Our guest cottage is separate from the main house, designed for 2-3 adults, and semi self contained. The Magnolia Cottage accommodation includes a healthy, continental breakfast! We are surrounded by native bush and sub- tropical trees. Very relaxed and rural , quiet and sheltered from road noise; wake up to birdsong and enjoy the South pacific flair. The property is central to famous beaches, wineries, restaurants, walks and the Omaha golf course is 3 miles down the road.

We practice permaculture and organic philosophies. Enjoy our wonderful chemical free rain water, and fresh air.

The cottage is very clean and quiet yet convenient to Matakana and the beaches. Susanne is helpful and knowledgeable. A wonderful retreat!

Susanne was very welcoming and provides a good non cooked breakfast each day. The accommodation ideally suits 2 but can accommodate 3. Located a little out of town so you probably need a car. But if you want a rural setting it is ideal. Would definitely recommend this accommodation David

Susanne User Profile

Originally from Southern Germany, our family has been living in NZ for more than 20 years and spent 8 years of this time running a quite involved accommodation business. My education includes Interior Design and Tourism. Due to other job obligations we are now offering B&B away from the main house, in a purpose build cottage, self-contained and quiet.
As a designer I am passionate about decorating space and creating interesting interiors. Other passions are photography/art, landscaping, plants and animals.
