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).

    A beautiful cottage to in a lovely peaceful location. We'll later out with everything you could need for a relaxing retreat. Hot tub was awesome and always discreetly reheated and ready for us on our return. Wonderful location and hospitality.
