Oariki Coastal Cottage is on our 34 acre coastal property facing the Pacific Ocean and Whakari (White Island). The beach is down a short bush track or our own access road. There is swimming in the ocean or in lagoons at the Motu River mouth and fishing off our beach or, in season, after Kahawai at the river mouth. Walks can take you along the driftwood strewn beach east to the river mouth or west to Hawai . Our beach has pebbles but at mid to low tide there is a good width of exposed sand.

The cottage has a restful decor with a fireplace for Winter; patios with outdoor furniture and a barbeque for our warm summer evenings.

The kitchen is well equipped for self catering but when you need spoiling you can arrange to come over to our farmhouse next door for some home cooking at a moderate price.

If your group is more than seven (beds in the cottage), or if you would like more space, we have a king bed /en suite/ bedroom in the adjacent main house. This room has its own access and also use of our family room that has comfortable furniture and a midsize snooker table. The family room also has a sleeping loft . If this extra space option interests you please contact us and we can discuss your needs and provide a quote.

We will give you directions to find this secluded location.

The photos show both wings of the cottage with the upper bedroom and deck above the kitchen and dining area.

We do not have a cleaning charge so ask that the cottage is left as you find it on arrival.

We supply all linen of a good quality. Bed linen , tea towels, bathroom towels,flannels and bathmat.

Sleep to the sound of the ocean, wake to the sound of birds ...

  • Superb location, cute character cottage with all amenities at finger tips

    Superb location, cute character cottage with all amenities at finger tips. Great fishing off the beach, and having no internet and TV is wonderful! Perfect location to stay with family and kids. Beautiful grounds and surrounds to explore - and a wonderful host to make the stay that so much more pleasant. We hope to return again one day, thank you for sharing your home and extending your wonderful hospitality Chris.

  • Stayed last weekend

    Stayed last weekend. Honestly unbelievable ! Just what we wanted and more. Did not see a person for 2 days on the beach which I would of fished more if it was not so hot. The Bush and wildlife all around you. No TV or Internet is honestly the best part. It makes you just get out and enjoy everything nature still has to offer. The Cottage is so cute and has so many areas that even if you want time alone you could sit on the Balcony watching rabbits playing whilst you enjoy a wine or two. SUPERB X
