A STORY BOOK COTTAGE - This place wraps you up in the winter or lets you bask in the ambiance of the bush and ocean on the large deck in summer. It has SEA views from every room and is as sunny and light as you can get.

A COUNTRY KITCHEN that only makes delicious food. From the stove top coffee making gear to the awesome woodrange this kitchen has everything you will need. An LPG gas stove and oven if you don't want the wood range going. You will enjoy cooking and looking out at the small stream and bush, or turn and gaze out to sea while you stir your coffee.

A COSY LOUNGE for you curl up with one of the 'books galore' or watch Sky TV or a DVD

JUST 40 METRES OR SO down to the shore where you can fish, boat, swim, snorkel or just laze. Swimming with a mask and snorkel opens up a world of wonder as the fish life is superb - right there in front of your holiday home. Or take the dinghy (provided) and row out to the little island off the coast to explore. Some people bring a small outboard or you may hire one, so you can motor around to Port Fitzroy for the morning paper or the takeaways.

TRAMPS GALORE abound on Barrier - if you want to get out and about you can go to the the famous Kauri dams or walk into the thermal stream at Whangaparara, or just go for an hours tramp from your holiday home to an idyllic isolated south pacific beach.

LEAVE YOUR HIGH HEELS AT HOME - Unfortunately wheel chairs won't work either as our home is hidden and private - a water access only property - come in by dinghy (provided) or walk the shore (20 min) or water shuttle. See special conditions for pricing.

  • Our family had the most wonderful time at kotuku cove

    Our family had the most wonderful time at kotuku cove. A beautifully presented home filled with memories made us feel so comfortable and we even enjoyed some of the treasured recipes. The picturesque views are even better in real life. An adventure we will never forget and hope to be back again for more relaxing, swimming, snorkeling, walks and spending time with each other. Thank you Gary and Sandy we loved our stay.

  • If you are in good shape and like to be off the...

    If you are in good shape and like to be off the grid for a while this is it. Getting there is an adventure itself. It's an amazing location. Keep in mind that it's a bit isolated and only reachable by boat or by walking over a rocky beach for a substantial distance. The reward is surely worth the effort.

    If you love adventure away from it all you must go to this place. Picturesque and perfect for fishing, snorkelling exploring or just chilling out in the orchard reading a book. Thanks Gary!!

  • Spectacular views, private bush setting, very comfortable home

    Spectacular views, private bush setting, very comfortable home. Getting there (dinghy provided) is an adventure but you won't want to leave once settled in. Private fishing and swimming on your door step. Highly recommended.

  • This is a great place to get away from it all

    This is a great place to get away from it all. Access is by boat or on foot round the stoney beach (but not at high tide) so it's all a bit of an adventure. We loved it. The house is very well equipped with stunning views out over the bay. We will do our best to return.
