Located only 90 minutes from Auckland this is a cosy studio cottage located on a

working farm so there is lots to see and experience whether you choose to stay put

or get out and explore.

On the property:

There are three QEII Reserves, which are available to explore at your leisure.

The opportunity to walk through valleys with fascinating limestone rock

formations and the natural beauty surrounding you is quite breathtaking and it is well worth it.

The wild life includes goats, turkeys, peacocks, hares and birdlife.

You may get to see aspects of the farm in action if we happen to be moving the animals

or could be able to share experiences with you. Please email directly with questions around this

if you are after some farm time.

Or you could just relax on the deck and soak up the view and

peaceful surroundings that this unique part of New Zealand offers.

Definitely a great opportunity to detox and recharge your batteries!

Or if you do want to get out and explore the area a bit more:

The Tasman Sea is a few miles to the West as the crow flies, so you could drive to Port Waikato and enjoy the beach or

head south only 20 minutes and explore the near by Nikau Caves and have a coffee fix at their cafe

Not far is also the Waingaro Hot Springs and several country pubs such as the Rangiriri Hotel.

Mercer is back on SH1 where there is Mercer Cheese which is worth a look and other amenities.

Down SH1 a bit further there is also the Greenstone Museum and shop at Te Kauwhata which is worth checking out.

This property is definitely for those looking to unwind. Bring everything you need with you as the nearest supermarket is 40mins away at Tuakau / Pukekohe.

Cellphone coverage is limited for Vodafone customers so this really is your chance to get away from it all.

Special conditions:

Couple or single person preferred due to the size of the cottage.

No pets allowed as this is a working farm.

Smoking allowed outside only.

Must respect that you are on a Farm and close all farm gates that you open.

NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);

    I stayed a full week at this Fabulous little cottage in the hills, I did a full 7 day digital detox, that was bliss, I was surrounded by the most beautiful countryside for walking and the most warm and welcoming hosts. I will be returning again for another RESET :) Thank you so much for making this space available.

    If you want to escape the world for a while, cuddle up with a book and watch some nature. This is the house for you. It’s close enough to not be too far but you feel like you’re miles away. Recharge and zone out! I will be back as soon as I can! Ps. Lambie is the best visitor who comes and tells you little stories during the day.
