Cottage | Levin | #34427
Shirley's Retreat is a cosy 4-year old fully equipped cottage located next to the owners' 115-year old original Ohau homestead.
A heat pump makes this modern cottage the perfect winter getaway, you are warm and ready to relax. The front deck is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy peace and quiet with a glass of wine while watching the sunset behind the pine trees.
DVDs, books, tea, coffee and sugar are all provided for our guests. We love to share our cottage with other like-minded people who feel privileged to enjoy our beautiful country.
Ideal for a private weekend getaway, romantic retreat, or a stop-over destination prior to catching the ferry to the South Island.
Also ideal for those wanting to bike and swim. Waikawa Beach is only a 5 minute drive away, great for a sunset walk. For any folk who are super fit and enjoy hiking, it is possible to climb Mt Hector (1500 m). It should take around 5-6 hours of strenuous walking to reach the summit and the descent can take another 4 hours or so. It is a 35-min drive to the start of the walk.
The Levin Aquatic Centre is situated in the beautiful Gladys Taylor Park surrounded by palm trees, just opposite Levin’s skate park. The fantastic facility includes three indoor pools. The Levin Adventure Park is 5 minutes drive.

Cute and cosy modern cottage in a quiet rural location just a few mins from Levin. Not totally secluded - faces to neighbours' back windows across a big lawn - but very peaceful, with trees and birdsong, and wild rabbits on the lawn in the evening. Very clean and tidy. Modern build with insulation and double glazing. Friendly but not intrusive hosts. Kitchen equipment, furniture & bedding not luxurious, but functional. Overall, very pleasant and great value for money. We hope to come again.
