This is your home away from home, setup for relaxed, convenient, fun living.

Your romantic studio getaway offers boutique country accommodation  in a small tree-lined valley overlooking the waterfall, privately positioned on our 45 acre farm stay on the outskirts of Auckland city.

As soon as you step inside you will sense its charm and warmth, equipped to a very high standard to ensure that your stay is a memorable occasion.

Rustic yet charming, revel in the relaxing atmosphere and feel yourself  unwind as you step off the world for a wee while.

We are close enough if you need us but far enough away to ensure  your  privacy. The cottage is ideal for singles, couples, as a honeymoon retreat and even the small younger family,  whether for a weekend getaway or longer term accommodation.

From the comforts of your country lodge sit back and enjoy the varying moods of the waterfall. Some typical waterfall views below.


The charm of this unique setting unfolds with the for ever changing conditions- driven by the weather. Sheltered from the prevailing winds, stunning in the dry hot summer and cosy and dramatic in the depth of winter. With the rain falling, there is something incredibly warming and romantic to experience the sound of rain on an iron roof when one is warm and dry.

Try something FUN and a little different- a Waterfall pizza then soak in the outdoor bath

Cook your whole meal using firewood supplied and  enjoy the ambiance of the wood burning outdoor pizza oven, with views to the waterfall. Garnish your pizza base with your favorite topping or cook that tasty steak, warm the garlic bread, toast the marshmallows, to the warmth of the cast iron outdoor wood-fired oven. So simple to use,  and you will be amazed how quickly and easily a memorable  meal is produced. Then soak in the outdoor bath overlooking the waterfall to finish the perfect evening.
