Description

Relax by the wood burner, walk down the garden path to the Glen Eden river and admire the Tui, Kereru & Fantail in the established trees.

Located just beside our historic school house, it is private & super comfortable with quirky decor and artwork throughout. There is a rustic outdoor bath to relax in under the stars & garden views from every room.

Just around the corner you'll find Charlies Gelato garden, the Matakana markets & superb cinema, The pub (a must visit), Ascension Wine Estate and much more.

Minutes from Omaha beach, Tawharanui and Goat Island marine reserve. Perfect retreat from the city with private access to the river and use of our kayaks. We also have a divine vintage & homewares shop on-site.

Come and rejuvenate at a little corner of paradise.

AS OF MAY 2017 WE ARE BUILDING A NEW DWELLING ONSITE. SOME LANDSCAPING MAY CAUSE ISSUES BUT INSIDE IS CLEAN AND TOASTY. THE UPDATED BARGAIN PRICE SHOULD COVER ALL AND ANY INCONVENIENCES. BUILDING OCCURS MIDWEEK FROM 8AM...IF YOU WOULD LIKE DETAILED PHOTOS OF HOW CLOSE IT IS TO THE COTTAGE - PLEASE ASK...ITS NOT TOO BAD AT ALL.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only. Not suitable for children. 2 night minimum applies at all times. Otherwise there is. $40 fee to cover linen and cleaning. We have lots of animals on the property including our 3 pet dogs. They are very friendly so please let us know if you do not like dogs and we will do our best to make sure they don't bother you. If you have a chicken phobia (it's a real thing), this may not be the place for you! :) 7 nights max stay.

  • It is a bit like having a home away from home

    It is a bit like having a home away from home. A small cottage with room to move around and put your feet up, you feel at ease and comfortable staying here. All this in small farm holding surrounds and so close to everything on the Hibiscus and Matakana Coastline

    This is a beautiful cottage with lovely decor and close to Matakana. We really enjoyed our stay here. The upstairs bedroom is like a sanctuary and very cosy and relaxing.
