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, small oven with hot plate,
and breakfast bar; a second bedroom with a single bed and accompanying trundle bed, 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.
