Cottage | Pataua North | #37594
Mara cottage is part of the 256ha Tahi ecological sanctuary, including restored wetlands, lakes and forests. You will have the choice of walking one of the many tracks, swimming from the beautiful white sand surf beach or fishing and kayaking in the estuary. Surfing lessons and standup paddle boards are available locally, along with horse trekking through the property or along the beach.
Encompassing a rich variety of habitats, Tahi is a haven for walkers, birdwatchers and the conservation minded. Dune vegetation on the surf beach gives way to diverse broadleaf forest on the hills further inland, lakes provide habitat for mullet and rare long-finned eels while mangroves and saltmarshes are home to kingfishers, rare fernbirds and banded rails. Tahi is also proud to host a number of endangered bird species including Kiwi, Brown Teal, Bittern and Dotterell.
The on-site Tahi Cafe offers a blackboard menu of delicious breakfast and lunch dishes, great coffee and Kohu Road icecreams. Open Christmas to Waitangi Weekend - 7 days a week.
Special conditions: No pets please, Tahi is a bird and kiwi sanctuary.

The premises was terrific. 5 stars. Clean, spacious and very modern. All the extra bits and pieces were provided (including beach toys for my four year old). The wifi was a bit iffy at times, but we weren't there to surf the net all day and night. Can't recommend this accommodation highly enough.
Loved the bach! Enjoyed our stay there. Enjoyed the beach access and the tracks. The views were great, and loved spotting different native birds on the walks within the sanctuary. Horse riding is a must, unforgettable experience as the horses and the people were all so lovely and experienced.
