Waiata Cottage - Oponae

The ultimate combination of stars, hills, bush and river

What makes this bach so special is not all of the amazing modern appliances and gadgets that have overtaken our lives but the absolute lack of them! Located in Oponae, thirty minutes from Opotiki, in the Waioeka Gorge, Waiata Cottage oozes blissful relaxation and the chance to leave todays hectic life behind, if only for a few days.

Please be aware there is no internet or mobile coverage at this property.

Sitting snugly above the Waioeka River, this two bedroom, one bathroom cottage has views of hills, bush, river and farmland. It is situated on a large, flat, fenced area and has a lovely porch on both sides of the home so you can escape or find the sun anytime of the day.

At night the stars are almost at your fingertips and so bright that time will pass you by well into the evening.

Chooks and sheep and deer are all in close proximity and are a feature of the property. As such, the owners have stated there is strictly no hunting and please do not bring your pets.

If you wish to you can explore the gorge area, by water, by bike, by foot, and by car. Believe it or not, theres a caf only ten minutes away if you cant do without your morning barista fix! Remember to pack your fishing rod to spend some quality time fishing for that elusive trout (licence required).

Theres a fire in the lounge, for those colder nights and sky TV if the weather turns nasty.

Theres even a long drop outside for the adventurous!

You may have the option of tenting at the property. Please enquire with Bush To Bay Holiday Stays.
