Rata Cottage is truly a home away from home and can be described as ?absolutely charming?. Nestled at the end of a long private driveway, the home and its lovely garden are a delightful surprise. The quiet and peacefulness of the surroundings is immediately evident, and lush native gardens encircle the property. Everything about this home and property is pleasing to the eye.
That this lovely home is warm and welcoming goes without saying... A cosy outdoor patio with its glass roof and tensioned awnings enables you to either have the full el fresco feel with all the blinds rolled up, or block out the breeze or inclement weather by rolling them down. Comfortable outdoor furniture makes this a great spot to take an afternoon nap in the sun or read a book, and the 6-burner BBQ makes this a perfect area for entertaining in all weather.
The spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area has a simple elegance and is charmingly appointed with its comfy furniture and eclectic native artwork. And you?ll certainly enjoy preparing meals in the modern well designed kitchen with all the modern easy to use appliances any chef would be happy to cook with. A fireplace adjacent to the kitchen/living room provides cosy winter warmth and there?s always plenty of firewood on hand.
The master bedroom has French doors which open out to the gardens and the surrounding native trees providing a delightful backdrop to the distinctly appealing decor. The second bedroom has one entire wall of windows which makes this a very light and bright room. Each of the three bedrooms is furnished with style and supreme comfort in mind. The ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom is a special feature with its French doors and bi-fold windows which brings the garden into the bathroom and will transport you to an exotic spa as you soak in the luxurious bath.

Quiet yet so close to AUCKLAND
What a find!. Fantastic private location one street back from beach. Easy walk to Devonport and central to North Shore, Waiheke Island, and Auckland City. The cottage was immaculate and catered for every need. The decor was tasteful which extended to the art in the garden. Great indoor outdoor flow, very peaceful and relaxing. It was very hard to leave! Thank you.
Lovely property, well maintained in a great location, tucked away down the driveway, just magic.
Cheltenham Cottage was beautiful - compact, airy, with lots of natural light. Good appliances, TV, showers, a huge bath. It's two minutes' walk from a great beach (perfect for families) and great walks, whether along the beach or up and round a headland which has superb vistas. Great little shops a five minute walk away (including an excellent French cafe/bakery). Other beaches a fairly short walk away. Near Devonport, a lovely little town, and thus to the ferry boat across to Auckland city.
