Fancy a lazy Sunday? You can see the mesmerising water views from the master bed, while your special someone whips up your favorite breakfast in our fully equipped kitchen!
Wonderful water views reaching out before you, from both sides of the cottage, one looking North to the Veronica Channel where the ferry travels from Opua to Okiato and the other from a large covered deck that looks out across the Waikere inlet and lush green hills in the distance providing a picturesque view.
A fabulous getaway - Enjoy, and soak up the ambiance. Be prepared to stay - You definitely won't want to leave!!
