Smart Cottage is a rustic (2011), self contained 1 bedroom cottage, set on 7ha minutes from New Plymouth city.

Smart Cottage is constructed using ply & batten cladding. Fully insulated, the inside has many natural timber features. Check out the fabulous log & slab ceiling.

Our location is fantastic, as we are in the rural zone, but so close to the city & all it has to offer.

A garage, supermarket, chemist, cafes, bakery, liquor outlets, restaurants & shops are less than a 5min drive away.

A 5min drive and you are on one of 2 golf courses, the fabulous Coastal Walkway or at Fitzroy or East End Beach, both of which are patrolled. The beaches are also great for surfing, kitesurfing and fishing, with paddling pools & a playground for small children at Fitzroy,

A short walk or cycle via the Coastal Walkway brings you to a leash free beach for dogs.

A Mountain Bike track is just down the road & a lake for waterskiing, park, zoo, Bowl of Brooklands concert venue, Rugby Stadium & Racecourse are all within a 10minute drive.

You can see Mt Taranaki from the Cottage. It is just a short drive away.

The section is fully fenced and we welcome outdoor pets. We can even accommodate horses, No extra charge for pets. Please bring pets own food & bedding. There is a dog kennel on site, but pets are welcome to sleep on the porch. Please clean up after your pets.

Smart Cottage is ideal for couples, and there is also a double sofa bed in the living area.

A wooden cavity sliding door separates the bedroom & bathroom from the living area.

A highchair is available.

There is plenty of offroad parking for your boat, truck, float etc.

Fitted out with luxurious linen & top quality chattels, you just have to sit back, relax, and soak up the cosy atmosphere Smart Cottage has. It oozes character and the promise of good times to be had.

We look forward to seeing you and your pets sometime soon.

  • Fantastic little cottage, well maintained and clean

    Fantastic little cottage, well maintained and clean. Felt like we were staying out in the country, but its a very short drive into New Plymouth. Fantastic spot to explore the Taranaki region. I've recommended to friends and we will be back for sure.
