Rustic Kiwi Paradise set in Native Bush
A beautiful warm relaxing space, surrounded by native bush, birds and scenery. This wee bach is packed with a great range of historical and interesting books detailing the nature you can find in the area. Have a read then go for one of the many walks which are in the vicinity. Explore the lake, the beach and find the caves! The outdoor shower is fantastic, the kitchen is fully stocked and the door between the kitchen and lounge is incredibly well hinged! This place is fantastic if you want to step outside of time and just relax.
Great spot to enjoy nature
Great little getaway in the bush stargazing and listening to nature
Lovely little cottage close to Auckland but far away from WiFi or cell phone coverage. We had a nice quiet time. Margaret presents the place well. It is great for a short stay and I would recommend it. But I also acknowledge that after 3 nights I tired of the steps to the long drop outdoor toilet in the middle of the night. Call me a softie but I was ready to get back to modern amenities. On the other hand I will acknowledge great pressure from outdoor shower.
Best Retreat Ever
Margaret is so lovely and the space is incredible. Have returned and hope to more in the future.
Loved staying in this fairy tale cottage and plan on staying again! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because I did not like using the outdoor toilet, maybe if the spiderwebs were all cleared away it wouldn't of seemed so scary? But it is most likely just a personal thing, other people may not mind it at all :)
Eco friendly Te Aute Ridge cottage
I found this cottage to be a much needed respite from the busy world . It was blissfully peaceful and private after spending most of my holiday with family. It is a very unique and special place to rest and recuperate. Thank you to Margaret for being such an excellent host. I highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone needing to escape the stress of modern life. The bed was the most comfortable one I slept in on my entire holiday - and the little touches such as the interesting video selection , the continental breakfast and a well equipped kitchen was a treat. We will be back .
