Serenity Cottage is a 2 bedroom holiday home located in Paihia. With plenty of outdoor space and all the essentials including limited WiFi, this little cottage is ideal for a fuss-free Northland getaway.

This charming cottage includes open plan living with a well-equipped kitchen. Bedroom 1 is fitted with a queen bed and bedroom 2 is set up perfectly for the kids with bunks and single bed. Summer evenings are well spent out on the deck with a BBQ, and in the winter the lounge is great for a movie night in.

With an estuary right off the property, you don’t have to go far for an afternoon of outdoor activities - simply take the complimentary kayaks and bicycles for a spin for some guaranteed family fun. Or head just a couple of minutes down the road to a white sandy swimming beach to cool off in the hot summer sun.

Head into Paihia town and explore the local shops and cafes. Just 11 minutes drive and you’ll end up at the beautiful Haruru Falls or go hiking along the Paihia-Opua Coastal Walkway and soak in the expansive coastal views.

Get away from the hustle and bustle, come stay at Serenity Cottage.

Note: If you’re travelling with other families, Sandy Toes Cottage (4214) and Paihia Bliss (4947) are located in the same complex.

  • Great location

    Great location. Great for kids just a bit too cold for swimming or kayaking now - but maybe next time. Certainly everything was available if you wanted to make use of it.

    It's a shame you didn't get to check out the kayaks with the colder days - we hope to see you again in the warmer months! Great to hear you otherwise enjoyed your stay! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Jill.

  • Great location and was clean

    Great location and was clean. Having kayak, bikes and gas grill was great. It rained during our short stay couldn’t use the washing machine because theirs NO dryer so had to pack up our wet clothes from the beach.
