The Heron's Nest

Beautiful Ohiwa Harbour

The Heron's Nest is a cosy stand-alone cottage nestled in a private garden setting on the edge of Ohiwa Harbour. The open plan cottage has all of the essentials for you to relax and enjoy an easy break away. A covered outdoor area connects the cottage to a separate laundry, toilet and shower. Enjoy views of a stunning wetland from the well appointed deck, while you soak in all that nature has to offer. In the evenings the west facing property enjoys majestic sunsets.

The outdoor area is a great place for a BBQ with the option of gas or wood. A good stack of firewood is ready for use and when the flames die down it's a perfect place to roast marshmallows. If escapism is what you are looking for this place is the perfect spot to do it. As a single or a couple you can sit back and soak in the relaxing atmosphere or get out and enjoy the surrounding area of Ohiwa Harbour. Central to Whakatane and Opotiki you could visit both towns easily.

The owners home is on the same property, but the cottage and garden are spacious enough to ensure privacy.
