Kowhai Glen is nestled into a small hidden rural valley on our 5 acre organic property that is the neighbour to 6 ha of virgin bush and Duck Creek.

Abundant in bird life you will wake to the bird song in the morning and settle into the evening to the same chorus.

The sound of the water as it flows down Duck Creek creates its own rest fullness that after a heavy rain can be heard with ease.

The cute kitchenette that is fully equipped with gas hob offers you to be independent to do your own thing.

  • First impression

    First impression. Wow!! Like other's before me the photo's don't do this place justice. Definite value for money. I will definitely be back. The place is so clean with well appointed modern furnishings to ensure a really comfortable stay with everything that you need. My little dog that I brought loved running around the huge (safe) property and playing with the owner's 2 little well behaved dogs. The cottage is in a rural area, peaceful and serene, but close enough to drive to local eateries

    The cabin has a very rustic, charming exterior in a very secluded setting with lots of trees and native birds. The interior has a vaulted ceiling with beams, beautifully appointed decor and special decorative touches. I loved the pretty white pitcher with freshly cut rhododendron flowers on the night stand. The bathroom is amazing - the shower is enormous and made with a stunningly patterned Morris and James tile design. I definitely recommend this as a great place to unwind.

  • Beautiful little get away

    Beautiful little get away. Photos don't do this place justice! Tranquil setting and cosy cottage. Little touches make staying here extra special like fresh flowers, lovely linen and organic milk. Felt well and truly looked after and would highly recommend this for a couple's retreat!

    Beautiful little cottage, the photos don't do it justice! Very clean and well presented, has everything you need. Setting is private and surrounded by farmland and bush. Lovely touch that the heater was left on for us and we could just drive straight up and settle in. Our little puppy Freddie had a great time sniffing around and walking along the nearby river, great to find such a nice little place that will consider dogs. We loved our one night stay here and will definitely be back :-)
