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.

Look forward to meeting you :-)

 What a lovely warm, cosy cottage to stay in. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely visit again. Thank you to the lovely owners your property is a credit to you. 

 This was our second stay at Kauri Ridge and our return visit exceeded our expectations. The location is exquisite; Lynn and her husband are excellent hosts; and the cottage is packed with character. We will certainly be back. 

 Perfect location for everything we wanted to do. Beautiful, peaceful and unique setting- so private. We will certainly be back. Thank you. 

 The location is fabulous. Its a little hideaway in the bush, yet within close proximity of Silverdale and Orewa and all they have to offer. The house is well set up and has all you need for a great stay. 

 attractive setting, very clean and tidy and the heat pump made for a very cosy mid winter stay
