A lovely sunny cottage nestled in an area of native bush 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 and it has an interesting bi-cultural history. 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. 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).

    We had a nice stay with two children (2y, 11months). Very nice view over the bay. Thanks for the fresh things in the fridge and the fresh fruit and flowers. We would like to come back and have a longer stay at that great place.

    Great place, very clean and tidy, with a well stocked kitchen (handy as the shops close early). The location with a view of the harbour and beautiful gardens made it a really great place to stay. Very highly recommended.
