About Liz & Mike Carter
After childhood experience in the country and being disheartened by the noise and small city plots we found our slice of heaven in the country and became proud lifestyle block owners. Mike is an architect who previously had his architectural practice within the cottage before converting it into accommodation and now works as an architect project manager in town. Liz is full time home manager and organic gardener. We are involved in our community being on the local school board of trustees and chair of the Whakamarama Community Centre/Hall committee.
Liz & Mike Carter purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Liz & Mike Carter chose Whakamarama
We were keen to give our family a taste of the kind of childhood experiences we had growing up in rural environments - space to play, ride bikes, and peace and quiet.
What makes this Cottage unique
We choose this property because it had a bit of land which meant we could be less dependent upon supermarkets and more self sufficient as we could grow some of our own food. We were also attracted by the beautiful bush outlook.

A peaceful getaway for couples
A perfect spot for a getaway, very peaceful and private. Clean, warm and cosy. It was nice to visit the stream at the bottom of the property, and the fresh flowers on arrival were a nice welcoming touch. Perfect location. Thank you to Liz & Mike for sharing your ‘Slice of Heaven’.
We enjoy welcoming guests to stay in our cottage, this place is too lovely not to share it with others.
Lovely little cottage!
The cottage was in a lovely location, close enough to town and bay of plenty, but far enough to relax away from traffic and city life.
It was clean and perfect size for the two of us.
I was glad to have use of a full kitchen and washer as well.
It was nice to meet Liz, she was very friendly and helpful.
We enjoyed having our international honeymooners stay - it was a pleasure to share our Slice of Heaven with them.
Stunning little house and surrounding. Even played with some eels!
Hi Rachael - so happy you enjoyed your stay, you were great guests and are more than welcome back any time you'd like.
