A pleasant stay -close to all amenities .

  • 3 of 5

the house was very cold though - and smelt musty.

we did enjoy the location and would most likely prefer to stay in the lovely wee cottage in the summer.it was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable .I would recommend this house to others.

Great location close to old town and the bay.

  • 4 of 5

Great location close to old town and the bay. Well equiped kitchen and some basic supplies in the kitchen means cooking is a good option. There is a heat pump which helps, but the old cottage will never get really warm in winter - hot water bottles are supplied!

Perfect location for short stay or long in Oamaru.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location for short stay or long in Oamaru. Short walking distance of downtown attractions Spacious, useful kitchen and laundry facilities. No WiFi, which for us would have been appreciated as we were having problems with our phones. Overall, a recommended place to stay.
