    The cottage had everything we needed and was perfectly laid out for a couple travelling with a small child. A short drive to Omapere/Opononi and the kauri forest, with lots of lovely beaches and walks.

  • This property was a wonderful retreat from the city

    This property was a wonderful retreat from the city. It was tidy and comfortable. I really enjoyed walking the gardens and Dorothy's generosity in letting me take fruit, veges, and flowers home with me. I'm already recommending the cottage to friends.
