Overview

Photos and Description of this Waitakere holiday house

Bach or holiday home, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 2)

Private peaceful and sunny little cabin with stunning valley views,overlooking native bush with bird-life in abundance.This is eco-living at its best-complete with solar panel for the shower,outdoor kitchen which is very well equiped and completely covered and a newly built compost loo in a magical position- down a little path next to a little gurgling stream.This is only 1 year old and is is designed using re-cyled materiels .to have the least impact on the natural environment possible.The water is all filterd rain water. This is one of the few places left which is free from all cell phone frequencies and wi-fi-a perfect place to re-charge and relax.Broadband internet is available close by if needed .Also a phone for emergencies.

Bethells Beach is a wild beach with black sands-great for surfing and.waliking-only 6 mins drive away.There are amazing bush walks at Cascade Kauri only 5 mins drive and a lovely cool river for swimming.

The owner lives in a house close by if needed -yet the cabin is completely private.Could be a good writers retreat or for a romantic getaway-there is a brazier to sit around under the stars.

This is a gorgeous place in a special location at an affordable price.

Beautiful location, and we liked the eco character of the cabin but could do with a spring clean - especially the mildew wasn't very appealing.

We stayed at the totara lodge for 2 nights and it was amazing. It was a great experience. The view from the cabin at night was magical especially with the fire on place. A beautiful place to getaway, romantic too!

Excellent Eco-friendly facilities.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent Eco-friendly facilities. Bedroom was nice and warm, and the covered-in kitchen area was also warm thanks to the little fireplace- the perfect place to relax and watch the rain fall amongst beautiful scenery.

A 5 star "glamping" experience.

Like peace and quiet, bird life and being surrounded by the outdoors-then go here!

Like peace and quiet, bird life and being surrounded by the outdoors-then go here!

Don't be put off by outside fire/shower/kitchen, it's warm inside the cabin with just a duvet (end of winter too), and the fire heats the entire kitchen/dining room area in seconds!

Loved this place!

The cabin is beautifully sited on a gentle slope overlooking the bush clad valley.

The cabin is beautifully sited on a gentle slope overlooking the bush clad valley. It was an absolute pleasure to sit in the outdoor kitchen watching the weather blow across the trees. Even in mid-winter the kitchen was comfortable and practical and the fire was a treat in the evenings!
