Description

  • Idylic rural, Northland countryside.
  • Central location for Bay of Islands, Kerikeri, Paihia, Waitangi, easy access to East and West coasts
  • Sweet old, traditional bach.

The Acorn is a lovely, old, wooden, 2 bedroom cottage, fully furnished in a country style, with an enclosed garden, surrounded by gum trees and poplars. Very private.

We're just outside the small rural village of Ohaeawai, (with a great butcher and a traditional NZ dairy) 15 minutes from Kerikeri and about 20 minutes from Paihia, the Bay of Islands and Waitangi (by car). A great central base for all that this area is famous for.

We are on the Twin Coast Cycle Trail and are perfectly positioned for the Okaihau/Kaikohe section.

The property was featured in Life and Leisure magazine in 2010.

The Cottage:

The living room is very comfortable with a TV, DVD player and loads of DVD's. There is also a wood burner to make the winter nights warm and cozy. Firewood is provided by us.

You can park outside The Acorn. Our own house is just a walk away from the cottage, however the cottage is very private, as the fig tree and some conifers screen the houses from each other.

Our property is a very small working farm, so come and have a chat with us about feeding some chickens! All our cows are very friendly they don't mind if you want to have a walk in the paddock. We also have a nice stream running through our picnic. In summer the perfect place to have a picnic.

Price is for up to a maximum of 4 adult people.

    The rural setting was so peaceful and secluded, and we loved saying hello to the cows, chickens and ducks everyday. I even got to feed the cows! The cottage itself was very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. I would highly recommend this bach as a relaxing retreat from which to explore Northland.
