Cottage Facilities

The Kitchen

The full kitchen has all the major appliances you’ll need for quick breakfasts or a special sit-down meal: oven, range, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator. You’ll find plates, glasses, silverware, and more for setting the Rimu wood dining room table for a romantic meal. Extras include a toaster, and a tea kettle, so you’ll be able to do as much or as little in the kitchen as you’d like while on vacation.

There is a washer and dryer in the small laundry room so you don’t have to worry about packing enough clean clothes. And if you want to have a cookout, there is a gas BBQ, plus outside table and chairs – just grab the steaks and the beer and enjoy the ocean and sunset views!

Telephone and Internet

Mobile phone coverage is limited on the West Coast. We have therefore installed a telephone, as we realise many of our clients are operating their own business from afar.

If you have a laptop computer the internet and email can also be accessed by the broadband connection. Both an ethernet cable and free wireless connections are available.

Local calls are free. A telephone card is required for all toll calls. Kai Ora or Yabba cards are advised, or calls can be booked to a credit card.
