Our first property in NEW ZEALAND! This must be the perfect Honeymoon location - a secluded traditional cottage with complete privacy, views across plains to the mountains and a bath under the stars! Days out include great wine, great beaches, and fantastic 'Lord of the Rings' scenery.
Step back in time and experience the romance of life a hundred years ago here on the Wairarapa Plains. We toured both islands of New Zealand and saw all areas...and this is about the best accommodation you'll find. The cottage sits overlooking a private lagoon amongst a working sheep and beef farm. It is entirely off-grid but completely comfortable - in fact of our 6 month world-tour of all continents it was our favourite place to stay.
There are stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains, hills and Wairarapa plains. Built of entirely recycled materials the cottage is home to many antique heirlooms. One of the many highlights of this unique little cottage is being able to bathe outside under a myriad of stars! See extra photos of this amazing New Zealand cottage.

If you aim to travel between the North and South Islands of New Zealand by motorhome/ car you'll find this cottage is perfectly situated just off the traditional route between Auckland and Wellington (ie, so you'd have been passing here in any case!).
Stay where you are and enjoy the beautiful scenery! When we stayed we ended up doubling the length of the stay after arrival, and simply chilling out after the big rush around the rest of the islands!
This must be one of our 'greenest' properties - entirely off-grid!
'It was magnificent coming from the other side of the world to a tiny little cottage like this, congratulations on creating this “little heaven on earth”.
