A Romantic Cottage Retreat in the Bay of Islands
The self-catering solar powered studio is completely
secluded and surrounded by the 5 acre sub-tropical gardens. It
spills onto a private sun-deck which wraps around the cottage
giving stunning river views. The romantic alfresco claw foot
bath, perched over the river is the perfect place to relax and
watch the water slip by.
Magic Cottage has been designed as an intimate
and cosy romantic retreat – ideal for honeymoon couples
or for those who simply wish to escape the stress of daily life.
