Cute, cozy 2 bedroom cottage nestled in a bush setting. In the evening you can listen the native Kiwi & Morepork living in bush opposite the cottage and wake up to abundant birdsong, in this peaceful rural environment. We have everything you need to make your stay comfortable plus no noise, no traffic, no people, no light pollution, no cell phone coverage, a great get away from urban life, a chance to reconnect with nature and de-stress and recharge and experience farm life, for the curious.

The space
Step back in time to the 70's, this is a homely inviting 70's house, with even the original wall paper and nice home made blankets and throws, all these add to the homely relaxing atmosphere. A Cosy warm cottage, with a sunny small deck to enjoy the peaceful rural environment, close to the White cliffs Walkway and Mt Damper Falls Track. A 5 minute drive to the black sand beaches and Tongaporutu Three Sisters. Kayaks available on request. Glow worms just down from the house.

Hi everyone I'm a mum of 8 kids, I grew up on the Hakari farm and my husband grew up on the Hutiwai farm. We love meeting people and I'm really enjoying hosting, especially now that our children are leaving the nest! My husband and I are down to earth and love the unique environment around us, our family won an environment Award from the Taranaki Region Council for the planting of the Hutiwai stream for the conservation of the Whitebait and we work closely with the Taranaki Kiwi Trust and their breeding program. Family and relationships are important to us. We look forward to meeting you soon!!

During your stay
We live 2.7km from the main road at the Roa Road intersection , the cottage is a further 800 metres along the Hutiwai. The farm is a small dairy farm, you are more than welcome to visit at milking time to experience farm life. There is glow worms situated five minutes walk from the cottage and 5 minutes drive from the beach and walkway to elephant rock. We are happy to show you the glow worms and give directions to elephant rock. We offer as little interaction as you want or as much as you need.
