About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Estuary Escape is set at the top of a peaceful woody lane, nestled in amongst trees with tui's for company.

The cottage is an ideal space for two and includes an open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge and bedroom with ensuite bathroom.

Another 2 minute leisurely stroll will take you down the Langford Drive walkway down to the estuary or perhaps to Grossi Point for some swimming, boating or kayaking.

Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property. Really good position close to the wharf with nice surrounding trees. Air conditioning was appreciated as it was a scorcher, especially after biking the Great Taste Trail.
