This ocean-facing beach house is perfect for families with children, as is the surrounding area. In Oben, also known as Stewart Island, guests can enjoy nature walks in various locations. Some of these nature walks, such as Observation Rock, are suitable for strollers, while others, such as Fuchsia and Raroa walks, Lonnekers Beach – Ringaringa Beach, Bathing Beach, and Fern Gully, are more suited to families with children that can walk independently. Moturau Moana is a botanical garden that would be perfect for families with infants and young children. Other walks that are much longer in duration, such as Harrold Bay and Acker's Point, Kaipipi Bay, Ryans Creek, and Horseshoe Point are more suitable for adults and adolescents, as these hikes range from two to four hours. All of the above-mentioned nature walks start from the Rakiura National Park Visitor Centre.

As the beach is footsteps away from the cottage, guests will easily be able to enjoy countless beach activities, such as swimming, yoga, and sunbathing. The beach is ideal for children as it is very safe. Kayaks are also available for guests to use.

Within the town of Oban, guests can find numerous cafes and restaurants, as well as local shops to purchase gifts and souvenirs. There are also Internet cafes and public telephones within the town. Furthermore, there are numerous tour companies where guests can hire charters to take them out to sea.
