Description

  • Nestled amongst rolling pastures, looking out to native bush
  • Quiet, private and secluded.
  • Cosy and comfortable but with plenty of room

Come and enjoy your very own rural retreat, for you and your loved ones.

There are lots of great walks through our native bush which leads you into the Waipu pine forest. If you are bringing your canine friends with you, there is also an all year dog access beach (Uretiti) close by.

The cottage is only 5 Km to the charming, world famous Waipu village; which hosts cafes and gift shops, supermarket, post shop. Surfers and wave jumpers can enjoy Waipu Cove beach, just minutes drive away. This Lifeguard patroll makes it safe swimming for everyone. There is also some great fishing to be had on this coast.

Our cosy cottage is only 10 years old and is located on our 15 acre lifestyle block.It has a fully fenced large garden with plenty of parking and is separated from the main house by lawn areas, large trees and shrubs.

Our little Dexter cows are in the surrounding paddocks and our chickens, which live in a large pen, well away from the cottage (no roosters!) enjoy having visitors.

They also provide us with fresh eggs which are (nearly) always available for our guests to (yummy!) There are fantastic views from all round the property as well as breathtaking sunsets from the deck and master bedroom. It is romantic and private, if you are lucky you will hear the Kiwi’s calling from the forrest during the night and you will wake up to our resident Tui’s and all their friends.

Mags is also a Celebrant and available for Weddings and Civil Unions here or many other venues.

Our location provides a very convenient base to attend rugby/cricket/concerts at the Northland Events Centre (Whangarei) which is ¾ hour away by car.

Waipu is a good half way point to break your trip between Auckland and the Bay of Islands.



Come and enjoy ‘The Good Life’ in the winterless North. We are very dog friendly and have secure boarding kennelling facilities at the main house should you require them (pays to book in advance, especially during school holidays).

Special conditions: Check in time: after 14:00 pm Check out time: by 11:00 am Early arrival and late checkouts can be arranged if available. Smoking outside only. Dogs to be kept off furniture (best to bring your own dog bedding) please pick up after your dog (we will dispose). No dogs to be left unattended (we can help if you need a humans only trip).

  • I wanted a quiet space to do some writing and be able...

    I wanted a quiet space to do some writing and be able to have my dogs with me. Glenmohr was perfect for this. Beautiful dog-friendly beaches nearby for long walks, several good cafes, and very friendly locals.

  • Perfect hideaway & very appropriate for our use

    Perfect hideaway & very appropriate for our use. Lovely & quiet. Little things like overgrown gardens & lawns around the cottage (the ground was dry) & a partially full rubbish bin took a bit of the shine off the experience (Also, the excruciatingly uncomfortable couch....). However I would still recommend as a great place to wind back & chill out.

    Owner/manager responds:

    Sorry Sandie you got caught with that, the lawn mower was repaired yesterday so I can get back to cutting the grass now its stopped raining again. It is some times hard with back to back bookings to get everything right but that is no excuse not too. Now that it is spring we plan to get back to restoring the gardens which have been knocked around by the storms.
