Description

  • Peace and quiet, restfull surroundings, sleep to the sound of the ocean, wake to the sound of birds.
  • Guests love our character cottage.
  • A good fishing spot both off the beach and at the river mouth.

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 restfull 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 /ensuite/ bedroom in the ajacent 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.

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

Special conditions: Pets to be compatable with resident dog &cattle and be kept outside the cottage at all times please. Smoking outside only , please no butts in gardens or planter pots.

  • Loved, loved, loved this place

    Loved, loved, loved this place. One of the most relaxing spots ever. The garden is like a calm oasis but with the rough and tumble beach below for balance. Really enjoyed all the outdoor spaces/ niches to sit, read, talk and eat! Perfect for real family time. Hope to return one day.

    Comfortable well equipped cottage, walking distance to a pebbly beach with beautiful driftwood and views of White Island. Good fishing from the beach, bush walks nearby. 20 mins to provisions so come with food. Easy to relax with sounds of the sea. Beautiful garden attracts native birds and monarch butterflies. We had 2 teenagers who went pale at the thought of no wifi or phone signal but we had fun cooking fresh fish on the BBQ, played board games listened to music and reconnected as a family

    Felt a bit far (but of course we were from Auckland); but it was our best choice for bringing two dogs. Chris's own dog Inca was really friendly to us and to our dogs. Even if you don't have dogs of your own this place was really good.

    It is a beautiful cottage with two bed areas, each has two beds. We loved the larger one with fireplace. But, it is the location that got us. Surroundings were amazing, our first impression was feeling of the untouched rugged New Zealand. Our kids enjoyed playing around the cottage and down on the drift wood & gravel beach. We caught two sharks on our short fishing from the beach. I would definitely want to come again, hopefully in winter next time.
