About this Holiday House

A much loved accommodation option, new to the Holiday Houses booking platform. Our cute and cosy cottage is perched near the top of the tranquil Waitawheta Valley at the gateway into the Northern Kaimai Ranges. Enjoy river swimming and hiking right from the property or just relax on the deck and enjoy the beauty of the valley. 5 minute drive to the Hauraki Rail Trail and the award-winning Falls Retreat restaurant. 10 minutes drive into the heart of the Karangahake Gorge and Waihi and 15 minutes through to Paeroa or out to Waihi Beach. This worker's cottage from the kauri-logging days of the early 1900's was extensively renovated in 2017, whilst ensuring plenty of charm remained throughout. The cottage is fully insulated (walls, ceiling and floor) and has a modern fireplace, heat transfer system and high quality panel heating - perfect for winter getaways as well as dreamy summer days on the deck. Feel free to wander across the land, pat the donkeys and chat to the cows. Dean's Track crosses our southern paddock and Waitawheta Track starts adjacent to our property. We live on the farm approximately 100m away but out of view and with a respect for your privacy. Please note however our driveway does pass the cottage. Linen is provided. This includes sheets, duvets, pillows, bath towels and mat, hand towels and tea towels. Wifi is free and high speed, suitable for working and watching Netflix etc. The TV has a chromecast plugged in and there is a bluetooth speaker in the lounge. Plenty of fire wood is provided and we will have the fire going for your arrival during the colder months. A portacot and high chair are available on request. Late check out and early check in may be possible, just ask. A cleaning fee of $50 applies to all bookings. This is to ensure a consistent high standard for every arriving guest. We aim for our cottage to be rustic by feel but spotlessly clean.

victor cameron
great rural location . great host. very warm and comfortable cottage .
Alexandra Gill
A beautifully presented cottage that was comfortable and warm, with special touches from the owners like having fresh organic milk in the fridge. The location is outstanding for exploring the area on bike and on foot. The donkeys were a hit with the youngest member of our family. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
