Comfortable self contained unit with private entrance. Great outdoor spaces, garden and orchard setting, easy parking, . My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.
“We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Tissi & Pete's garden studio - my first Airbnb experience! Situated in a gorgeous and private garden setting, inside the studio is so well-laid out, is comfortable and has all the special touches you need to enjoy your homely stay. Location is peaceful (just what we needed!) yet a very short drive to Kerikeri township and local areas. I really enjoyed using their pool which was kindly open to us and am missing snuggles with their cat Pash already. Truly lovely hosts and so welcoming - thank you both again :)”
Please note we are changing. THE VINEYARD HAS GONE. THE COTTAGE IS ENCLOSED WITH IT'S OWN GARDEN. Welcome to Paradise Garden Cottage. Pet friendly, peaceful, beautiful and private, only 15 minutes from Kerikeri. This is a brilliant base from which to explore all that Northland has to offer. No matter what the season, there is plenty to see and do: Harbours, bays, lakes, waterfalls, forests, vineyards, great beaches, good restaurants and cafes, cool markets, fishing charters.
“We loved our stay here. It was such a peaceful place to return at the end of the day. The night skies are amazing and the views are top notch too. We enjoyed sitting and taking it all in with our morning coffees. Our accommodation was spotless, lovely and well appointed. We appreciated how easy it was to drive into Kerikeri, as well as to other places of interest. There were great tips about hidden gems provided too. Siobhan was a wonderful and gracious host with excellent communication. We would love to stay here again and would definitely recommend it to others!”
The ultimate romantic retreat! Secluded Magic Cottage, with its stunning views of the water, is perched on the backs of the peaceful Takou River, hidden beneath ancient Pohutukawa trees. The romantic cabin has a relaxing outdoor claw foot bath overlooking the water; wrap around decks, 5 acres of sub-tropical gardens to explore; a private jetty & boathouse, deserted sandy beaches a short paddle downstream; and 150 acres of organic farmland, native bush and river to fish, swim, kayak and explore.
“The Magic Cottage is a secluded and very nicely presented cottage just by the river, located in a group of other similar properties in what basically amounts to a rainforest garden. It's placed off from the other buildings and nicely shielded from outside view, although its important to note that due to the 'working farm' nature of the area, during the day there can occasionally be the sound of chainsaws, ATVs, passing cars, barking dogs etc - although these didn't really bother us. The provided kayaks and equipment were great, as was the advice and suggestions of places we could take them. The BBQ and other amenities were as described and were functional as expected - although the BBQ has clearly seen better days and is missing a few screws and a wheel! One thing that's important to note is the area has basically no mobile phone coverage on either Spark or Vodafone, and the wifi provided (at the time of writing) does not reach the Magic Cottage, instead only being accessible from the guesthouse, located some 500m away). However once you're within signal range it provided rock solid connectivity - just go easy on it - it's only about 5mbit down / 0.8mbit up and is shared with the other guests, due to the rural location! Overall the Magic Cottage was the secluded and private getaway I hoped it would be - though be aware that the surrounding area is a rather busy place, and you should expect to be 'offline' for most of your stay!”
