Like no other! Our cottage is private and peaceful yet smack dab in the middle of Oakura Village! Situated on our 8 acre farm, the cottage is truly unique and ideal place to stay for families or couples. Built in 2012, it is rustic on the outside and magical on the inside. Playfully decorated with antiques, retro and quirky furniture, it feels like a home. The cottage has a versatile floor plan and can accommodate two families or a large group; you can select either a two bedroom, three bedroom or four bedroom layout!! Please note that the maximum amount of adults is 8 as the sofa bed is designed for children.

Our incredible swimming hole huge, 12 ft. deep and a fantastic area for all to play. The water temperature is about the same as the ocean. It is located about 200 m from the cottage.

The village is a 7 minute walk. Oakura village has a cafe, bakery, 4-Square and the popular Butlers Reef Pub. The beach is 2 km away - you can walk through the Matekai Reserve or take a quick drive down. It is a patrolled beach during the summer. New Plymouth is a 12 minute drive if you need a big city!

Special conditions: The cottage can be booked for functions. Please email to inquire as the price structure is different for one night bookings. As the cottage is located by a pond, parents must be careful with little ones. There is a small fenced yard at the entry. I prefer to charge per room vs. individual. The 2 bedroom/1 bath layout (the retro side) is $250 per night, the 3 bedroom/2 bath layout (includes the antique twin bedroom - sleeps 6 adults) is $330 per night and the full cottage is $400 per night

  • Fantastic place, stunning and comfortable, well equipped

    Fantastic place, stunning and comfortable, well equipped. We were a group of 8 girls for a hen do, had an amazing time. Everyone has sworn to come back. Gorgeously decorated - made for some great pics! Great location too - so close to Oakura's shops to get basics but it felt so secluded down that driveway and surrounded by trees. For out-of-towners, it's a quick dive to New Plymouth central also (about 12 minutes). Will be back, thank you Shae and family!

  • Where do I start-'eclectic' is the word I would use for this...

    Where do I start-'eclectic' is the word I would use for this property which is so much more than a place to stay. It's an experience with fabulous views over the lily-pond, wonderful swimming hole, two separate living areas,interesting and original furnishings which left all who came amazed. We will return!
