Perched on the banks of the Takou River, with stunning views across the water, this secluded studio has been carefully designed as the perfect romantic escape. Offering intimacy and barefoot luxury, Magic Cottage is ideal for romantic escapes, honeymoon or babymoon couples or those simply wishing to escape the stress of daily life.
Hidden beneath ancient Pohutukawa trees, looking straight over the river, this self-catering studio is completely private, hidden from view and surrounded by the 5 acre sub-tropical gardens. Try your luck and throw a fishing line over the edge of your private sun-deck which wraps around the cottage giving stunning water views. The romantic alfresco claw-foot bath on your sun-deck is the perfect place to relax and watch the water slip by, or wonder at the night sky.
Gaze across the river or up at the stars; luxuriate in the super king bed with cosy linen, feather duvets and blankets; snuggle into the comfy window seat with a book; enjoy the perfectly appointed little kitchen and bathroom with eco-friendly toiletries; and wake up to the sun rising over the water, the sound of birds and the gentle splash of fish in the river.
A beautiful window seat, luxurious super-king bed, cotton linen, feather pillows and duvet, cosy throws, blankets and bathrobes, bath and beach towels together with complimentary toiletries, fresh flowers, books and magazines complete your stay.
The Cottage sleeps 2. It has an en suite shower room in addition to the beautiful out-door bath overlooking the river and fully plumbed into the hot water, and is equipped for self-catering including a gas bbq on the deck; indoor and outdoor tables and chairs; sun loungers, a small kitchen area with fridge, gas oven and hob, crockery, glasses, cutlery and cooking utensils.
