We had a really nice weekend stay at the Batley cabin. Definitely a basic set-up but all you need in a beautiful location right on the waterfront! Would be ideal to bring a boat or even some kayaks. Don't expect many kitchen utensils.

Response from Rae:
Hi Justine, Thanks for the review. We enjoyed meeting you. Re utensils - 'don't expect many' sounds more serious than no can opener - wonder if you could let me know what else you wished you'd had and I'll sort. We stayed at Omapere Copthorne previous weekend and our gorgeous accomm. had similar amt - and no can opener! Re odour - think it comes from carpet - usually air the cabin ahead but was out and wet weather prevented this. So very sorry. Spiders always beat me - but I don't use toxic stuff, so I guess they have that figured out. Warm wishes. Rae

Good option for campers who would like to up one step, as bathroom amenties are 'camp-like'. Very scenic spot next to the water. We enjoyed it.

This place was described as glamping, which is very descriptive of it. A wonderful place for anybody who enjoys peace and tranquillity away from the crowds.

Rae and Rex are warm , hospitable and very relaxed . If you're looking for peace, quiet , a beautiful setting and a place to chill and unwind , "The cabin" is the place to go too. Take a mirror if your worried about how you look otherwise ...just be , because you wont find on…
