The ultimate romantic retreat! Secluded Magic Cottage, with its stunning views of the water, is perched on the backs of the peaceful Takou River, hidden beneath ancient Pohutukawa trees. The romantic cabin has a relaxing outdoor claw foot bath overlooking the water; wrap around decks, 5 acres of sub-tropical gardens to explore; a private jetty & boathouse, deserted sandy beaches a short paddle downstream; and 150 acres of organic farmland, native bush and river to fish, swim, kayak and explore.

Beautiful cottage located right on the river bank. Everything you'd need for a self-catered get away. Anna & Ian were close enough if we needed. Loved the fact it was surrounded by an organic farm. Kayak down the river is a must. We will definitely be back in the future.

Beautiful place and enchanting location. The cottage is right off the river and the outdoor tub is amazing under the stars. The hosts are extremely kind and the cottage truly offers a chance to disconnect in all the right ways! Highly recommend.
