This is a romantic hideaway with the wow factor. Purpose built for a romantic night away with that special person, the love shack is set on the cliff face of Fitzroy Bay on the outer reaches of Wellington Harbour. From the deck of the cottage boast some of the most stunning panoramic views in the world such as the Wellington City lights at night, the snow-capped Kaikoura Ranges in the South Island, and the rugged coastline. You might also watch the dolphins and whales amidst the busy shipping lane.

All on your own, surrounded by 1000 acres of farmland, yet only 15 minutes from Eastbourne by road or 2 minutes 50 seconds from Wellington Airport by helicopter and you don't have to be a millionaire to enjoy this. The ultimate experience of seclusion and intimacy.
