The refurbished 1920's miner's character cottage is situated in Glen Afton village, a quiet pretty country setting. The location is an easy drive to many popular tourist destinations and cities and perfect as a home base. The Bush Tramway club, Waingaro Hot Springs are nearby and popular Raglan surf Beach about a 40 minute drive. The cottage is fully furnished and on a large flat section with ample parking. Internet is wireless and unlimited. Host will happily assist guests to enjoy their stay.

The space

The house has a very relaxing, cosy feel about it away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There are French doors onto the deck and in summer it is perfect for a barbecue. The section is large so you could park your boat and trailer, cycles or leave kayaks on the section. At night it is quiet and restful, no noisy traffic.

Great hosts, we were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived. The house is spacious and very clean with great facilities. It's situated in a very quiet street which feels very much "out in the sticks". There are some weird and wonderful pubs nearby and the neighbourhood seems very safe and friendly. The log fire is definitely a highlight of the house if you just want to stay in with some wine, you could even throw on some Netflix as the Wifi is quick, steady and unlimited. The pictures on Airbnb really don't do this place justice, I would highly recommend this house and its great hosts.

Quiet cottage with everything you need for a great escape. Close enough to good shops, but far enough and in the country so you can get away from the world. Easy and picturesque drive to Hamilton and Raglan. Host made sure I could get in and get on with all necessities like milk, cookies and even chocolate as a bonus. Clean, comfortable!

Thank you Deborah and Kevin ! what a great review you are awesome people :) welcome anytime. The salami is so tasty, really kind of you and I am glad you had a well deserved holiday. To anyone reading the previous review from Harry, I responded to private feedback about advice the stove dials have maximum heat lower on the dial which is opposite to what is normally expected, and that I would let guests know (and that I didn't know myself) so sorry if the comment seemed odd :)

Great place to stay. This cosy cottage was just what we needed to be near our family reunion. Everything was as in the photos and descriptions, but also many thanks for the warm welcome and the home-made Christmas cake. Thank you
