  • 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.

    Great location for anyone needing to attend an event at the Boutique Barn, walking distance! Not located near the Puhoi pub.
