Bentwood Cottage is a unique and welcoming dwelling located on a beautiful section in the settlement of Waikino , within a stones throw of State Highway 2 and close to the very popular Karangahake Gorge section of the Hauraki Rail Trail. Here you will notice the abundant birdlife, the awesome starry night skies and you can chill out and de-stress in a relaxing peaceful environment . Bring your pets and eat the herbs and vegetables from the organic garden. You could get creative, play the guitar, write your book , try some artwork or simply read a book in a very quiet corner of the world. If you feel active you can ride the rail trail, take a hike or explore the historic reserves in the area. At night you might take a short walk with a torch and check out the glow worms and perhaps stroll down the hill for a pint at the local.. The cottage comes with all you need to be comfortable and to feel at home during your stay. Locally you will find there are plenty of choices for eating out with quality cafes and restaurants just a short drive away.

Special conditions: Maximum stay of 7 days; a longer term may be negotiated, NB. Check in time is very flexible and as host I would like to meet and greet guests in person. Due to work commitments arrival times for guests need to be arranged in advance, please email or call. You are welcome to bring your pets. Please clean up after them and be aware that the property also has a resident old Dog called Scruffy who is loveable and welcoming.

    While this property might not have all the mod cons of the city, the peace, natural environmental beauty and wonderful energy is very special. Highly recommended as an inexpensive and very lovely 'get away'.

    Beautiful spot, loved sitting in the conservatory watching the sun set over the hills. So private and peaceful, we stole some lemons on our way out!!! This was the best place to stay for the Waihi Challenge Xterra trail race... only 10m from the race, amazing to be on location! We also did the Karangahake historic mine trail, and checked out the local art. Thanks Mike!!! Hope to see you soon
