Apart from the Lodge (on the same property) there is a fully equipped 1930’s cottage where the hosts live – our home (with character and plenty of history!)

It is a seperate building, smaller and much more simple than the Lodge, but charming, lovingly refurbished and on the same site, providing views to the sea and the gardens. Hammock and outdoor chairs 🙂
It might be the perfect option for those who want to keep it simple but still would love to add on an extra highlight to their Stewart Island stay. Additional to the usual entrance a private bush path leads up to the cottage. It has a kitchen and lounge, two bedrooms, one bathroom and another separate toilet. You are welcome to share the cottage with the hosts, and have the guest bedroom with floor to ceiling windows facing the sunrise and the sea, getting sun in first thing in the morning and most of the day. Also it has now French doors opening on a lovely deck under Rata Trees, where you have views of the sea to both sides – to Foveaux Strait and Paterson Inlet.
There is an own toilet with good size handbasin for your private use (not en suite). Shower to be shared
. Cost $195 per night for a couple or single traveller (just-room-rate, no meals a.o. extras included. Sorry, no cooking facilities). You can use our kitchen in the morning to do yourself a simple breakfast or enquire for Gourmet Breakfast ($29 per person, subject to availability).

Ask for breakfast and other treats additional and in advance:

Sauna/ Hot Tub $120,
Guided Garden Tour (New Zealand ferns, trees, orchids and birds),
Dinner ($99 per person) or dine out. There is a limited number of eateries in the village.
Find descriptions below “Lodging deluxe”
(All extras are subject to availability – if there is capacity at the Lodge)
