The Heron's Nest

Beautiful Ohiwa Harbour

The Heron's nest is a small stand-alone cottage in a private garden setting on the edge of Ohiwa Harbour. This part of Ohiwa Harbour is West facing so sunsets are awesome. The layout is open plan, and there is a small kitchen. There is a small deck that overlooks a wetland area which is a feature of the garden. The owners home is on the same property, but the site and garden are spacious enough to ensure privacy. There is a covered outdoor area which connects the cottage with the separate room that has the laundry, toilet and shower. The outdoor area is a great place for a BBQ and you can use the gas one provided or you can use the one that has a woodfire under it....or use both. There is a good stack of firewood ready for use. Roasting marshmallows would make a good evening activity here. This property would be a great place for a person or couple just to chill out, read a book, or explore the Ohiwa Harbour. Central to Whakatane and Opotiki you could visit both towns easily.
