The lower level has a separate kitchenette with microwave oven, mini-fridge and small stove-top. Broadband internet access via Wifi is available.

Terracotta Gardens is on the hillside above the township with a view west across the Bay towards Waitangi and north across a bushclad valley where morepork and kiwi call at night and weka and tui during the day. A path descends the slope through beautiful gardens to Long Beach road where it is a five-minute walk either into the main township, ferry whart and foreshore or over the saddle to the excellent swimming beach and spectacular view of the Bay and outer islands at Long Beach.

  • A lovely house in a lovely part of the world

    A lovely house in a lovely part of the world. Every comfort is catered for and the gardens are superb. For us, it was just a real shame that the weather wasn't great!

    This is a special property which is probably better than most peoples own home, it has everything and more great views and great garden and the people are very nice and easy to deal with, Russell is a pearl in the pacific. Try Sally's restaurant, and the swim with the dolphins are a must. Thanks Alan and Patricia. Les and Joan and friends
