There is swimming in the ocean or in lagoons at the Motu River mouth and fishing off our beach, or, in season, after Kahawai at the river mouth. Walks can take you along the driftwood strewn beach east to the river mouth or west to Hawai. our beach has pebbles but at mid to low tide there is a good width of exposed sand. The cottage has a restfull décor with fireplace for winter, patios with outdoor furniture and a barbeque for warm summer evenings. The kitchen is well equipped for self catering but when you need spoiling you can arrange to come over to our farmhouse next door for home cooking at a moderate price. Now also on offer is Bed and Breakfast in the farmhouse--king size bed with ensuite and plenty of space to relax POA We will give you directions to find our secluded location. The night sky is unaffected by town light loom as the nearest town is 40k away behind a hill!!! Sleep to the sound of the ocean, wake to the sound of birds.

This is a very wonderful place. The cottage feels like you are somewhere in France or Italy - it has a really special feel. The gardens are lovely - we were there in mid-winter so I imagine they are fantastic in all the other seasons too. The coast is wild and elemental. If you want a retreat to read or write and go for rambling walks then this is a fabulous place to do it from. The kitchen is very adequate but not really designed for big cook-ups - no real oven etc. But there is a gas hob, a microwave, BBQ, full sized fridge/freezer etc. Both bedrooms/living rooms are really spacious with wonderful interiors and outlooks. We would love to stay here again.

What a charming place Oariki Cottage turned out to be. Chris is friendly, knowledgable and interesting to talk to, but you feel a sense of privacy even though the main house is right in front of the cottage. The beach and short forest walk are great and the area is stunning. Can't wait to return. The only slight downside is the small dining/living area beside the kitchen. More than made up for if its nice enough to sit outside to eat and relax.
Response from Owner
Thanks Richard and also thanks for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy.
We loved this place. Quaint, well appointed cottage and beautiful gardens. Access to the beach was easy. Chris was very welcoming and helpful. We recommend it for a quiet get-away. Thank you.
