Description

  • We invite you to come and experience our lifestyle block and share a piece of paradise.
  • Layers Lodge cottage is cosy, clean and fully equipped for all year round comfort.
  • Only a stone throw away from the numerous glorious beaches & attractions that make up Doubtless Bay

A warm welcome awaits you at Layers Lodge, this self-contained cottage offers you the perfect place to escape, relax and immerse yourself (if you wish) in country life. Feed the ducks, chooks, collect eggs with our family or enjoy your own privacy and space.

This cottage has a well equipped kitchen, quality linen, a large deck with outdoor furniture and spa pool, and all the comforts of home.

We offer unlimited guest access to our gardens, you are welcome to help yourself from the veggie garden, herb garden and orchard as the seasons provide their bounty. We have seven acres for you to explore, head down to the pond, cross the bridge and find a seat to sit and appreciate the native flora and fauna. Children are very welcome with well behaved parents as supervision by the creek and pond is needed.

Please be aware we have a young family of our own who love the company of others, although we encourage them to stay away should guests prefer this. They are happy to share toys, trampoline and bikes etc. If you are looking for true romance and seclusion this may not be the right place for you.

We are perfectly situated over looking Oruru valley with countryside views yet we are only 5kms from the coast. A folder with local opportunities is provided to help you explore and make the most of what this great neighbourhood has to offer. We have plenty of space for parking and a turn around making easy access for a boat trailer. Bait freezer and freezer space are available for your catch of the day.

Please note we do not allow smoking inside the cottage or on the property.

    Location is perfect - close to the beach but away from the main coastal road - lots of beautiful beaches easily accessible but in lovely countryside with plenty of chickens, ducks and Charlotte to keep the little ones entertained. We will be recommending Layers Lodge to all of our friends.

  • The description provided is 100%

    The description provided is 100%. We have 2 young boys and their time on the farm was the best part of their holiday. They got on exceptionally well with the owners kids and spent most of the time riding their bikes and playing games, just like we did many years ago. The beaches are only 5km drive away so you have the best of both worlds for a holiday. Everything was very clean which was great as so many places these days are not cleaned properly. Thanks for a great stay. Cheers Craig

    The property was a spotless cottage, set up very well, including spacious deck, spa, and large umbrella. The location of Taipa Beach in Doubtless Bay is outstanding - we had no idea such a beautiful part of New Zealand existed. Beach is a lovely cove, great waves and very dog-friendly. It is within good range of Cable Bay, Cooper's Beach and Mangonui.

  • We loved the cottage! It was so beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean

    We loved the cottage! It was so beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. It also had a real bygone Kiwi vibe to it which was perfect! The beds were really comfy and the hot tub was a HUGE hit, as was the trampoline and the amazing gardens and animals. A lovely place to spend a few days, thank you!
