The Cafe Cottage is a honeymooners retreat with a South-Pacific feel.Set on 7 acres of beautiful palm gardens, this converted cafe use to be a real icon and meeting place in Point Wells- 3 minutes from Omaha Beach & 5 minutes to Matakana. A full makeover has taken place and the result is nothing short of stunning. You will feel like you have left New Zealand & arrived in Bali as you take temporary ownership of a garden that will leave you breathless set under a huge shade-cloth canopy which blocks harsh UV & drying winds & creates a lush landscape of palms under-planted with bromelaids & other sub-tropicals & interspersed with water features, truly worthy of any magazine.

Set on 7 acres, you will feel the pressures of the city slide away as you drive down the palm tree lined driveway. Enjoy all the area has to offer with markets, wineries, cafes & restaurants or entertain like a pro with the fully set up commercial kitchen that comes with the Cafe Cottage.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and the ensuite- bathroom is off the bedroom. Here lies the most stunning bathroom complete with underfloor heating, claw foot bath & oversized shower that feels like you are showering in the wilderness with only a sheet of glass between you and the lush sub-tropical foliage. There is provision for a 3rd & even a 4th person on a sofa bed in the lounge.

On the same property but about 300m away with its own separate entrance is the "Palm Sanctuary" a newly registered premises on Bookabach. Beautifully appointed, It sleeps up to 10 so can give you options for your group or extended family accommodation options! Feel free to book both and enjoy a 10% discount!

  • Fantastic oasis a hair's breadth from Auckland

    Fantastic oasis a hair's breadth from Auckland. The property is full of charm and character and beautifully presented. Feels like you are truly away from it all whereas Matakana, Tawharanui and the various beaches, vineyards and pubs are all within a stone's throw. For a couples weekend away it takes some beating.
