About this Holiday House

Explore the far, far north from our well appointed self contained cottage in beautiful tranquil location. Cape Reinga is only an hour's drive away and it's only 20 mins to 90 Mile Beach or 15 mins to the gorgeous white sand east coast beaches. The cosy cottage is spacious and immaculately clean with most mod cons. It's seldom cold here in the north but you will probably still enjoy a snuggly evening by the fire (loads of firewood provided), after your day's activities. One separate bedroom with Queen Bed and Sofa bed in lounge. The cottage is situated on our King Protea farm where flowers are grown for both export and the local market. Fishermen - heaps of safe parking for your boat and trailer and a fish prep area. The well equipped kitchen along with gas BBQ make meal preparation simple and it's just a short drive to local restaurants for sit down service or takeaways if that's your preference. As our guest you are welcome to stroll among the flowers which are grown for the export market and you'll probably come across a horse or two if you venture over the bridge to the back of the farm where rabbits, hares, turkeys, quail and a variety of other wild creatures may pop up to surprise you. So, if it's peace, quiet and nature you enjoy come and visit.

What a fabulous place. Truly a piece of paradise. We had a three night stay to celebrate my birthday and enjoyed everything about it. The cottage is beautiful, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. The grounds are delightful. The pond and bridge reminiscent of a trip to Monet’s garden. Morning wanderings were peaceful; we saw a variety of bird life. Polly , our host, was really lovely. She lent us boogie boards and was happy to chat and answer all our questions about the area. The three dogs, Ted, Dora and Scout were a delight. They really enjoyed all the fussing and attention which we were happy to give. I thoroughly recommend Protea Park Cottage, I think you will struggle to find somewhere as special. Thanks again to Polly and family for making us so welcome and letting us share their little bit of paradise...lovely memories to keep forever...

Wonderful place to stay. I was there for almost eight weeks. Very comfortable, clean, and well equipped cottage in a beautiful and peaceful rural location, but not far from Pukenui village. The owners are very kind and helpful and are usually on hand to help with anything you need. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this property and I heartily recommend it.
This beautiful, quiet area was just magnificent. Polly and Frank we loved everything from the vast land area to Dora and Teddy  I see why you moved there now. 3 Nights and back to Auckland I miss the little cottage, it was well equipped with everything we needed. A huge thank you for keeping me and Alex well supplied and cosy, its a place I would definitely love to come too <3
