The property

Whether you're looking to relax on the deck while the kids play, explore the nearby Beach, enjoy a takeaway coffee, or immerse yourself in the beauty of the surrounding hills and birdlife, River Cottage offers a wonderful Whitianga retreat. No need to worry about children crossing a road to get to the beach - River Cottage is just a short five-minute walk away from Brophy’s Beach, offering a gorgeous and tranquil setting for beach adventures. Step into your accommodation and indulge as you relax on the expansive deck, savoring a delicious BBQ meal after a day of sunny adventure. This cosy and casual two-bedroom bach sleeps up to five guests across two spacious bedrooms, complemented by a gorgeous bathroom. The well-appointed kitchenette allows you to prepare light meals and snacks at your convenience, with the bonus of an Air-Fryer, Electric Fry-pan, and NutriBullet that is ready to delight. Styled to perfection, River Cottage is situated in a quiet cul-de-sac, boasting a serene rural feel. Overlooking hills, trees, and a farm, bird watchers will revel in keeping an eye out for the abundant birdlife, including Tuis, Kereru, Piwakawaka, and various water birds, adding a touch of enchantment to your stay. For those seeking more outdoor activities, the Tarapatiki stream located behind the property is a popular spot during summer. Kayakers, paddle-boarders, and those looking to cool off on a hot day will delight in the stream's inviting waters. After days spent out and about, make use of the outdoor shower on the neighbouring property (belonging to the owner of River Cottage) for easy and convenient rinsing. If you find yourself craving a takeaway coffee, you're in luck! The local coffee caravan, "The Office," is conveniently parked at the beach and open from Monday to Friday. Indulge in a delicious cup of coffee while enjoying the proximity of this delightful amenity, all within a short walking distance from the property. For an idyllic beach getaway that will whisk you into holiday mode in no time, look no further than the River Cottage!

Please note a bond may be charged at certain times of the year. One of our team members will contact you if this is required for your booking.

As the property has direct access to the stream and nearby beach, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water.
