Private peaceful & sunny little cabin with stunning valley views,overlooking native bush with bird-life in abundance.This is eco-living at its best-complete with solar panel for the shower,outdoor kitchen which is very well equiped & completely covered & a newly built compost loo in a magical position- down a little path next to a little gurgling stream.This is only 1 year old & is is designed using re-cyled materiels .to have the least impact on the natural environment possible.The water is all filterd rain water. This is one of the few places left which is free from all cell phone frequencies & wi-fi-a perfect place to re-charge & relax.Broadband internet is available close by if needed .Also a phone for emergencies.

Bethells Beach is a wild beach with black sands-great for surfing &.waliking-only 6 mins drive away.There are amazing bush walks at Cascade Kauri only 5 mins drive & a lovely cool river for swimming.

The owner lives in a house close by if needed -yet the cabin is completely private.Could be a good writers retreat or for a romantic getaway-there is a brazier to sit around under the stars.

This is a gorgeous place in a special location at an affordable price.

    Nice out look and very peaceful. Unfortunately it was pretty cold and no heating system is provided which made for a few cold nights wouldn't recommend it for winter.

    Hi George Thanks for your feedback .It was a shame you did not talk to me about it -I could have given you a heater Many people light the outdoor fire & that warms up quite a bit of the space .I suppose as you were working a lot & it was unsocial hours it was maybe not possible for you to do that .I sleep with windows open & no heat as I am used to the cold I suppose .We are all different .Hard for me to second guess what other people need .
