Description

  • Private and Secluded
  • A minute to the beach
  • Quiet yet so close to AUCKLAND

Rata Cottage is truly a home away from home and can be described as ‘absolutely charming’. Nestled at the end of a long private driveway, the home and its lovely garden are a delightful surprise. The quiet and peacefulness of the surroundings is immediately evident, and lush native gardens encircle the property. Everything about this home and property is pleasing to the eye.

That this lovely home is warm and welcoming goes without saying... A cosy outdoor patio with its glass roof and tensioned awnings enables you to either have the full el fresco feel with all the blinds rolled up, or block out the breeze or inclement weather by rolling them down. Comfortable outdoor furniture makes this a great spot to take an afternoon nap in the sun or read a book, and the 6-burner BBQ makes this a perfect area for entertaining in all weather.

The spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area has a simple elegance and is charmingly appointed with its comfy furniture and eclectic native artwork. And you’ll certainly enjoy preparing meals in the modern well designed kitchen with all the modern easy to use appliances any chef would be happy to cook with. A fireplace adjacent to the kitchen/living room provides cosy winter warmth and there’s always plenty of firewood on hand.

The master bedroom has French doors which open out to the gardens and the surrounding native trees providing a delightful backdrop to the distinctly appealing decor. The second bedroom has one entire wall of windows which makes this a very light and bright room. Each of the three bedrooms is furnished with style and supreme comfort in mind. The ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom is a special feature with its French doors and bi-fold windows which brings the garden into the bathroom and will transport you to an exotic spa as you soak in the luxurious bath.

    Lovely property, well maintained in a great location, tucked away down the driveway, just magic.

  • Cheltenham Cottage was beautiful - compact, airy, with lots of natural light

    Cheltenham Cottage was beautiful - compact, airy, with lots of natural light. Good appliances, TV, showers, a huge bath. It's two minutes' walk from a great beach (perfect for families) and great walks, whether along the beach or up and round a headland which has superb vistas. Great little shops a five minute walk away (including an excellent French cafe/bakery). Other beaches a fairly short walk away. Near Devonport, a lovely little town, and thus to the ferry boat across to Auckland city.

    This is a great option for a family as it really is a home from home with all the luxuries (a fabulous coffee machine and a massive bath to relax in) and amenities you need. With such close proximity to the beach which is often so quiet it's like your own private beach it's perfect, it's an easy stroll to the ferry terminal so you can get to the city without having to drive or catch a ferry to Waiheke. We had a really lovely stay and were made to feel really welcome. Thank you
