Little Colonsay Beach House

We have recently added this lovely beach home to our accommodation offering. Situated right near the beach, so close you can hear the waves and the sea, this beach house is a true Kiwi bach experience. The home is situated with easy access to the sandy beach, which is perfect to stroll along.

Painting and renovations in progress, Little Colonsay will be available for the Easter holidays.
The Kitchen has a oven and microwave. The dishwasher will installed in time for our summer season, as well as a new BBQ.

Exciting building projects will keep us busy during the winter. We are building a new sleepout (Like we have up at Gunyah) as well as the addition of new doors opening from the lounge onto a new deck, an outside shower and extra toilet.
