Terry Peterson purchased this Cabin in 2012
Why Terry Peterson chose Whangaroa
Married at 35 to an English person, 2 kids later and Cold War heating up, we repaired to NZ home to look for land to buy for security for family, Saw this piece of land of 37acres=15ha and bought it overnight; best thing I ever did, now with no wife but with a very fulfilling property and environment.
What makes this Cabin unique
Set in regenerating native bush, native birds, and stunning sea views. The perfect getaway! This place/space is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, truly unique!
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Great weekend retreat
Loved the solitude, use of kayaks and the outdoor bath. Terry was a charismatic host and very accommodating. Nice to be able to bring our dog on holiday too.
Secluded spot amongst native bush with a great view. The cabin had everything we needed.
It was the perfect spot for us as we wanted a weekend away relaxing. Terry was very helpful with information on arrival but then left us to enjoy the weekend by ourselves. Would definitely recommend this little piece of paradise
Relaxing and beautiful
We had a wonderful relaxing time and would book again without question.
The views are stunning and it is so peaceful here - even had a visit from a Morepork too!!
Its also a bit of a suntrap too and enjoyed using the outdoor bath.
Thanks Terry :)
Very nice host - thank you, Terry. We have learned a lot about the history of the area. We enjoyed kayaking and exploring the surroundings. Read Terry's write up on what to do in the area!
The perfect getaway
We absolutely loved La Grange Eco-Cabin! We didn't want to leave. From the stunning views to the outdoor bath and very secluded. I think it had all you need and the potted herbs were a lovely touch.
Thank you Terry you're awesome! We look forward to coming back.
So much peacefull!!
Had the perfect break away, just wish we'd had another few days. Hardest thing to do was figure out how to do nothing! Everything we wanted from our stay. Peace, tranquility, beauty. Bath was such a treat. Terry is an awesome host. There's nothing I would want to change and I cant wait to come back.

Maybe 200 folk live in Whangaroa but you are furthest away from them; but please do meet up with them in the local pub and local sport fishing club, both with cafes.
