There aren't enough superlatives about our stay and the way we were looked after by Janine and the team.

The location of the cottage itself is about 45 mins away (straight, safe highway out of the city) and is actually quite easy to find.

The property is fantastic and easily sleeps 5 /6 people. It was winter but the bathrooms have underfloor heating, heaters, power showers and the bedrooms have standalone heaters. The living room has a lovely fireplace and there was plenty of wood and firestarters (for those that need help).

We arrived pretty late but there was a starter pack with all the info of all places that deliver food. The fridge was packed with some basics such smoked salmon, eggs, milk and butter. There was also a freshly baked loaf and the largest banana and walnut muffin we have ever seen (easily fed 5!) We were also given a bottle of bubbly, red and white wine.

The cottage also has a dryer and washing machine -both were extremely useful as we got drenched in Wellington the next evening when the heavens opened up!

We weren't brave enough to try out the outside bath but it looked great. As it was dark when we arrived the first night we didn't really appreciate the scenery however the next morning we awoke to one of the best views we have ever seen.

I have travelled the world extensively and stayed at some of the best hotels but this place is just something else. We are already making plans to go back next year.

“gorgeous cottage perfect for relaxation”
Reviewed 9 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a lovely 3 days at this gorgeous cottage. It's private, beautifully furnished and impeccably clean with a wonderful outlook. Comfy beds and open fire and outdoor bath a highlight. Stunning views from every room. Recommend stocking up on firewood if you go in winter. Great place to relax, cook, read and enjoy down time.

“Fabulous Place to relax”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Fabulous place to stay for total relaxation. Quiet and peaceful with stunning views. The 2 claw foot baths have bubble bath supplied and even a welcome pack is there on arrival.
Will definitely be back again as our two young boys also loved the house. Very private and immaculately clean.

“A stylish, modern take on a classic farm cottage.”

We enjoyed a week at Cottage 103 after a family wedding last September. We didn't really know what to expect as it was our first trip to NZ, but the Kapiti area is ideal for a relaxation holiday. There was plenty to do, but the cottage was a great place to relax. We did a big load of shopping in Wellington before driving up and then used the chef's kitchen to make some lovely meals at home. Janine (the owner) also organised for a local restaurant to send a three course meal around to the house one evening which was a real treat.

The house itself is very modern and tastefully decorated, with an open fire, rich furnishings, satellite TV and a large deck overlooking the valley.

My partner made friends with the neighbours (a pony and a donkey), and we enjoyed a day trip to Kapiti Island, walking in the hills and an afternoon of quad bike riding.

We travel frequently and both agree that this was one of our most memorable, and our most relaxing trip. We are in the process to booking another trip to NZ, to return to the Cottage.
