“gorgeous cottage perfect for relaxation”
Reviewed 10 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely 3 days at this gorgeous cottage. It's private, beautifully furnished and impeccably clean with a wonderful outlook. Comfy beds and open fire and outdoor bath a highlight. Stunning views from every room. Recommend stocking up on firewood if you go in winter. Great place to relax, cook, read and enjoy down time.

“Fabulous Place to relax”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Fabulous place to stay for total relaxation. Quiet and peaceful with stunning views. The 2 claw foot baths have bubble bath supplied and even a welcome pack is there on arrival.
Will definitely be back again as our two young boys also loved the house. Very private and immaculately clean.

“A stylish, modern take on a classic farm cottage.”

We enjoyed a week at Cottage 103 after a family wedding last September. We didn't really know what to expect as it was our first trip to NZ, but the Kapiti area is ideal for a relaxation holiday. There was plenty to do, but the cottage was a great place to relax. We did a big load of shopping in Wellington before driving up and then used the chef's kitchen to make some lovely meals at home. Janine (the owner) also organised for a local restaurant to send a three course meal around to the house one evening which was a real treat.

The house itself is very modern and tastefully decorated, with an open fire, rich furnishings, satellite TV and a large deck overlooking the valley.

My partner made friends with the neighbours (a pony and a donkey), and we enjoyed a day trip to Kapiti Island, walking in the hills and an afternoon of quad bike riding.

We travel frequently and both agree that this was one of our most memorable, and our most relaxing trip. We are in the process to booking another trip to NZ, to return to the Cottage.

“Spot on”
Reviewed 25 January 2012 for a stay in December 2011

I rented the cottage as the place to spend our wedding night, as we had rented their venue next door to have our wedding reception. I cannot think of a more stunning place I have ever stayed in, and I have been to some really high end hotels etc in my time. The bed was the most delicious comfortable bed I have ever slept in and the entire cottage has been fitted out to the highest standard. I was dying to have a bath in the outside bath but it was too cold as we had not great weather oddly at that it e of year, so I had one in the beautiful bathroom, one of two. We did not want to leave. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the area, don't muck about, book in, you will not find fault in anything. Janine is also delightful to deal with, very organised, efficient and has an easygoing relaxed and honest manner. You have to stay!
