Description

  • Artists retreat or unique family experience

  • Rural aspects with peeks of the harbour

The Old School Masters House oozes character and charm. It's spacious yet cosy & radiates old world charm alongside modern conveniences. This comfortable cottage has been revived with a modern kitchen and bathroom while keeping its unique character.

The property works well for up to two families. The garden provides a beautiful setting for summer alfresco dinning or drinks on the deck in the late sun. In winter the log burner adds to the cosy ambiance, ideal for snuggling up with a good book from the extensive personal library collection.

About Kawhia - this sleepy coastal paradise offers a unique, down-to-earth, and laid-back experience. You'll feel like you've stepped back in time and know you're in heartland NZ when you see children riding through the streets bareback on a horse, or diving off the wharf into the inviting waters below.

Kawhia is steeped in ancient history, natural beauty and is the spiritual and ancestral home of the Maori tribe, Tainui.

With so many excellent outdoor activities even the most adventurous won’t get bored.

• Dig a natural hot pool – Te Puia Hot Springs ocean beach

• Swimming in the harbour at high tide

• Walks – Harbour walk, Ocean beach walk,

• Golf course next door
