Looking for a holiday home with character and history? Look no further than Islay Cottage that features all the comforts of a modern holiday home, coming from an extensive restoration.

Built in 1851 by Thomas Kent, who arrived onboard one of the first four ships to Canterbury, the ''Cressy'', Islay Cottage is listed as a grade two heritage home. Islay Cottage was highly commended in the 2021 Heritage Awards.

Spend your days exploring the surrounding areas, such as nearby Christchurch or the coastal towns, bays and beach areas as well as the hills.

This 3-bedroom holiday home is a beautiful cottage perched on a hill overlooking the harbour of Lyttelton and the beautiful surrounding hills. The living room indoors has a comfortable living space as well as a smart TV. Cooking will be a pleasure whilst being able to enjoy the views through the windows. At the end of the day, unwind in your bedrooms that feature Queen and Single-sized beds.

The home is just a short 10-minute walk away from the town’s coffee shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Central Christchurch is only a 15-minute drive away, where you’ll be able to explore the South Island’s largest city. In the summer months, head to nearby Cass and Corsair Bays, or head over to Sumner Beach, where you’ll be able to spend time relaxing by the sea.

Abel Tasman National Park is the smallest National Park in New Zealand, but it is one of the most scenic. Abel Tasman boasts pristine white sandy beaches, tranquil estuaries and wonderful forested headlands. The Coastal Track is world famous, and visitors can choose to explore it on their own, or with a guide. Other ways to explore the coastline include sea kayaking, yacht, or water taxis. At the southern entrance to Abel Tasman National Park there is fantastic opportunity for visitors to swim with seals.
