Although the cottage is attached to our villa it is completely independent and privately accessed allowing you the opportunity to have a quiet and private stay. I like whenever possible to welcome you on your arrival, but following that I respect your privacy although always happy to offer advice and assistance when asked.

I emigrated to New Zealand with my husband Sim and now 3 adult children in 2007. Sim went from an RAF Officer to Sales and Marketing Manager at a wholesale nursery, and loves it. A nurse by profession, I continue to practise part time and manage our little piece of paradise and self catering business -Oaks Cottage.
I love socialising with family and friends; tramping and walking the Jasper the dog on the beach; relaxing in the hammock with a good book; listening to music especially live and developing my ever growing garden.
Of course my other passion is travel. There's nothing better than planning the next adventure, experiencing new destinations and rediscovering old haunts too.
I don't have a motto as such, but do quite like to go with the flow, think variety is the spice of life and try not to worry about things I can't change.
