  • A quiet, secluded hideaway among nikau palms

    A quiet, secluded hideaway among nikau palms. A short walk to the beautiful beach of Onetangi. Nikau Cottage has such a relaxed atmosphere and has everything you would need - a great coffee machine too! This is a genuine, comfortable Kiwi holiday spot.

    We loved Nikau Cottage due to it's serenity and unique bush setting, it met our needs and accessibility via car and with the use of the bikes at the house was perfect.

    Nikau Cottage is perfectly placed for access to Onetangi Bay and the best pub on the island - Charley Farley's. Both can be reached with a pleasant short walk, or a down-hill run on the cottage mountain bikes. Nikau is quiet and secluded (so much so, you'll often be searching for it in the bush), and demands relaxation. Leave the gadgets at home, bring a good book, a bottle or two and good company.
