    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.

  • Location was beautiful

    Location was beautiful. Cottage is surrounded by greenery so it was a beautiful place to stay. It was very peaceful and relaxing! 5 mins away from the beach was perfect!
