Cottage | Rawene | #37235
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).

The cottage is lovely and the hosts very hospitable. They really understand the meaning of customer service. It is a perfect spot to relax and has everything you need including a generous supply of food in the pantry. Would highly recommend.
Hosts Claire & Paul were a lovely couple. Friendly & helpful. The house was cosy, comfortable & very clean. Loved the homely touches and the house was equipped with all you would need (including food items which was great) there was also lots of info on the area. Would definitely recommend to other travellers.
