About this listing
Relax,reflect, recover in a simple, quiet environment surrounded by native bush. Built on a ridge, the handcrafted cabin reveals a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside below. Fully self-contained, the cabin includes a small living area with balcony access, a dining nook, fully equipped kitchenette, bedroom with double bed and storage. There are separate enclosed shower and compost toilet rooms on the side deck. The cabin has a washing machine and two separate clotheslines.
One continental breakfast for two is provided. This includes fruit in season, croissant or bagel, butter, jam, coffee/tea and milk. The kitchen has a hotplate, a small refrigerator, cooking and dining utensils, oil, salt and pepper. There is also a large refrigerator on the deck. The living area opens directly onto the balcony, which extends over the ridge. A wood burning stove with plenty of wood and kindling will keep you warm during any cold days or nights.
The cabin is 50 meters above and behind our house and is very private with its own partially enclosed courtyard and balcony. Apart from us, the nearest neighbour is 1 kilometer away.
You have your own parking space and a key to come and go as you wish.
Interaction with guests
We respect your privacy, but are available to help make your visit more comfortable should you need us.
Kohukohu Village is approximately 15 minutes away and has a cafe, pub, grocery store and an art gallery. Rawene, Opononi and the Kauri Forest make good day trips; Mitimiti Beach is 40 km away; Ngawha Hot Springs is just outside of Kaikohe, which is approximately 30 minutes from Rawene.
While we are centrally located, we are very rural North Island. Plan to take longer than expected when travelling to nearby tourist destinations.
