About this listing
Our cottage has a unique 'kiwi' style with timber lining and full insulation, and was moved onto it's estuary- side site in 2005, then fully renovated.
It's proximity to Whitianga's centre and surrounds makes it a most convenient stopover.
Our Kiwi Cottage overlooks Whitianga Marina in the quietest corner of town, yet within metres of cafes, local pubs, restaurants and shops.
From your comfy double bedroom with private bathroom, stroll to beautiful beaches and coastal/bush walks, world class hot springs and spa, movie theatre and more - or catch the ferry across the estuary and hire a scooter to visit famous Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove.
Our cottage is clean and comfortable and you are welcome to make yourself at home while you are here. Wifi internet is available for your convenience and there is a lovely deck which is the perfect place to sit and relax after a long day of activities.
Whitianga is an unspoilt playground of paradise where you can experience just about anything. From swimming to diving, to bone carving there is pretty much something for everyone.
In short, your stay can be as relaxed or active as you wish in this special part of our country.
Come and enjoy!
Mutual respect for privacy and independence
Total respect for our home and contents
About the Host, Ruth
Hi from Rick (Kiwi) and Ruth (ex Aussie).
We think we're very lucky to live in Whitianga on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula where we have no shortage of visitors from within NZ and from all over the world.
We've both travelled quite a lot, enjoy meeting fellow wanderers and making them feel at home here, and we can be persuaded to share the odd bottle of wine - or two - as stories as well, are shared.
But when we're away visiting relatives during our winter, we like the cottage to be lived in and enjoyed - and that also helps pay the rates!
So if you're looking for somewhere convenient and cosy to stay with a beautiful region to explore from your doorstep, or you have a job to do or a book to write, our cottage might be right for you.
We're open to discussion regarding the rate and dates, so if you're interested or have any queries at all about a longer term stay, please get in touch through the airbnb website.
