  • Lovely oasis, if it's peace you want it's the ideal location

    Lovely oasis, if it's peace you want it's the ideal location. Despite the wet weather, it was airtight and warm. The homely touches are much appreciated. No wifi, which is a plus in my books as it's a place for you to connect with yourself and nature. Composting toilet was clean and loved the extra touches e.g. hygiene, smellies, eco solutions. The outdoor shower was a fun experience :)

  • Property is really nice and unique

    Property is really nice and unique. The owner's house is however reasonably close and cant really tell that based on the photos provided. Regardless it is still a wonderful place and would highly recommend.

    Our stay was made incredibly special by this quaint Eco-friendly Te Aute Ridge Cottage. It was the perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed the outdoor shower and spent some time laying in bed watching and listening to the birds just outside the open french doors. We played board games and watched DVD's with warm cups of coffee under the blankets. The Waitere ranges provide a beautiful backdrop to walk and explore. We plan to go back every year.

  • This is a cute bush haven within easy reach of the city

    This is a cute bush haven within easy reach of the city. The cottage is rustic but very cosy and nestled right in the bush, with kereru hanging out in the trees above. The outdoor shower is gorgeous and the breakfast supplies are generous and tasty. The composting toilet is outside, so not recommended for those scared of night-time bugs. Stunning Bethells Beach is just down the road - check out the Friday night free live music.
