An unexpected find in Katikati

Lifestyle Wed Dec 5 2018 by Kate Milliken

Known as the gateway to the Bay of Plenty, Katikati is a great vantage point to enjoy surrounding beaches and coastal serenity.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a very unique Katikati property a few weeks ago. Nestled into the countryside surrounded by livestock, The Tuscan Farmhouse is located down the end of a winding gravel driveway beside a picturesque stream. It feels completely isolated, even though the township of Katikati is only ten short minutes away. When you arrive, it’s a luxurious stone home with wooden accents, it is, exactly as the name suggests; a Tuscan styled farmhouse.

The hospitality element of this home is a lesson in subtle opulence, think; fluffy robes draped in each room and a chilled bottle of wine and chocolates upon arrival. It’s calculatingly unfussy, and the warm interior style of this house makes you feel right at home.

Beauty lies in the detailing, and this certainly rings t...

    This property is a very special property. Unique design. Luxury and exceptionally private if you are looking for a retreat away from it all. Hope to return again as we just loved our stay at this property.

    Lovely setting, real close to KatiKati which has an amazing wine shop and informative owner. House and set up makes you feel like you are in a french provence. Nice and relaxing. Ideal for a group of adults and/or family. Easy access from Auckland i.e. 2 hr drive. We enjoyed out stay and would recommend it!

    The house is furnished luxuriously and beautifully looking out onto lovely gardens/river. The addition of the open fire and outdoor spa were a real treat for a winter stay! Proximity to Katikati was less than a 10min drive which was very handy.

    Lovely house, especially good in the wet weather - warm, lots of space and lots of entertainment! Living on tank water can be interesting if house is close to/at guest capacity, but not a big issue. We had a great long weekend there, would definitely recommend.
