Close to Orewa. We are located in Wainui, approx 30 minutes from Auckland Harbour Bridge. Stand alone cottage set in native bush setting, part of a 20 acre kauri forest reserve. Several bush trails, swing bridge and a freshwater stream running through the property plus plenty of native birds, flora and fauna.
Cottage is fully self contained, has it's own driveway, one bedroom with a queen size bed and living room with a roll out settee (which sleeps 2), fully equipped kitchen and separate bathroom, private deck facing North towards the bush.
Lynn and Peter's house can be reached by walking along the wooden board walk and also leads to the swing bridge and a dam.
Close to Silverdale Snow Planet, Go-carts, Orewa beach and a short country drive to Waiwera hot pools.
Privacy and paradise at it's best.

Please note the following - we do welcome children and infants however we do NOT supply any cots or bedding for infants.

Cell phone coverage is limited.
Please note there is no TV.

Look forward to meeting you :-)
Feedback from our very first guests Rex and Barbara -

"Thank you. We had a lovely stay. Your cottage is comfortable and restful. The back deck is lovely overlooking the the bush.
We would recommend it to our friends.
The shower gel is a great idea instead of bars of soap. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is great!"

  •  Friendly owners, beautiful setting. No phone, wifi or tv - perfect for a complete time out getaway. 

  •  Our 2 nights at Kauri Ridge was the highlight of our holiday. Gorgeous and very well equipped accommodation in a truly stunning setting. Breakfasts on the deck surrounded by bush listening to the Tui and Wood pigeons...who could ask for more! The place was very clean and well furnished and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the bush walk through the Kauri Forrest. We highly recommend and look forward to returning in the future. 

  •  The bach and location was was just beautiful. It felt like we were miles away. It was a peaceful getaway for a couple of city slickers. We would love to return.
