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. We also provide a selection or tea/coffee/milk/cereal and toast.

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 TIDY. THE UPDATED BARGAIN PRICE SHOULD COVER ALL AND ANY INCONVENIENCES. BUILDING OCCURS WEEK DAYS 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. 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.

    Beautiful property and nice and quiet - loved the animals floating around, just had to be a bit careful of the dog :-)

  • Quirky but very comfortable cottage

    Quirky but very comfortable cottage. Close to Matakana. Incredibly comfortable bed. Only note is that the bathroom is downstairs and main bedroom up fairly narrow stairs - not a problem for us, but some visitors might need to understand this.

  • A fantastic quaint little cottage to stay in for a complete break...

    A fantastic quaint little cottage to stay in for a complete break from fast city life. The cottage has everything you need to relax, games, cards, lots of books and magazines, plenty of farmland to roam around in, and if you feel like it, a private outside bath (with hot water) to relax in. We were given fresh farm eggs, milk, muesli and some bread on arrival, which was a nice touch. Lots of wood for the fireplace, kept my husband happy. Would definitely stay again.
