Property type cottage


About the property


Spend an unforgettable holiday in the enchanting countryside valley in the foothills of the Kaimai ranges. Surrounded by stunning garden, The Plane Tree Cottage is a hidden gem set amongst half a hectare of lush greenery. An architecturally designed and built, owner operated retreat, just 4 mins drive to the Katikati township, 15 mins to Waihi and 35 mins to Tauranga, this secluded property is a countryside retreat like no other.

The Plane Tree Cottage offers a haven of peace and tranquility against the backdrop of native bush and home orchard, giving a new meaning to " getting away from it all". It is the perfect place for nature-lovers, a quiet retreat for busy city folks, artists, and writers, or a romantic weekend getaway.

Wake up to the peaceful sound of native birds, enjoy the company of our feathered friends and farm fresh eggs, help yourself to our organic seasonal orchard fruit, read a book under the shady London Plane trees. Discover the quaint mural town of Katikati or one of the near beaches, take a day trip to Karangahape Gorge, go cycling around the shores of the Bay of Plenty - take a pick from the endless amount of activities available at you doorstep. And at the end of the day, sit back and relax with a glass of local wine and watch the colours of the sky turn into a starry vista from the privacy of your own deck.


The Plane Tree Cottage offers:

- Modern two-story self-contained accommodation.

- Loft bedroom with a super king size bed - can be split into two king - single beds if needed.

- Open-plan lounge with TV, and couch that folds out to double-bed.

- Large wooden deck suitable for alfresco dining.

- Modern kitchen and dining with fridge/freezer, microwave oven, hob/oven, toaster, coffee machine and selection of teas.

- Full-private toilet/bathroom with shower and heated towel rail.

- Washing machine.

- Air con/heat pump

- Free internet/wifi.


When guests arrive at The Plane Tree Cottage we will show you around the property and introduce you to our small family of farmyard pets, and the friendly Alpacas next door.

While you are staying here, the cottage will be your own private oasis. Feel free to explore the grounds at you leisure.

We can offer tips and ideas for enjoying the Bay of Plenty area, and are readily available and close by if you need assistance.

We also tidy up the cottage daily at your convenience.


Guests have their own private parking at the cottage.


This Cottage has a septic system. Please do not flush anything other than toilet paper.

No visitors, photoshoots, filming without prior written approval from hosts.

Rather than fast and hard rules, we like to conduct our lives with respect, compassion and consciousness of how our behaviour affects the world around us. Please contact us about coming to the cottage.

We have some safety concerns that we would like to make sure you are aware of to make an informed decision.
