Idyllic seaside cottage (fully self contained)

Stunning sea views

Elegance, comfort and tranquility

The perfect place to get away from the city, but a short drive from the buzz of Wellington
Guthrie Cottage is the perfect weekend getaway, and great for a longer stay, too.

Sited right next to the beautiful Rona Bay Beach in Eastbourne, the cottage is a classic New Zealand bungalow, fully restored and updated to include modern conveniences for guests’ comfort.

Accommodation for two to five guests includes an up to date kitchen, gas central heating, two double bedrooms and an extra fold-out sofa bed.  The cottage is tastefully refurbished to create a stylish home-away-from-home ambiance. Suitable as a romantic get-away for honeymoon couples, busy executives wanting to relax, or families wanting a beach holiday with access to village life.

Enjoy the panoramic views across the sea to the glittering lights of Wellington.  You can watch the ferries from your front window, swim in the sea, take a candlelit bath in the garden, or just relax in elegant comfort.  Just 25 minutes from Wellington City.

Guthrie Cottage is suitable for all seasons:  In summer you can join the locals promenading, swim out to the raft or take a stroll to the village. Guthrie Cottage is the ideal retreat, whatever your needs – whether you want solitude or vibrant village life, to relax and read, or more energetically, to explore this beautiful coastline and regional park on foot or bicycle. Summer or winter, you can enjoy the many native bush walks, explore the bays, or cycle to Pencarrow and visit the lighthouses, lakes and wetlands.  You can fish off the wharf with the locals or just sit back and relax in the comfort of the cottage and watch the world and the ferries go by – and sometimes dolphins, orcas, and the occasional seal!

GC_featuresEastbourne boasts a vibrant artistic community offering cafes with great coffee, a wonderful local pub, a butcher who makes his own bacon and award-winning sausages, a fresh fruit and vegetable shop, a Four Square supermarket and a historic wharf!  If you want to browse or buy local art or books, head to Rona Gallery.


"Thanks for such a well equiped hoilday home located on the beach front and just out of the city so really nice and quiet.
We found the house extremely clean and warm and will stay here again next time we are in Wellington City, Cheers."
