“Relaxing in this beautiful cottage was just what we needed on our vacation!”
Reviewed 4 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We really enjoyed staying in Ali’s cottage. It was exactly like the pictures-beautiful, serene, and inviting. We didn’t mind that it wasn’t centrally located (near Nelson) because it was so relaxing to come home to and the end of the day. The place was very well kept and worked perfectly for two people. Working with Ali was a pleasant experience. She made the booking process easy and was very accommodating. The one downside to this cottage was the bugs (mostly mosquitos). We learned the hard way that keeping your windows open at night meant lots of bug bites! This isn’t specific to the cottage (since there aren’t any window screens in NZ), but I think the more rural area invited more bugs than the more populated places. All in all, we would highly recommend this place!

Very comfortable and with a wonderfully peaceful feeling, Waterwheel Cottage proved the perfect getaway. Beautiful gardens, original artworks and nice touches like a homemade loaf of zucchini bread and bowel of fruit made it special.
