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).

    Beautiful cottage, beautiful grounds, beautifully decorated by someone with the eye of an artist. We were able to gather fresh herbs in the garden, and the hosts left some fresh provisions in the fridge for us (milk, butter, yogurt). The view from the back bedroom and deck was fabulous.

  • Wonderful spot for a quiet relaxing weekend

    Wonderful spot for a quiet relaxing weekend. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we were pleasantly surprised to find food items available although we had brought our own. Thanks for a lovely stay.

  • Rawene Cottage is a jewel

    Rawene Cottage is a jewel. We moved in and immediately felt at home in this well appointed, neat and clean cottage located in lovely gardens with a pleasant view. Because we are in our sixties, it felt like an ideal retirement situation, so we were a bit sorry to leave.
