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.

  • If you want to escape the world for a while, cuddle up...

    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.

  • Cosy cottage at a very reasonable rate

    Cosy cottage at a very reasonable rate. Perfect quiet weekend getaway within a stones throw of Auckland. We especially enjoyed sitting on the verandah, reading and enjoying the view. Had a very pleasant walk on the farm track down into the valley at the northern end of the farm.

  • The cottage was exactly as described

    The cottage was exactly as described. We were looking for an opportunity to unplug and enjoy the natural beauty of New Zealand- which is exactly what we found. For Americans- the trek to the cottage was a little unnerving due to the driving on the left side of the road and the gravel road- but Nona's directions were very accurate and we arrived safe and sound. We spent the majority of our time exploring the ranch, hanging out with the cattle and sheep and soaking in the beauty.
