Less than an hour and a half north of Auckland, within easy reach of both East and West Coasts, yet only 15 mins from Mangawhai with its beaches and surf, Riverside Cottage has many advantages as a holiday location.
The eminently affordable, self contained, eastward facing cottage with its sunny aspect is fully equipped including linen and is set in 2 hectares, overlooking and bordered by the river on one side and native bush on another, and with easy access to both.
The accommodation consists of a large bed/sitting room with a queen sized double bed and lounge area with table and easy chairs, television and ranch slider doors leading onto the deck; a kitchen/dining room with sink, microwave, fridge, hotplates and breakfast bar; a second bedroom with bunk beds and a separate toilet and a shower room.
Well behaved dogs are welcome and there is ample room, along the river, in the paddocks, where our 5 Wiltshire Horn sheep live, and in the bush for them to be walked, to run and be exercised. Many different birds, apart from our own free-range chickens and ducks, can be seen on the property including fantails, blue herons, parakeets, kingfishers, geese, pukekoes and a variety of wild ducks. We also breed Monarch butterflies in the garden
We are more than happy for guests to be involved in feeding etc, if they so wish, but the animal's presence does mean that at some times of day, or seasons of the year, and in some areas of the property the levels of activity and noise have to be carefully managed.
