Situated on a coastal ridge with sweeping views, Kākā Ridge Retreat is a two-room cottage offering you privacy and tranquility. Boasting a bedroom, a living room, two bathrooms, decks on three sides, an outdoor bath and a pretty cottage garden, it is designed to provide you with the ultimate getaway.
The luxurious bedroom is French country chic with a super comfortable king bed to ensure you’re well rested. From your bedroom you have a stunning view of the sea – a 180 degree vista including near and far islands of the Hauraki Gulf.
Your living room looks across a gently sloping lawn directly at a huge stand of covenanted native bush. This is a bird lover’s paradise: tūī, kererū, kākā, ruru, pīwakawaka, kōtare, kākāriki and korimako visit our gardens. If you’re lucky at dusk you will see a flock of kākā flying overhead or ruru in the trees catching their puriri moth dinner. You will even have the best “loo with a view” in New Zealand. The second bathroom feels as though it’s totally immersed in the bush canopy.
The retro-styled living room is relaxingly comfortable and includes a fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave and small dining table; everything you need for the continental breakfast we prepare. For dinner, we highly recommend that you try out one of the many wonderful local vineyards or amazing restaurants. There is also a food delivery service available and we provide a disposable BBQ for outside use if you want to eat in.
Access to Kākā Ridge Retreat is via our driveway and shared parking area with a short walk past the house. The cottage is separate from the house and once there you can enjoy your peaceful seclusion with only birdsong to interrupt your thoughts. The cottage garden and a large native tree area create space and visual privacy from the main house.
Property is non-smoking inside and outside.
