Sandpiper Ocean Cottages, Douglas River
Cosy cottage with all a family needs
Because we're not the rustic style types we booked the newer, accessible 2 br cottage, called 'Hanalei'. Comfortably, sensibly and attractively furnished with everything we (three of us, including two teenagers) needed. Thoughtful inclusions in the kitchen to make self-catering easier, plus the offer at reception to help out with extras like spices. Roll-in/out shower and ramp access to entrance of course. Surprisingly spacious especially in the bathroom/laundry. 10km drive to Bicheno which I decided I didn't want to do at night - so we stayed in and watched DVDs from the library at reception. Comfy beds. Verandah overlooking park-like grounds populated by foraging chooks and with quirky features. Stroll through grounds to gorgeous Denison Beach. This place would be magnificent in summer when guests could best take advantage of the outdoors, but we found the cottage cosy and comfy in cold weather too with three very effective wall panel heaters. No dishwasher, which did not trouble me. Only concern was finding that some items in the kitchen cupboards had not been washed properly by a previous guest (a problem often found in serviced accommodation). Otherwise the whole cottage was perfectly clean. Would love to return one day.

Great stay
The cottage was clean and comfortable. It had a very short walk to the beach. The kitchen was very well set up. Would suit singles to families.

Beachside paradise
A very relaxing paradise by the beach near Bicheno. The cottages were well equipped and the log fire on the cool night was lovely. A short stroll down to the beach to watch the spectacular sunrise.

A wonderful place to stay . Well located a minutes walk to the beach. Also close to Freycinet National Park. The cottage had wonderful, comfy beds and was extremely well fitted out with BBQ facilities and all you need for self catering, Tony was a great host with excellent tips on things to do, would highly recommend this place to stay.
