House rules

Nikau Cottage is nestled amid six acres of stunning native NZ bush yet close to the most beautiful beaches, golf course and Mangawhai Village just 4 minutes away. You’ll love Nikau Cottage because of the peace and tranquility, the comfy bed, the cosiness, the pure rainwater filled hot tub. Our boutique cottage is ideally suitable for couples only. A perfect retreat and the perfect stopover to, or from, the Bay of Islands capturing the essence of a New Zealand experience.

The space
Nikau Cottage is on full solar back up in times of outage, but still on grid. Natural rain water is collected via the roof. Our aim is to be carbon neutral, however we still rely on LPG gas for califont and heating hot tub.

Guest access
The stairs are at the base of your carpark, but note, there is no wheelchair access. We suggest parking at base of stairs allowing for universal access to the main driveway.

Other things to note
Remember, we will reheat the hot tub during the days of your stay, as the gas can be tricky and dangerous to ignite.
Just give the tub a stir before entering, as the hot water obviously rises.
If too hot, just pull out big tap from trellis wall and cool to taste. Enjoy.

PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE TOTALLY RELIANT ON RAINWATER, SO PLEASE USE WATER WISELY.

I'm a happily married father, who has been in the radio industry most of my working life. Now, I'm the owner of two small local radio stations in one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand, Mangawhai. I also voice radio and TV commercials, iBooks and audio visual projects from my home studio amid six acres of native bush where I also have four beehives and five surfboards, catering to my other passions. But we love travel and travellers, and sharing our environment with other like minded people.
