Looking for somewhere special where you can chillout, kick back, and experience the magic of the Bay of Islands?
Affectionately called “The Woo Hoo” cottage, my fully self-contained studio is for you.
The stunning view over the Bay and across to Russell takes your breathe away. Instantly, you feel a sense of peace and a positive vibration envelops you, welcoming you to your own magical world.
This is a special place for special people, come and experience the magic -stay more than DAY!
The view is outstanding, across the Bay to Russell. The seascape is ever changing as is the lighting. Watch yachts and cruisers come and go, cutting pathways through the blueness of the sea. It can be difficult to drag yourself away from such an amazing sight.
For those musically inclined, there is a guitar (sort of kiwi tradition really). Why not immerse all of your senses.
Take a walk in the garden, stop and smell the roses, find a meditation spot, or pick yourself some fresh herbs to make a cup of tea (mint is a favorite). Handpick some fruit or maybe pluck some fresh lettuce leaves, you never know what might be in season.
The studio is magical and you will find yourself totally absorbed in its peacefulness and ambiance. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a meal.
There is also a colouring book and pencils for those wanting to do some mind therapy.
There is onsite parking (on the right beside the wishing well), or your car will be quite safe on the roadside. Its about a 5 minute drive to Paihia. If you are walker, it takes about 30 - 40 minutes to walk into Paihia. If the tide is out, you can enjoy the stroll via the coastline.
Kerikeri is about a 15 minute drive away or head south for a 45 minute drive to Whangarei.
There is room to park a boat if you have one. If you are a fisher person and catch a fish or two, I have the perfect little smoke house and I can prepare a secret brine - smoked fish like you have never tasted before.
I work from home (I write) and I am usually on hand and happy to answer any questions, suggest things to do and see, or if I am not busy, I'm happy to chat, or share a wine or a beer. Depending on my time, I am also happy to cook and share an evening meal, or in some cases, treat you to the best home cooked roast you have ever had, (I'm also pretty good on vegetarian dishes too if that is your calling). Again, time depending I may be able to take you on a drive to some of my favorite spots, or have a picnic at the beach, or go fishing.
If you just want to be on your own, then so be it.
Please note this is single accommodation only and not suitable for couples.
My place is a haven of peace, tranquility and positive vibrations. I intend to keep it that way and would expect my guests to have similar values.
Free spirited woman with a love of nature and the sea. Enjoy meeting like minded people who relish life's journey and the learnings it provides along the way. My home is my temple. It is a place of peace, beauty and serenity. I am currently developing my garden and enjoying every minute of it. Love intelligent conversations, the sea - in it and on it, good musicians (especially jazz, blues, chill-out) . I work from home so usually available to introduce you to the Bay of Islands, show you around if you want and share a home cooked meal (I am an excellent cook).
