Set over 2 levels with plenty of off street parking for yourselves and any visitors, this stunning one bedroom, one bathroom home gives you all the living space of a 3 bedroom home but is custom made for couples. A stunning light filled vaulted living area that offers you all sorts of options for relaxation, flows off the well stocked kitchen that could inspire any chef. A wonderful open fire to curl up in front of over winter evenings is the centrepiece and with Netflix available, your cosy evenings in are complete. In summer, open the bi-fold windows to the lush bush view while stretching out on the window seat to soak in the ambiance of the surrounding area - quality time for two awaits.
A beautifully renovated bathroom, complete with separate shower and lovely large welcoming bath are also located on this floor together with a separate washing machine and dryer.
Upstairs is the master bedroom retreat complete with its own fabulous lounge area that overlooks the main living area below. Sitting in what feels like a glass tree house, one may find the artist is inspired to paint or the writer flows with creative expression. It is a place of stillness and quiet reflection. In this area you will also find a work station, complete with printer aided by the unlimited Wi-fi. Open the balcony doors in this beautiful suntrap and listen to the birdsong of the local native Tui's that have made their home here. On a clear night the room is illuminated with moonlight through the roof skylight. This area then flows through to the lovely large 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.
Atahu Cottage is not suitable for toddlers, however it is baby friendly and portacots can be rented on the island through Waiheke Nannies to save transporting them.
PLEASE NOTE: An exit cleaning fee of $95 applies to each stay. All linen and towels are supplied. Minimum stays: 7 nights between mid December and mid January, 3 nights holiday weekends and 2 nights all other times.
“The Cottage was wonderful! Decorated beautifully and very comfortable. We enjoyed being there and found it convenient to most of the island. The only drawback: bedroom is upstairs and bathroom is downstairs. Can be challenging for middle-of-the-night trips. However, there is lighting (motion detecting) to help deal with that issue. Great spot to relax.”
Amazing cottage, great location!
Away from the town centre, this place is a peaceful piece of paradise. Modern, warm place, with a great cafe and winery just down the road. Very helpful and welcoming property manager made the stay all that much better. Would definitely go back, reasonably priced.
"A beautiful home in a stunning bush setting that although designed for a couple, has the room and facilities of a full sized house.
Very clean and comfortable – highly recommended getaway"
"Beautiful property in an extremely peaceful and private location. We would come back".
"Wonderful location for a quiet, private tree-surrounded retreat. Perfect for a warm, cosy and comfortable break. With the well-appointed kitchen and Netflix available, there really isn't any need to leave the cottage... except to explore the island's and sample the restaurants and wineries. Waiheke Escapes made check-in super easy!"
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.
Lovely spacious light filled house in a quiet bush location exactly as described. We made a lot of use of the great kitchen facilities.
