Cottage | Karangahake | #36714
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.
The cottage itself is "Owner Built" and is fully code compliant ; by the re-utilization of previously used hardware and materials the result is a cosy little dwelling oozing with character that is user friendly charming and original.
Staying at Bentwood 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, for the beach lovers Waihi surf beach is about a 15 minute drive away. 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.

I would recommend this place to all travelers. It was a little short on kitchen items, but I believe Mike is working on getting it better stocked, as he is just starting to rent it out! We made wonderfully fresh lemonade with lemons right off of the tree......that is exciting for us, as we are from a colder climate. The bed was amazingly comfortable....best sleep of our whole trip. The birds were quite talented in their morning entertainment!
Beautiful rustic setting for a relaxing back to nature break. Cosy and comfortable property, very kid-and-pet friendly. Close to the amazing gorge walks but also great base for exploring Waihi and Coromandel. We really didn't want to go home and are hope to come back again in the future.
