Located only 90 minutes from Auckland this is a cosy studio cottage located on a
working farm so there is lots to see and experience whether you choose to stay put
or get out and explore.
On the property:
There are three QEII Reserves, which are available to explore at your leisure.
The opportunity to walk through valleys with fascinating limestone rock
formations and the natural beauty surrounding you is quite breathtaking and it is well worth it.
The wild life includes goats, turkeys, peacocks, hares and birdlife.
You may get to see aspects of the farm in action if we happen to be moving the animals
or could be able to share experiences with you. Please email directly with questions around this
if you are after some farm time.
Or you could just relax on the deck and soak up the view and
peaceful surroundings that this unique part of New Zealand offers.
Definitely a great opportunity to detox and recharge your batteries!
Or if you do want to get out and explore the area a bit more:
The Tasman Sea is a few miles to the West as the crow flies, so you could drive to Port Waikato and enjoy the beach or
head south only 20 minutes and explore the near by Nikau Caves and have a coffee fix at their cafe
Not far is also the Waingaro Hot Springs and several country pubs such as the Rangiriri Hotel.
Mercer is back on SH1 where there is Mercer Cheese which is worth a look and other amenities.
Down SH1 a bit further there is also the Greenstone Museum and shop at Te Kauwhata which is worth checking out.
This property is definitely for those looking to unwind. Bring everything you need with you as the nearest supermarket is 40mins away at Tuakau / Pukekohe.
Cellphone coverage is limited for Vodafone customers so this really is your chance to get away from it all.
Couple or single person preferred due to the size of the cottage.
No pets allowed as this is a working farm.
Smoking allowed outside only.
Must respect that you are on a Farm and close all farm gates that you open.
NOTE: Under Kiwi bach tradition you are expected to: Clean the house and do the dishes before you leave; Bring your own linen (towels/sheets/tea towels);
A wide variety of wildlife eg turkeys,goats,peacocks
The property was located in a perfect location for my partner and I to experience some down time from Auckland. Pitch black nights and driving for miles without reaching any sort of civilization were definite highlights. The freshest eggs I ever ate were also a welcome treat
Perfect little cottage with all the essentials. Lovely and clean too. The view was a delight to wake up to each day
Great weekend getaway as always - only 1.5 hours out of Auckland, but feels like miles away. Looking forward to the next time already. Thanks for a lovely stay Nona, see you again soon.
Just what we thought! Beautiful, quiet, rugged farmland with such hospitable people nearby. Great spot to sit on the deck and watch the sun set. Very clean and had everything we needed. Enjoyed the stove and cooking a roast in the oven too.
We had a brilliant stay at Kaike Cottage. The facilities are basic but everything you need is there. The location is outstanding and the view delightful. It is a great place to explore the region from. We would love to come back sometime for a longer stay!
