Granity Sands is set on the beach of the lovely, artistic village of Granity. The beach is at the bottom of the garden, and there are many iconic bush and beach walkways surrounding us. Max the dog always available for beach walks.
“I would stay here again any time! It was so enjoyable to spend time in the cozy and stylish space that Sande has created. I especially love the book exchange fridge, beautiful murals and art around the property, and the large, well-equipped kitchen. With the beach right out the back, beautiful backyard, and being close to many walks, there is no shortage of nature to enjoy. But best of all is the comfortable and welcoming vibe, thanks to Sande and Max! Sande was so kind and went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed, and gave me excellent tips of where to explore nearby.”
Our slightly shabby 1910 villa is the perfect place to escape and read a few great novels. It has high ceilings, plenty of light, a colourful mix of decor, and lots of great books (Classic, modern, and NZ literature). The guestroom features bay windows and ornamental fireplace. Must love pets - we have one friendly beagle (Eager) and three aloof cats (Augustus, Remus & Romulus). Sample a wide range of local jams, honey, bread, milk, muesli, fruit and milk for breakfast.
“Ellen’s place is charming, adorable and comfortable. The bedroom has beautiful bay windows and a lovely bookcase with fantastic reads. I greatly enjoyed stopping here and was able to rest well and easy. Ellen’s hospitality was very inviting and there is a very comfortable amount of privacy. I highly recommend her place! A truly beautiful, unique and wonderful stay! Great access to all sorts of local activities and adventures.”

“Julia’s place seemed too good to be true - but it is absolutely everything she says it is and more. It is beautifully and lovingly decorated, with superb touches and she has thought of everything you could possibly want- and oh the hot tub! We were lucky enough to meet Julia who was delightful and treated us like life long friends. The strongest possible recommendation for this wonderful place and is unbelievably good value.”
