Tucked away in six acres of native New Zealand bush, Nikau Cottage provides the most private and secluded eco-accommodation you could wish for. Nikau Cottage captures the essence of a New Zealand experience. Relaxed, peaceful, a perfect retreat to enjoy the presence of your loved one.

Nikau Cottage has a real "treetops" feel with the loft bedroom nestled amidst native Kanuka, Totara, Tree Ferns and, of course, Nikau Palms. View the stars from the heated, pure rain water hot tub at night. Sleep to the call of the Morepork Owl and awake to the beautiful sound of the Tui. It's also the perfect stopover to, or from, the Bay of Islands.

Nikau Cottage is suitable for those seeking peace and tranquillity and an opportunity to discover and enjoy New Zealand's semi-subtropical Northland region.

The many fine beaches, golf course and villages are all accessible within 5-15 minutes drive by car.

Special conditions: 2 night minimum booking required. 3 night minimum booking required over Christmas, Easter, Labour, Anniversary and Waitangi Weekends. A garbage bin and recycle bin are provided outside the cottage for placement of all rubbish. Please remember this is a peaceful location and that excessive noise will not be permitted. We ask, as a matter of courtesy, that the property is left in a clean and tidy state (including washing dishes and cleaning BBQ).

  • Fantastic place if you're looking to get out of the rat race...

    Fantastic place if you're looking to get out of the rat race for a couple of days. We loved the hot tub out in the bush under the stars

    This was an elegant piece of paradise in the hub of country surroundings. Hard to find and glad we did as we were very happy with the property. Super clean and modern but with an ambience of nostalgia and country comfort at the same time :D couldn't have been happier with our time here! loved it and loved the hosts, glad we got to meet them as they added to the warmth we received from this little hideaway holiday home :D
