The space

If it's peace and quiet you are seeking then this is the cottage for you. Cosy and self contained, this is the ideal place to relax after a busy day at one of the magnificent far north beaches or a trip to Cape Reinga.
The covered deck offers shelter from the elements as you sip a glass of wine and your steak sizzles beside you on the gas BBQ.
Don't be put off by winter - it's not usually cold here anyway but we provide loads of firewood for the attractive woodburning freestanding fireplace so you will be toasty warm and cosy while you relax in front of the TV or play a game of scrabble.
It's great fun and very easy to dig up Tuatuas on Ninety Mile Beach. Bring them home and eat, steamed - delicious with fresh bread and butter and a cold beer.
The well equipped kitchen makes meal preparation easy and it's not far to local restaurants for sit down service or takeaways if that's your preference.
The large refrigerator and ample shelving allow guests to shop in advance for self catering.

Free WiFi is available along with TV, DVD and also a landline telephone (on request).

Definitely a quiet and private place! Everything we needed was provided, and Polly, Geoff and their dogs were wonderfully welcoming hosts. I think the proteas were remarkable!

We had a lovely stay, the location is perfect to explore local bays it's only two hour trip to Cape Reinga, a few moments away from 90 mile beach and Henderson Bay which was beautiful. Polly and Jeffrey are amazing hosts, they provided everything we needed.

The serenity of this property can't be overstated. It is absolute heaven to spend time here. A huge covered front porch sitting behind your own private pond, horses roaming the flower orchards, dogs stopping by for a friendly ear scratch, all the spices, coffee and tea you need t…
