Description

  • Base yourself for a few days at the heart of historic Hokianga
  • Includes continental breakfast for first days. Full breakfast or evening meal by arrangement.
  • Homely and welcoming cottage with modern features

A lovely sunny cottage nestled in an area of native bush and garden with harbour views. It is in a quiet part of the township, walking distance to the hospital and three minutes drive to the car ferry and shopping area. Rawene is an historic town known as the car ferry town where the vehicular ferry departs on a regular basis to transport travelers across to the north side of the harbour. Rawene is one of the oldest settlements in New Zealand. It has a small supermarket, cafe, garage and petrol station, takeaways, art and craft galleries, chemist and hotel. Your hosts are locals and can help make your stay a memorable one and can share their knowledge about Hokianga's interesting bi-cultural history. Meals and tours by arrangement. BBQ available (one off cleaning and gas charge)

Rawene is 15 minutes from Opononi made famous by Opo the dolphin in the 1950s, 45 minutes from Tane Mahuta, the majestic kauri tree in Waipoua forest, and a 15 minute ferry crossing away from the historic township of Kohukohu. It is roughly an hour across to the Bay of Islands and just over two hours drive to Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga).

Special conditions: Happy to discuss discount rates for longer stays during the period from June to August.

  • Immaculately clean and tidy

    Immaculately clean and tidy. Beautifully stocked with everything you need. The hosts left a range of goodies - including the best muesli I've ever had and delicious yoghurt for breakfast. Beds are wonderful, the garden is well-kept, there's a great view of the harbour from the deck, just all-round great. Lovely peaceful setting. Highly recommended - not just 5 stars, but 10 stars!
