The 'Nikau Nest' is a beautiful, architecturally designed, stand-alone cottage on our 6 hectare lifestyle block on the Kaipara Harbour, 10 minutes west of Kaiwaka (The Little Town of Lights). Surrounded by bush and gardens and with views out to the Takahoa inlet and the rural countryside it is the perfect place to relax and unwind or use as a base to explore surrounding areas of Northland.

It is many things:

A private secluded ‘getaway’ spot only 90 minutes north of Auckland. Ideal spot to unwind or even for a romantic getaway.

A base to explore this beautiful part of Northland - visit the east coast beaches and Mangawhai or west, to experience the culture and history of the Kaipara district including Matakohe Kauri museum, West Coast beaches and the Kauri forests

A place to soak up the atmosphere of the Kaipara harbour and maybe catch some fish. Bring your boat or kayaks and launch at the all tide boat ramp 5 minutes away

A stopping off point for your journey north or south.

Cool in the summer and wonderfully warm in winter with the wood burner it is equipped with everything you need to allow you to be self-sufficient during your stay, including: Well equipped separate kitchen - gas hob, fridge, dishwasher, microwave/grill, Nespresso machine.

Two decks - Your own BBQ, table and chairs and outdoor seating

TV (Freeview), WiFi, Stereo.

Separate bathroom with shower or enjoy a soak in the free standing bath which has great views over the countryside.

Use of our swimming pool to cool off.

Outdoor areas to enjoy in the evenings (sit around the fire pit / cook over the open fire - fire bans and winds allowing).

A breakfast tray will be provided to have at your leisure. As an example: homemade granola, yoghurt, milk, bread, fruit, homemade jam, honey (from our property in season), eggs (from our chickens), and of course tea, coffee and butter.
