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.

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....

Management response:

It is always so nice to hear that guest's have enjoyed their stay at the cottage and had the opportunity to share what the Guthrie family have so lovingly created. We would love to have you come back again!

About the neighbourhood
Eastbourne is a lovely location just a stone's throw from Wellington. Where else in the world can you have such great access to the outdoors whilst being so close to a capital city? Enjoy the many walks in the hills, cycling around the Pencarrow Coast to the lighthouse or hang out in one of the local cafes. There is something for everyone. As the cottage is located right on the beach-front you can just sit and watch the world go by.
