VOTED ONE OF THE TOP 10 LUXURY LODGES in NZ by XtraMSN, Magic Cottage is a beautiful and secluded riverside retreat offering romantic self-catering accommodation amid 5 acres of sub-tropical gardens. Perched on the banks of the Takou River, just upstream from Takou Bay, Magic Cottage is the ultimate romantic retreat. “…a place of absolute, blessed escape…” NZ Herald on Sunday.

PERFECT HONEYMOON DESTINATION! Hidden from view this studio cottage features a romantic alfresco claw foot bath on the deck overlooking the river; a super king bed; feather duvet and pillows, crisp cotton linen and throws, towels and waffle bath robes; complimentary toiletries from Ecostore, fresh flowers, magazines and books. Enjoy romantic self-catering accommodation that is eco-friendly yet still indulgent.

ABSOLUTE WATERFRONT! Peace, seclusion and tranquility abound - a beautiful private river frontage; 150 acres of organic farmland with marked walks along the river bank, through native bush and pastures to secluded swimming and picnic spots; magical glow worms; 5 acres of beautiful sub-tropical gardens to wander and explore; our private jetty and boat house with free kayaks, canoes and fishing rods; and last but not least, access to the beautiful deserted sandy beaches at Takou Bay a short paddle or drive downstream.

MASSAGES, HOT TUB, GOURMET MEALSOnce you've finished exploring, relax and unwind in the privacy of your cottage with a pampering massage or spa treatment. To complete your stay, gourmet meals are also available by prior arrangement.

IDEAL LOCATION! Magic Cottage is centrally located to explore the wider Bay of Islands and Far North, yet hidden away from the hustle and bustle amid 150 acres of organic pasture, native bush and river frontage. Enjoy the flourishing birdlife; wander enchanted gardens and riverside walks; paddle to Takou Bay; relax, refresh and romance in the claw foot bath – or bask in the bliss of doing absolutely nothing.
