About the property

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

Idyllic clifftop setting overlooking rocky East Bay and surrounds. Hear and view the ocean and dolphins from within the cottage or from your deck, the views are spectacular and ever changing.

The cottage contains all the usual conveniences including the SKY Sports channel, iPod base etc to make your stay comfortable.

You are free to use our solar heated salt water chlorinated swimming pool, gas barbecue and covered barbecue area.

Free wireless broadband and free anytime telephone calls within New Zealand.

Just a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive to Mahinepua Bay which offers safe swimming, kayaking, boating or fishing or just a lazy day on the beach and exploring the rocky areas at low tide. Tauranga Bay is 10 minutes away.

If you are feeling energetic there is a DOC walk from Mahinepua Bay which is well worth the effort as it has the finest view in NZ.

The famous Kauri Cliffs golf course is 15 minutes away and Whangaroa Golf Club 20 minutes. Other areas close by that are worth a visit are Tauranga Bay, Whangaroa Harbour, Marlin Hotel and Whangaroa Gamefish Club, Matauri Bay surf beach which also has a grocery store with a liquor licence and a restaurant if you don't feel like cooking and the delightful village of Kaeo, with its museum, craft shop, post office, chemist shop, licensed restaurant, hotel and supermarket is 15 minutes away, The substantial town of Kerikeri is a 40 minute drive, perhaps a visit to their famous Sunday farmers and craft market?

A day trip to Cape Reinga via the famous Kauri Gum museum and cafe and onto Houhora takes you to the top of NZ and is a must, on your return a stop-over at the delightful fishing village of Mangonui, featuring the world famous 'Mangonui Fish Shop', which not only has the freshest fish in New Zealand but a tempting variety of home made gourmet seafood delights which are just irresistable.

A small house trained dog is fine with prior approval but definitely no big dogs.

This is the one!! It is super cute, clean and comfortable and is secluded, tropical and lush. The view is stunning and second to none. As my U.S.A. internal clock was adjusting to NZ time I had the pleasure of waking up about 3:30 a.m. the first two nights and was treated to a show of shooting stars while stargazing at the trillions of stars that lit up this northern sky. I will never forget it for the rest of my life. So, so happy we stayed and definitely coming back!!

We loved our relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our relaxing holiday. The hosts next door are lovely people and eager to help with our every need. The cottage is well-maintained and a joy to stay in with incredible views! Only downside was the intermittant, and at most times unavailable, wifi connection. Otherwise, it was fantastic.
