  • The tranquility and peace of the valley is deafening. A perfect opportunity to get away from it all.
  • The modern studio is perfect for a relaxing stay; free wi-fi, Sky TV, air-con and heated floor.

For that peaceful, tranquil retreat, look no further than the Essential Garden studio accommodation. Surrounded by native bush, the sounds of modern living are left behind while you relax on your own private deck, enjoying the cheeky bird-life with their intoxicating song. Located just 15 minutes from the northern motorway, the peace and quiet will trick you into thinking you're on an island getaway.

The studio comprises a whole floor with separate bedroom and en-suite, lounge area and kitchenette. Fold-out bed available on request.

Take a walk through the internal roads on this 12-acre herb farm and enjoy the sights and smells of the Essential Garden. When you need a break from all this relaxation, you can visit the many local attractions within easy driving distance: the historic Puhoi Pub is a mere 10 minute drive, the Puhoi cheese factory close by. The picturesque Warkworth village with its famous chocolate factory, Matakana wineries and enticing Morris and James pottery is a further 10 minutes up the road.

  • Very smart studio in a nicely secluded spot

    Very smart studio in a nicely secluded spot. Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. All the modern conveniences and loved the heated floor in the bathroom and toilet. Pot of honey was perfect accompaniment to our breakfast cereal and yoghurt.

    Awesome location on n Puhoi. Quiet and incredibly scenic. The first night we were there, we could see the entire night sky. The studio was well maintained and cleaned, it made our stay very pleasant. Thank you!! We would love to come back sometime.
