This warm, cosy, self contained cedar cottage is for a couple and can include a child or infant. Tranquility is the key. The only noise is natures chorus of birdsong. Indoor, outdoor living enhances the style we are trying to offer. Winter rates.
The cottage is a single room with kitchen and bedroom combined with a separate bathroom. There is an attached patio with the bush and fruit trees around. The music from native birds is a symphony of nature. We live with solar electricity and solar hot water. Because of our eco systems we can't supply laundry facilities but there is a public laundry close by.
We are 2.5 kms fom the port of Opua and 6 kilometres from Pahia. This area is a world recognized islands, beach and maritime attraction. Many sailors from around the world make this their haven
Interaction with guests
We are semi retired mariners who have sailed the world and now live in paradise. We know our beautiful area intimately and can give experienced guidance to travelers to maximize their stay in this warm, friendly part of clean, green New Zealand.
Other things to note
Our area is a renowned international tourist destination and the Bay of Islands has many stunning attractions to be seen by air, by yacht, by boat, by foot. There are many sea and bush walks and treks around here. Cycle trails abound and villages with art, pottery and boutique shops galore. If one likes adventure you can skydive, para sail, water ski, jet boat and surf.
We have internet wireless access for emails and travel plans. We are dog friendly and our Blue Heeler, Poppy, loves company. Smoking outside. Smouldering inside!
I am a retired mariner. I have sailed the world in a sailing ship I built myself. I have lived an amazing life and like to share stories and meet other travelers. My partner Michelle is also a sailor and chef. We live in a solar powered cottage we built ourselves and can accommodate travelers in the cedar cottage adjacent to our own. Our lifestyle is simple and we hope environmentally sensible.
