“The quintessential waterfront Kiwi Bach, cherished and impeccably maintained, retains traces of the timeless family summers of yore.”
Nestled amidst trees, it offers a uniquely special retreat, allowing you to step back in time, surrounded by nature, with the water gently lapping at your feet. Our joy knew no bounds in this idyllic and private haven.

“Great place on the waters edge”- megan, February 2022
“We had a great stay.”
Classic Kiwi Bach that had everything one could need. Then there's the sea only metres from the deck, going to sleep with the sound of the sea and waking up to a perfect view, 10/10. Having the beach all to yourself is a delight.- Bruce, January 2022
“This was our second stay at Waters Edge and once again, it was perfect in every way!”
The thing with this property is that it offers everything required for a relaxing peaceful holiday away from work, people and everyday life. It is not fancy nor big but it has everything our family of four needed and was more than adequate. We would recommend this property to our family and friends and would love to come back again some day (if availability allowed!)- Michelle, January 2022
“What a find!”
Tucked away down a long driveway, this is truly waters edge. We had such a lovely, relaxing time. Kids swam safely in the private bay, bach was spacious and well equipped. Overall so happy with our stay there, shame we couldn’t stay longer!- Kate, January 2022
“We had an amazing stay at Waters Edge Cottage, perfect location close to Hahei yet completely private.”
We had the bay to ourselves! Great time spent fishing and the kids loved playing on the beach. House was cozy and everything we needed was there :). We cant wait to come back again! Thank you!- Flora, May 2021
“Beautiful Bach with an amazing view and own private little beach area.”
Felt really secluded. Bach was comfortable and clean. Would book again in a heartbeat.- Jean, February 2021
!! Exactly what you need if you are wanting to get away from it all and relax. Off the beaten track a bit but surrounded by bush and the ocean is right at your door! Basic cottage with everything you need - would definitely book here again!- Michelle, December 2020
“Our stay was just beautiful.”
talk about living the kiwi dream! house was a neat little place with everything u needed for this type of stay. it was nice and quiet but not to quiet u feel like your to loud. our kids had a blast on there own beach, which took me back to my childhood days up coro. its not to far if you need something from the shop. its definitely the type of place you come to absolutely chill out and explore your own small bay and bush surroundings. we have 3 boys and 1 has cerebral palsy he got around great her just had to move a few chairs to stop him tripping over in the house but other then that the house was good. I also caught a kahawai on the rocks highlight of my weekend. hope we left the place ok forgot to pop the sofa bed back together sorry guys. but over all we had a blast and can't wait to come back thanks again and nice meeting you.- Krysel, October 2020
“Love that we got our own beach to enjoy.”
The property is 10 min from Hahei town so make sure you have all groceries with you to enjoy your stay.- Gina, February 2020
“The Bach was private in a gorgeous location that was central to Hahei Beach, Cathedral Cove, Cooks Beach & Whitianga.”
Amazing!- Kelly, January 2020
“Its a lovely place right at the water.”
The fireplace is lovely and the whole area is actually steeped in History which can be somehow felt in the energy of the place. Very uplifting!- Abhishek, September 2019
“Perfect little hideaway if you want seclusion amongst the trees looking out to the water”- jared, April 2019
“Waters Edge Cottage is an idyllic location next to a little stone and sand beach.”
Perfect for a relaxing summer holiday - we had no need to go further than our own beach for swimming at all tides and getting out in our kayak. Comfortable and well equipped bach. Cathedral Cove Kayak Tours were a great outing.- Janice, February 2019

About the location
Cooks Beach offers a lovely stretch of white sandy beach, perfect for safe swimming, relaxed walks and soaking in the sun. Embark on a short, but steep bush walk from Shakespeare Reserve and you'll find yourself at Lonely Bay a true unspoilt beauty of a beach, surrounded by native bush and high cliff faces. All of our Cooks Beach holiday homes are pre-inspected prior to your arrival and are ready for instant online booking..
As the property has unfenced access to the beach, adults should closely supervise young children while outside to ensure they are safe around water. There are three ways to get to the beach from the cottage and the pathway to the beach is rocky so guests with limited mobility should be careful walking down to the beach.
The beach changes occasionally with storms and sometimes rocks pile up below the steps. If the area below the steps is too rocky to navigate there is a path from the lawn to the boat ramp, which goes across a small stream.
Bookings must be back to back over high peak.
The owner's small boats on the property are not available for renters use.
The second lavatory/shower is accessed via a ramp from outside the cottage.
There is a security camera at the top of the drive, but this does not affect guest privacy.
Please note the boat ramp is suitable for a small boat up to 5 metres.
Please note that the property is strictly not pet friendly. Thank-you for your understanding.
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.
