The SpaceWelcome/Haere Mai! If you are looking for a place to unwind, take in the beauty of NZ's native nature and enjoy several beaches on walking distance, this is your place to stay. Standard LATE CHECK-OUT and private IN-ROOM GOURMET style breakfast.
If you are looking for a place to stay where you can unwind, take in the beauty of New Zealands native nature and enjoy several beaches on walking distance, then The Sunny Side Up is the place to stay for you. As you are on a holiday and want to leave the stress behind, a late check-out (13:00) is standard with us, so you can turn breakfast into brunch if you like! There is a cot available and we are more than happy to babysit bubs in the evenings if you'd like to go out with just the two of you.
On arrival relax with a cup of tea, home roasted coffee or cold drink in room or outside. Enjoy with a treat, this could be baking, ice cream or chocolates but is always homemade. Your double room is spacious with en suite shower/toilet/sink. In the private breakfast area you'll find complimentary coffee and tea facilities, homemade baked goods and savory snacks. Plates/bowls and cutlery are also available if you wish to enjoy a quiet night in bringing in takeaways. The queen size bed has quality linen, so comfortable you might find it hard to get up for breakfast. But the smell of home roasted coffee, baked cinnamon pears and ovenbaked bacon for example will probably seduce you to move on to the in-room breakfast area where you can enjoy your luxurious breakfast/brunch.
The privacy of in-room dining and the unrushed late check-out time makes it especially the place to stay for those special (romantic) get aways and celebrations. Furthermore ideal for those traveling with a campervan or boat trailer as there is spacious free off street parking available. Babies/toddlers are welcome as there is a cot available and we are more than happy to babysit during the evening if you'd like to go out with just the two of you.
