Description

  • A modern cottage-style retreat in gorgeous, peaceful gardens
  • Great base for visiting the Bay of Islands and the rest of the Far North
  • Rural lakeside setting with your own rowing boat

Peace and Tranquillity is the perfect name for this calm retreat. Go out and about, exploring the Bay of Islands, and come back to a little piece of heaven every afternoon. Or spend whole days here, relaxing in the park-like gardens, rowing on the lake, or visiting the farm animals.

The holiday home is newly-built with modern comforts, but full of character and charm. All year round comfort is assured with log fire, heat pump and air-conditioning. There is plenty of space to park a boat and trailer, and easy access to public launching ramps around the bay.

We are centrally located to enjoy the wider Bay of Islands. Situated ten minutes north of Kerikeri, we are 35 minutes from Paihia and Russell to the South, and 35 minutes from Coopers Beach and Mangonui in the North. And there are many more interesting places to visit in between.

Following our move to New Zealand from the UK, we built a house for family and friends to visit so they could enjoy their own space & privacy. The initial rush is over, and we thought it would fun to welcome new visitors who could relax in our special holiday home.

EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED for your stay to ensure you have nothing to worry about. Free Wireless Broadband, A full SKY package, bedding, towels, cleaning and rubbish removal.

We welcome well- behaved dogs by prior arrangement at a charge of $15 per night.

We love having dogs come to stay, one or two, the more the merrier. Our own Boarder Collie Tui, is very people and dog friendly. The 12 acres of grounds are all fenced with an electric gate. There is a nice new conservatory so your dog can sleep inside safe and secure. We are happy to baby sit (only dogs, not children!) if you would like to go out for the day sailing or fishing in the bay of Islands, and can't take the dog.

    Steven and Dot are lovely people, wonderful hosts and the place is just stunning. It was the perfect end to our five week trip. We highly recommend staying there and would be back in a heartbeat ourselves.

  • A beautifully appointed cottage which suited our family of 4 perfectly

    A beautifully appointed cottage which suited our family of 4 perfectly. Picturesque outlook and plenty of privacy, it was the best way to have a break from the rat race - truly tranquil and peaceful. An excellent base to make day trips from, and thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed. Thank you Dot and Steve for a wonderful holiday!

    A little touch of heaven is how we would describe this beautiful place. Steve and Dot were so kind and welcoming. Tui the dog became our best friend and loved walking round the property with us. We had four wonderful days at this delightful property and will definitely go back. Sincere thanks to Steve and Dot for being such lovely hosts and making our break so special.

  • The cottage was modern and comfortable

    The cottage was modern and comfortable. It was well equipped with special touches which we appreciated. The rural location was idyllic and we loved the bird life. The location was ideal for our dog. Despite the rain, there was plenty to do and we were not too far from the township.
