Perfect introduction to New Zealand. Loved accommodation right across road from beach. Walking distance to village centre with nice bar and food and convenient for bus into Wellington. Absolutely perfect for us.

Our third trip to Guthrie Cottage. Highly recommended. The ever changing harbour view and sunsets are always beautiful, whatever the weather. A very safe area with easy parking. Guthrie is a very relaxing, comfortable and quiet place to stay. It's a short walk to the supermarket & local shops. A bath & shower in the front yard are always a highlight. Swimming out to the moored pontoon in the harbour was fun on calm days. We hope to return again.

“Beautiful house in an idyllic location”

This cottage is a beautifully renovated and characterful old two bedroom beachfront home in a very peaceful location right on the waterfront of a bay facing Wellington. It is a few minutes drive from a bay from where there is a ferry ride to Wellington, and about 10 minutes walk from a shopping street with a supermarket and cafes etc. It was very quiet at night, with just the sound of the waves on the beach, and the beds were comfortable, so we slept very well. Every facility and comfort was provided, including a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, wifi, and even a coffee machine with some excellent ground coffee left for us. The manager, Lynne, also checked that we were enjoying our stay. We had a wonderful time.

“Fantastic View”
Reviewed 26 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

This is a lovely cottage with terrific views. If you don't mind being away from the city centre it is the ideal spot.There is a small village within walking distance and a ferry service to the heart of Wellington that only takes around 20 minutes.
Very comfortable bedding ,shower is over the bath . Relaxation plus.
Would highly recommend

“When we think of NZ, the first thing that comes to mind is Guthrie Cottage”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The cottage is a family home and it shows in every detail and amenity. Comfortable, traditional and inviting. Lynne made certain everything was perfect . A wonderful 3 days to celebrate our 36th wedding Anniversary. But it was not enough time to take in all the beauty of Eastbourne and it's people. This was the end of our holiday in NZ. Next time, this will be our first and longest stay.
