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.

  • How often do you get a chance to live in close proximity...

    How often do you get a chance to live in close proximity to an old growth Kanuka and Nikau forest? This cottage is perfectly designed for the site and creates a wonderfully relaxed ambience with all the amenities that are taken for granted yet giving a wilderness experience a few minutes from beaches and services.

  • Exceeded our expectations, very convenient for site seeing, peaceful location, well setup...

    Exceeded our expectations, very convenient for site seeing, peaceful location, well setup the covered deck was perfect for relaxing on, the weber BBQ was amazing to use. We appreciated the hot tub being heated every afternoon. Have recommended the cottage to others for a quite undisturbed getaway.

  • AMAZING little slice of paradise

    AMAZING little slice of paradise. The perfect place for a near but far enough get away. Close to everything you could possibly need. The cottage was gorgeous and cozy, the hot tub was 10/10 and the property was relaxing and zen. Will definitely be back!!

  • Such a stunning cottage, beautiful decor, modern but cosy feel

    Such a stunning cottage, beautiful decor, modern but cosy feel. Loved the natural bush setting and the hot tub went down a real treat. Not far from Managawhai or the beautiful Te Ari beach. Highly recommend and would love to visit the place again!
