What a find! I recently stayed here for 3 days. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable owner. Experienced both rain and sunshine during my stay - where possible mornings were spent enjoying breakfast on the deck listening to the bird song, including hearing and seeing kea fly above and tui feeding in nearby trees. The cottage is super clean, shower has amazing pressure, cottage has everything you need, perfect location with mountain views, you are in walking distance to everything in the village including a myriad of different walks. I absolutely recommend staying here, and will definitely stay again. Thank you again 10 Cottages Team, 11/10.

Our room was warm, had a powerful shower, a comfortable king bed and whole 50 shades of beige was very clean. Couldn’t use the small outdoor deck as was cold and wet. We stayed 2 nights and it was just ok. Did some laundry there which was helpful. Don’t expect too much. Owner asked us to pay virtually the minute we arrived.

I stayed here for 5 days and really enjoyed it. Staff very helpful and accommodating and it has a great atmosphere. Excellent location, 2 mins walk from town but it really private off a side street so feels like you are further away. Can’t recommend enough!

A fantastic 1 night stay. Room was exactly as pictured, spacious, clean and cosy with great ammenities. Nice and quiet location, with comfortable beds and a cute private deck to sit on. Loved the native West Coast plants and trees, we like being in a forest. Service on check in and check out was very friendly and took the time to advise on recommendations in the area. Located right around the corner (150m) from the Tatare Tunnel walk with glow worms, highly recommend! As well as close walking distance to restaurants, bars, wild life centre, hot pools. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again next time! Thank you for the great stay.

A very clean and comfortable room at a very reasonable price. An easy walk to restaurants. This was a very quiet location and I am sure the views would be stunning if the rain had stopped!!! The room had everything you needed for a stopover.
