About Gary King
Gary and Lydia have operated a Guest House in Solomon Islands for the last 8 years and have just this year returned to live in New Zealand. They love people and looking after guests enjoying a well-earned holiday or seeking pleasure in their chosen sport or hobby gives a special reward.
Gary King purchased this Cottage in 2019
Why Gary King chose Tirohanga
Although a little colder than Solomons, Gary and Lydia loved the house and the beautiful cottage, the expansive gardens and mature trees and the orchard . The cottage on the property was built and then recently renovated as a permanent home and so has modern, high-quality fittings along with a great "homely" feel. The proximity to the sea was also a big factor, with Lydia having lived on an island all her life. The wonderful friendliness and relaxed manner of the local people makes Opotiki a great place to live or visit.
What makes this Cottage unique
The proximity to the Motu Trails is an obvious unique feature of Renga Renga Retreat. It is an asset to the whole area and a draw-card for hikers and cyclists serous and casual alike. The Bay of Plenty with its expansive beaches, rocky shores lined with Pohutukawa and the backdrop of pristine native forest makes it a special part of the world. These features provide a playground for those who love marine sports and activities or who get their adrenaline rush in the bush.

Great accommodation in quiet lovely spot. Wonderful host.
This delightful cottage is set amongst olive trees and gardens, and is just a short walk from beach and the Dunes section of the Motu Trails. It's spacious, modern, well-equipped and spotlessly clean. It's on the same property as the owners' house, but you can't see or hear them, and it feels very private. Gary and Lydia are lovely people and wonderful hosts, who interact just enough, but don't crowd you. We'll be back!
Thank you for staying with us Heather and Denis. It’s always nice to meet nice people! So pleased you enjoyed your stay. We too enjoyed our brief time with you and we hope that we catch up with you again. You are always welcome here!!
All the best,
Gary and Lydia
