Bright and charming, painted with the colours of the Pohutukawa tree in full bloom - welcome to Pohutukawa Cottage.

This neat waterfront cottage gets filled with natural light, and the south-facing windows along the length of the house frame the spectacular views down to Millon Bay. Pohutukawa Cottage is furnished with relaxation and comfort in mind, offering the ideal set-up for easy holiday living.

Wake up each morning in the master bedroom, open up the bi-folding doors out onto the sundeck, and soak up the fresh morning air. Spend your summer days wandering down to the water just at the bottom of the garden.

Equipped with everything you might need, including WIFI, this is the ideal spot for a getaway any time of year. In summer, the sundeck and BBQ are ready to host classic kiwi dinners fresh off the grill. Then come winter, you and family will be able to keep toasty warm inside with the heat pump set to the ideal temperature.

Take the kids down along the water to the local playground; there's no need to pack a picnic when you are this close to home when lunchtime rolls around. The surf beach at Tawharanui is an easy 15-minute drive away, as is the Matakana Village with its weekend markets, shops, and nearby vineyards. There certainly is plenty to explore and enjoy close by!

Ready to make the most of this ideal summer spot? Pohutukawa Cottage awaits!

Stayed July 2021

Beautiful location , close to Matakana and Tawharanui Regional Park. Nice, tidy basic 3 bedroomed bach. We were there in winter , the bach doesn’t get a lot of sun and was quite cold unless you run the heat pump

Stayed April 2021

Really lovely spot, gorgeous views and easy walk to beach. Is on the south side with lovely big trees so can be cold outside on the deck. Pretty clean but would be nicer without cobwebs around bed head and outdoor furniture. All in all we did enjoy our stay and this beautiful area

Stayed March 2021

Generally this is a nice place to stay, good views, excellent outdoor area, very close to beach. The house is very much bach quality though, and I didn't feel the price aligned with that. Having been all around the country this last 5 months, we have stayed in a number of similar places for as little as half the cost. If you are good with the price, you should find this a suitable place to stay for up to 6 people.

Stayed January 2021

Great location, fully equipped for a short family holiday.
