Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 3)

The heat pump and the double glazed windows makes this modern cottage the perfect getaway for all seasons, you are ready to relax. The front porch is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy peace and quiet with a glass of wine while or a cup of tea watching the sunset behind the pine trees.

DVDs, books, tea, coffee and sugar are all provided. We love to share our cottage with other like-minded people who feel privileged to enjoy our beautiful country.

Ideal for a private weekend getaway or a stop-over destination prior to catching the ferry to the South Island.

Also ideal for those wanting to bike and swim. Waikawa Beach is only a 5 minute drive away, great for a sunset walk. For any folk who are super fit and enjoy hiking, it is possible to climb Mt Hector (1500 m). It should take around 5-6 hours of strenuous walking to reach the summit and the descent can take another 4 hours or so. It is a 35-min drive to the start of the walk.

Levin Aquatic Centre surrounded by palm trees has three indoor pools. The Levin Adventure Park is less than 5 minutes drive.

The golf course is only a short drive away.

Nearby cafes, restaurants, cinema and a good range of take-away outlets in Levin where to the west of the main town lies lake Horowhenua. A large lake, covering some 3.9 sq. km.

Cute and cosy modern cottage in a quiet rural location just a few mins from Levin.

  • 4 of 5

Cute and cosy modern cottage in a quiet rural location just a few mins from Levin. Not totally secluded - faces to neighbours' back windows across a big lawn - but very peaceful, with trees and birdsong, and wild rabbits on the lawn in the evening. Very clean and tidy. Modern build with insulation and double glazing. Friendly but not intrusive hosts. Kitchen equipment, furniture & bedding not luxurious, but functional. Overall, very pleasant and great value for money. We hope to come again.

Great spot near to Levin but feels out of the way. The property is well maintained and very clean. Perfect for a few nights stay whether passing though or you have an event on in the region. Thanks.
