Wonderful location, close to beach

Pros: The quality of the cottage and friendliness of the owners.
This place is just lovely, the owners are very friendly and quite helpful. The cottage was quite extensive with a lot of furnishings and kitchen utensils. A gourmet basket is provied on arrival, including eggs from their chickens! and, freshly baked scones were provided. Great place, will definitely Crome back again.

Beautiful beach front accommodation

Fantastic three bedroom accommodation with access to an amazing coast line, so private but only 7 kms from the lovely little sea side village of Bicheno where we were able to buy fresh sea food from the wharf. We were three friends travelling together so it was great to have our own rooms. We had a fantastic stay for the three nights. I would love to come back and spend a week.

Location: Wineries, water activities, walking tracks, nature park, national parks, small towns etc
Friendly welcome. Secluded, well set out grounds and great beach for long walks. Close to other tourists attractions, but not too close. We really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful place to relax

Right from check in we were made very welcome. The small details make the cottages a delight to stay at. Close enough for activities and to go out for meals and far enough away to enjoy the peaceful gardens and seclusion on the beach. We would definately stay again would loved to have stayed longer.

Right on the beachfront

Pros: Comfort and position. Well equiped kitchen and comfortable king size bed.
Location: Penguin tour is a must.
We arrived late at night after the Penguin Tour. Room was warm and very comfortable. The view was amazing in the morning and we enjoyed the grounds of the hotel. Owners were very friendly and helpful with ideas for the next part of our journey.

A beautiful escape!

Pros: A beautiful location, accommodating hosts and plenty of options!
Location: Nearby are the delights of Bicheno, a couple of wonderful National Parks and Nature World and Penguin tours literally right next door!
This was our second visit to Sandpiper Ocean Cottages, and this time my wife, two sons and I stayed in Driftwood Cottage. Yet again we were able to wake up and enjoy a pair of beautiful sunrises on a wonderful, white-sanded beach (which we had to ourselves), to be followed at the end of the day with an equally beautiful sunrise. Despite a late arrival (and early departure on the Sunday), our hosts had taken care of everything and we cannot fault any aspect of the experience. I could not recommend it more highly.
