Oariki Coastal Cottage is on our 34 acre coastal property facing the Pacific Ocean and Whakari (White Island). The beach is down a short bush track or our own access road. There is swimming in the ocean or in lagoons at the Motu River mouth and fishing off our beach or, in season, after Kahawai at the river mouth. Walks can take you along the driftwood strewn beach east to the river mouth or west to Hawai . Our beach has pebbles but at mid to low tide there is a good width of exposed sand.
The cottage has a restful decor with a fireplace for Winter; patios with outdoor furniture and a barbeque for our warm summer evenings.
The kitchen is well equipped for self catering but when you need spoiling you can arrange to come over to our farmhouse next door for some home cooking at a moderate price.
If your group is more than seven (beds in the cottage), or if you would like more space, we have a king bed /en suite/ bedroom in the adjacent main house. This room has its own access and also use of our family room that has comfortable furniture and a midsize snooker table. The family room also has a sleeping loft . If this extra space option interests you please contact us and we can discuss your needs and provide a quote.
We will give you directions to find this secluded location.
