we visited again.
