About the property
- Half Baths0
- Minimum Stay1 nights
Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 4)
Kotare house is set overlooking Christian Bay and Kawau Island with light all day.
We think the Ruru Cottage is especially suitable if you are a couple or have young children who can share your sleeping area.
The cottage is fully appointed for you to live and eat during your visit (though with so many local eating places you may not need to cook!). With the Tawharanui Regional Park only 3km away you have access to one of the most beautiful beaches in New Zealand, great for surfing and body boarding. Walking through the bush you will see Takahe, Kiwi, Saddlebacks, North Island Robins and loads more.
The area has golf courses, art destinations, fishing, shopping, a three screen boutique cinema and so much more.
You have access to part of the courtyard, lawns and are free to explore the covenanted bush. If you wish to do this, make sure you bring suitable shoes as it is a steep valley with a stream at the bottom. The area is perfect for a getaway which still has access to characterful, high quality food, drink, music, cinema, galleries, shopping and a wide range of activities.
There is a local publication called 'Junction' which we will leave in the rooms for you, listing everything going on.
We have two friendly collie dogs.
Please use the outdoor bbq to cook fish and other pungent foods.
Please leave shoes in hallway.

The apartment was safe, clean, and extremely well stocked, everything new.
The apartment was safe, clean, and extremely well stocked, everything new. Stunning view of the bay out the kitchen window, mesmerizing, great view of the “bush” out the back windows, lovely grass yard for wandering and “just taking it all in”. Matakana area has lots to do with wine country and beaches, or just viewing the mixture of emerald green hills dotted with grazing sheep with accents of bush country. We’ e travelled the world and this place is extraordinary! We stayed for a week.
The location was perfect and the view outstanding.
The location was perfect and the view outstanding. The property was superbly fitted out and extremely comfortable. It was initially extremely hot but Alysn and Brian supplied a wall mounted cooler and a fan to alleviate that.
