Breakfast on the sunny deck overlooking an expanse of olive trees, or relax in the shade under the mature pine trees in your own little arbour. A breakfast basket can be supplied on request. 24 hour notice required.

Plenty of outdoor seating for your BBQ or entertaining friends in the long summer evenings.

Your children are welcome to visit our chooks and feeding and collecting eggs can be arranged. Depending on the olive picking season, usually April/ May, guests in our cottage can join in the olive picking. We will show you how to pickle your own olives. Take some Poppawhiwhi marinated olives home with you to impress your friends and family!

Let the sound of the waves on nearby Karikari Beach and Tokerau Beach sing you to sleep.

We are more than happy to help clean your fish. We can smoke your fish for you or vacuum pack and freeze your fish for you to take home with you when you leave.

    Lovely cottage, everything you could need for a relaxIng stay provided. Great location - close to local beaches and gorgeous far north must-see's. Perfect for our trip to Cape Reinga at sunset! Would definitely stay again.

    The cottage had everything we needed, was very comfortable and we enjoyed living in an olive orchard. The Karikari Peninsula is beautiful - we knew nothing about it before we booked - and we loved its white sand beaches. We were only twenty minutes from Kaitaia in one direction and the same to Coopers Beach in the other. We decided not to drive up to Cape Reinga, having done it several times before, so explored the beaches off that drive north - a very worthwhile alternative.
