Very thoughtful manager/owner. Upgraded our cottage for easier use because we have two young kids. Great location to the church and town centre.

The cottage was rather a quirky kiwi style 'batch' with lots of interesting modifications. It was very reasonably priced and we quite enjoyed the quirkiness. Great location.
