Description

Come and unwind with nature at our self contained cottage. The perfect spot to de-stress, in an idyllic setting beside the river. With large grounds, spa pool and covered deck to enjoy the privacy, peace and quiet. You won't want to go home.

Only 5 minutes from Katikati township, cafes and supermarket. Waihi Beach, Karangahake Gorge, Tauranga and Mt. Maunganui all close by. Plenty of attractions in surrounding area (if you can drag yourself away) .

Our cottage is compact but clean and comfortable. The water is filtered and safe for drinking from the kitchen. The TV has freeview and you are welcome to bring your own Sky de-coder. It also has USB, HDMI inputs, so BYO music and/or movies.

The metal driveway previously wound down to the cottage through our pine forest, which has now been harvested, but the oasis at the bottom is still as welcoming as before. Check out our previous reviews - pre 2009.

Special conditions:

Two night minimum stay. Ideal for couples wanting to chill out.

Children welcome but must be fully supervised due to close proximity of river.

Limited Wi-Fi available by arrangement only

Driveway not suitable for boats or caravans, but plenty of parking elsewhere on property.

Advised to bring insect repellent as midgees can sometimes be a problem.

    Long overdue feedback for our stay in November - thought we had already done it. Lovely little place, clean and well-maintained. Perfect for a weekend getaway - the spa made it just that much better! Great memories of time well-spent.

    Absolutely fabulous peaceful location, all the charm of a traditional bach brought right up to date with quality fittings and appliances. The full kitchen makes this a perfect retreat, and the spa pool is a luxurious extra. The steep gravel drive may be a little challenging for nervous drivers, but the glorious section and unspoiled river are among the best we've chosen. If you don't fancy driving back up the hill to access the free wifi, a phone hotspot works just fine.

  • This place is absolutely gorgeous

    This place is absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful comfy bed with a view of the river. There's a really nice swimming hole and you can go straight from the cool river to the hot spa. Absolute privacy and peace. Highly recommend!
