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.

Beautifully appointed, sunny and light open plan living with French doors opening into a private garden, you are ensured to be at one with nature.

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

    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 :-)

  • Great bit of rustic charm in a lovely rural setting

    Great bit of rustic charm in a lovely rural setting. While rustic on the exterior it was very well appointed and comfortable for my partner and myself along with our miniature Schnauzer Maxi (who had a wonderful time around the property - and playing with Debs dogs). It is perfect for that romantic getaway for 2. It was a pity the walking trail across the river was a little too overgrown to experience, but we did the other local walks, as well as wineries and beaches. Great way to wind down.
