What our guests say

“The house was beautiful and so convenient for pub/shop/breakfast cafe/beach etc which are all at the bottom of the road. The owners went out of their way to ensure that I was very comfortable and had everything that might be required. Netflix was provided for when you got tired of enjoying the view from the balcony and being able to use amenities such as the BBQ and washing machine was very useful. The garden was lovely and full of birds, including a Kaka which came to visit me in the mornings and lots of Tuis chattering in the evenings. The worm toilet was an added bonus and gave you the feel of real island living!

We loved Cabbage Tree Cottage, a perfect base to relax. Close to the shop/cafe and swimming beaches great views and this place has everything you need. The perfect place to recharge and enjoy the island.

“This place is a little slice of bliss. Literally down the road from Tryphena central shop, cafe, pub, and beach. Mountains of books await and thoughtful hosts. Birdlife swoops above the deck and around a tree-filled backyard with a peek of sea view. A great ‘off the grid’ experience.”

Clean and tidy and fully stocked with everything you could need. Heaps of amazing books to peruse in front of the fire. Awesome location, highly recommended!

“The home was super cozy and the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the island. I love how eco-conscious the owners are and very willing to share their island knowledge with guests.”
