The newly refurbished, self contained Glenfern Cottage is positioned overlooking Pt Fitzroy and is set in a private location among mature gardens and lawns. You have immediate access to the private wharf, floating deck and boat shed down the path in front of the cottage, where kayaks are available for your use. The Pt Fitzroy store and boatclub/pub are a brief 10 minute walk (or kayak) away, and other day and o/n walks are easily accessed from the property.
This is an ideal holiday home for those with a boat for fishing and exploring the harbour and coastline, or as a base from which to explore the island on foot or by vehicle. Glenfern Cottage and Fitzroy House are both located within Glenfern Sanctuary; a 240 ha fenced, pest controlled restoration project where you can experience some of New Zealand's wildlife at its best. Guided or self guided walks are available which include access to the crown of a Kauri tree via a swing bridge.

Fitzroy House is the original homestead on the property and has been extensively renovated and refurbished; offering spacious living areas, functional modern kitchen, 5 large bedrooms (2 with ensuites) and separate bathroom. This homestead sleeps 8+. Available for holiday rental summer, or rent both the cottage and homestead for large family get togethers, weddings or corporate functions.

Suited our family perfectly- walks, fishing, hanging out.
Special location being based in the Sanctury and we loved all the bird-life. The view is fabulous, we caught snapper off the wharf, there's lots of great walks and endless things to do as well as all the peace & tranquility you'd expect. It was a perfect holiday and location and we loved the cottage.
Emma is a great host and we always enjoy our stay. Look forward to next year.
the sanctuary is such a special place.. the views magnificent, the birdlife extraordinary, our hosts informative and helpful.. loved it
The cottage is really comfortable and cosy with all you need for a comfortable stay. Having the floating dock just down the path made it a simple process every morning and evening to get out on the boat to enjoy the Barriers fantastic coastline. First Kngfish for the boat on this trip 18.5kg Yay! I would highly recommend a stay in Seaview Cottage and will definitely be back.
A wonderful holiday that surpassed our expectations. The island was a pleasure to experience and explore, but this accommodation was outstanding. We were made to feel welcome by both the staff and volunteers, and they were happy to answer our many questions about both the wildlife around the sanctuary and the island activities. Swimming and kayaking in the harbour were a delight, and the visits from various birds a real bonus. We truly did not want to leave, and are already planning our return.
