  • We had the most wonderful stay at Kowhai Cottage over Easter. The Cottage is really lovely and has been very well done with everything you could possibly need. The deck leads you out on to the most incredible view of the ocean. We said many times what a great house it was. Will definitely stay again!

  • We spent a lovely Auckland Anniversary Weekend at Kowhai Cottage with 3 generations and it was perfect for us. We adored the view so much it was hard to drag ourselves away to the beaches and vineyards and Stony Batter tunnels. Did need a car to get around, but the house had everything we needed.

  • We found the property very comfortable and easy to get to with the bus from Matiatia stopping right outside the front gate. Of note the kitchen was well stocked, plenty of wine glasses and a coffee machine which I enjoyed. The bed was very comfortable and an added bonus was the heat pump which made the house cosy and warm very quickly. Stunning sea and land views, and great value. We will definitely be back.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Kowhai Cottage on 20 and 21st September 2019. We LOVED the view over Oneroa Bay and all of the islands beyond. Also enjoyed sitting on the deck watching the trees, birds, sea and sunsets! My partner and I wanted to escape the city and have a relaxing weekend and this is exactly what we found. The location is super convenient to get to the restaurants and of course the vineyards for wine tasting. The cottage is spacious and open plan. Beds are super comfy – we will be back!

  • WOW to Kowhai Cottage. We came over for a birthday with the whole family and stayed on the 7th & 8th of Sept 2019. Spent the days and evenings exploring the Island and really enjoyed coming back to the cottage to relax. We enjoyed BBQ’s on the deck with the awesome view of the bay and the boats moored there. Place was clean and tidy and plenty of everything we required. Loved that the bus stop was across the road to and from ferry – very convenient and such a breeze to get to.
