What Past Guests Are Saying
Comfortable, plenty of room for everyone - including teenagers!
As a couple, we have stayed here before and enjoyed the bungalow very much. So when our daughter and her husband and teenage son came to visit in December, taking them for a night in Bluff was very attractive. They enjoyed it so much that we took two of our other grandchildren (aged 11 and 9) in January. Sue and Mac have provided a range of videos, books and games that appealed to the 3 age levels, so even if the weather is bad, everyone is occupied. The bungalow has a front porch, lounge room, a sitting room off the main bedroom, and a sitting area in the dining room - so plenty of space for us all to do our thing or to be together. Heating is via a wood fire and a gas fire, plus electric heaters are also available. The owners provide internet access via a mobile connection. There are two accesses - one up about 10 steps to the front door, accessed from the driveway, the other from the road along a level path to the back door. Views from the house out to the harbour are awesome. It's a good 10 min walk to Bluff township. About the same in the opposite direction to where the SH1 begins at Stirling Point. Lovely restaurant there called the Drunken Sailor - even better sea views - sometimes you can see the Stewart Island Ferry come in. We've walked around Bluff Hill. There is a resident sea lion on the beach - sad to say he was not home on these two visits, but we have seen him in the past. So for a couple, or large family, the bungalow is suitable and comfortable.

Thank you Stephanie and Niel that is a wonderful review

Relaxing at the beginning of the world!
Very comfortable bungalow with all the amenities. We were there in the spring. The weather was cool but we were cozy with a gas fireplace in the living room and a wood stove in the dining room/kitchen that also served to super-heat the hot water. The electric blankets on every bed made for great sleeping. A short walk to Bluff galleries, food and a liquor store with a fine selection of wines. If hiking is your thing, there are well-maintained trails close by that offer great views and the sounds of Keas and other southland birds. A short walk to the ferry makes the bungalow in Bluff a great jumping off point for Stewart Island and Rakiura National Park. All in all, a great place to relax, recharge, and experience Kiwi ambiance.
