  • 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.
  • The surrounding area has heaps to offer: Puhoi pub, cheese factory, Matakana wines, Morris & James

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.

    A wonderfully private and secluded property, A place to relax, unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet amongst the bush. The studio was very well set up and had all the amenities that we needed.

  • The Essential Garden house is an excellent residence

    The Essential Garden house is an excellent residence. I was on the sofa bed and it large and very comfortable. The house is clean, well laid out, and well furnished with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. The large windows and scenery are fantastic and I'd be happy to just lay back and look out the window. I loved the outdoor heater which lets you sit out at night and watch the stars. My only regret is that I didn't stay longer!

    Utilized the property as extra accommodation for bridesmaids for a wedding near by. Alasdair provides pick up and drop off, and ensured all guests were attended to. The property was gorgeous and comfortable. Highly recommend for anyone looking for somewhere comfortable, beautiful and hidden away from the bustle of the city.
