Wow, what a wonderful stay! Such a beautiful home and in such a peaceful location, especially with Rocky Bay just down the road.This has been a very pleasant experience/honeymoon/baby free weekend.
Thank you Waiheke Escapes for making the booking and stay so easy. You were wonderful and we will be telling our friends and family about this place and maybe next time we will bring our little girl.

My partner and I had a wonderful stay at Atahu Cottage. The welcoming feel made us feel like we were staying in a home, not just a house.

'Atahu Cottage was magic. A perfect place for a peaceful weekend away. Even though we had a lot of rain the cottage was still quite light & bright and with the open fire and a great kitchen to cook in you could still relax and enjoy it. We loved the location, very easy to get to everything, the shops, Rocky Bay, Whakanewha Park for a nice bush walk and close to the vehicular ferry too. Very easy to communicate with Waiheke Escapes and a nice touch having the fire set for us before we got there. Thanks very much. We would definitely recommend it to future customers.'

Property Description

Set over two levels with plenty of off street-parking, this stunning one-bedroom, one-bathroom home with tranquil bush surrounds gives you all the living space of a three- bedroom home but is custom made for couples.

A light-filled, vaulted living area offers many options for relaxation. This welcoming and cosy space adjoins the well-stocked kitchen that could inspire any chef.

Curl up on the couch with Netflix in front of the open fire in winter. Open the bi-fold doors to the bush views in summer while stretching out on the window seat to soak in the ambience of the surrounding area - quality time for two awaits.

A beautifully renovated bathroom, complete with separate shower and elegant bath, is also located on this floor together with a separate washing machine and dryer.

Upstairs, the master bedroom retreat beckons with its fabulous lounge area overlooking the main living area below. Sitting in what feels like a glass tree house, one may find the inspiration to write or paint in this place of stillness and quiet reflection. A work station is also located here.

Open the upstairs balcony doors to enjoy the sun and listen to the birdsong of the local native tuis. On a clear night, the room is illuminated with moonlight through the roof skylight. This area then flows through to the serene master bedroom with queen bed, complete with an electric blanket for those cold winter evenings, and views to the bush and the sunrises that paint the sky with pinks and oranges.

There are many beautiful bush walks in this area as well as the locals’ café at Rocky Bay Hall just five minutes down the road which is open on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Whakanewha Regional Park is a 15-minute walk through lush native bush and is perfect for picnics, watching the shore birds and enjoying the tidal flows. This is a lovely beach to swim at during high tide.

There are no shops at Ōmiha/Rocky Bay however the closest supermarket is a five-minute drive and there are regular buses.

Atahu Cottage is not suitable for toddlers, however it is baby friendly and portacots can be rented.

PLEASE NOTE: An exit cleaning fee of $95 applies to each stay. All linen and towels are supplied but please bring your own beach towels.

Minimum stays: Seven nights between mid-December and mid-January, two nights all other times and three nights for public holiday weekends. There is an option to accommodate an extra guest for an additional fee. A security deposit of $300 is charged to your credit card seven days prior to the booking and refunded the week following your booking.
