“WOW, we wish we could live here!! The home is stunningly done, all the little things thought of (luxury lotions and body wash etc, ladies!), with a stunning view of the land. Ava could not be a sweeter dog, helping with us missing our own pup at home! Cherie was such a gracious and wonderful host, even offering us to come along to a glow worm kayak tour at Waitomo nearby, on her birthday no less! We loved seeing the cows, chickens, hearing her parrots, and all of the other wildlife in the backyard. So relaxing to sit in the hot tub on the deck, eat dinner under the stars, or chill in the recliners for a movie night. This spot is so beautiful and truly a treasure, if you like getting away from it all in a gorgeous landscape and beautiful/modern home, book now! Thanks for everything Cherie!”
Welcome to Twin Kauri Retreat where we think our 1 acre paradise is worth sharing with others. Twin Kauri Retreat is named after the two large Kauri trees that stand at the entrance of the driveway. Nestled among the fruit trees our brand new fully furnished Retreat is totally independent from main house, with own large deck. Linen and towels provided. Only 15 minutes drive to the Tauranga City and 5 minutes to Omokoroa Beach and Supermarket.
“Michelle is a fantastic host, very friendly and relaxed. The cottage is ideal for a couple. Very clean, tidy, warm and the bed was comfortable. Lovely setting amongst the fruit trees, was nice to wake to the sound of birds.”
When you lie in bed in our Little Cottage you can see the sea. The cottage is little, just a bedroom and bathroom, but the location is idyllic and you have your own private verandah where you can relax and watch the sunrise and sunset. There are tea and coffee facilities and a fridge and laundry for guest use but there is no kitchen. This is a lovely quiet spot to rest for a night or two on your journey. It is close to Tauranga and Katikati and all that the beautiful Bay of Plenty has to offer.
“Anne was a superhost indeed! Her little cottage and dreamy garden, as well as the lush, green surrounding area is good for anyone's soul! Anne was willing to pick me up from the bus stop late at night and even offered driving me into town the next day to pick up my rental car. The cottage was well equipped with everything I needed. I especially appreciated the soft, comfy towels in the bathroom. Friendly, generous and relaxed, Anne lived up to what is said about New Zealanders in general and welcomed me warmly into her home. Thank you Anne, Geoffrey and Ayla for a beautiful time, Stephanie”
