“A perfect place to enjoy a winter storm”
Reviewed 2 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We had two nights at Guthrie, and were lucky enough to have a great sunset the first night, and a typical Wellington thundering southerly storm roll through on the second evening. The cottage has a good heating system so we were able to sit back in the warmth and enjoy the power of the storm.
The cottage has all the facilities you might need, including a nice hot & strong shower - and it's in a perfect spot right on the beach. The Wi-Fi access was a pleasant surprise.

All up - we were extremely happy with the stay and would be happy to recommend. Our only suggestion for improvement is my wife tripped on the steps leading through the front gate - so some improved lighting at the steps would be appreciated for those dark stormy nights. (Although a flashlight is provided in the letterbox for this purpose).

Thank you for your review and especially the feedback about the lighting problem at the front gate. You'll be happy to know we are currently in the process of getting a pole erected at the front gate where our local electrician will be installing a sensor light for those dark moonless nights. We hope to hear from you again soon and delighted to know you enjoyed viewing Wellington harbour albeit during one of its tantrums. Kind regards

Delighted you chose us for your R and R break and thank you for posting your review. Knowing that our guests enjoy their stay really makes it all worth while for us. Also, thank you for leaving the Cottage so spotlessly clean. It was totally unnecessary, but did mean an early finish to work for us, so we popped up to the Village and had a coffee and saluted your consideration. We really do look forward to hearing from you again.
