Perfect cottage for my husband and young son. First visit to Kohukohu as were attending a friends wedding. Comfy bed, lovely, cosy, quaint and remote. Reminded me of my great grandfather's house, surrounded by fruit trees. Buster loved the DVDs! Homemade chocs and shortbread biscuits devine. Totally recommend staying here to all.
This is a lovely little bach. Though quite basic it is spotlessly clean, has great views from the deck and is a very comfortable place to spend a few days. We did day trips to Russell and Waitangi and the ferry to Rawene transports you to some great walks and beaches. There is also a fantastic cafe in Kohu Kohu that does great coffee and food that is well worth a visit.
