Lo spazio
Te Papa eco cottage is a unique place to relax, unwind and watch the natural world criuse past. It is a large one room cottage, built out of recycled materials, lots of rustic charm, beautifully furnished with antique chairs by a cosy wood fire, original art and a luxurious King size bed, with views over the Waikato River and the Onewhero ranges.
The cottage is off the grid, but has enough power obtained through solar energy to run lights, a fridge and ports to charge your devices [good cell phone coverage for internet connection but no independant link] Cooking is done on a gas hob [no oven] and the kitchen is kitted out with high quality utensils and all your basic cooking needs. There is also a BBQ for out door cooking.
After a hard day relaxing, you can enjoy a hot shower in the bathroom or a soak in the outdoor bath with views over the river and the surrounding farm land. The bath, with hot running water is set amongst the reeds on the hillside. Facing the sunset and with the moon rising behind it is the perfect way to greet the evening.
When you arrive, (check in 2pm, checkout 11am) we shall meet you at our farm house and show you to the cottage. We have a 4 wheel drive vehicle for guest to drive themselves the 3.5km farm track to the cottage [or we can drive you if you prefer].
You can explore the farm or brave our home made mountain bike track through our 3 acre native bush block. Walk through the new wetland or try your hand at catching the native delicacy, whitebait, when in season [August to November, we have nets for hire].
Being only 55km from Auckland International airport means Te Papa Eco cottage is the perfect place to arrive or depart from. Instantly, you are in real New Zealand, surrounded by open spaces, a river at your feet and stars above.

Accesso per gli ospiti
The Eco cottage is very private, set on a hill at the back of our 500 acre farm. Guests will have freedom to roam the farm, bush, wetlands and river.
Horses are welcome.
We will lend you our 4wheel drive to drive the 3.5km farm road up to the cottage, or drive you ourselves if you prefer.

Altre cose da tenere a mente
Good cell phone reception to create wifi hotspot but no independent internet.
Please do your own dishes and put them away.
Horses are welcome and can be grazed overnight. There are great riding opportunities around the farm with log jumps at regular intervals.
You are staying on a farm, above a river, amongst nature, there will be insects.

Waiuku, Auckland, Nuova Zelanda

Te Papa Eco Cottage overlooks the first part of an ambitious rejuvenation project that aims to revive the Whitebait spawning habitat and the nesting areas for the endangered Matuku and Matata [Bittern and Fern bird]. With the help of the Waikato River Authority [Tainui], we have cleared a two hectre island of exotic weeds, reformed spawning ponds and replanted native flora. We are now doing the same for kilometres of streams bordering our farm.
There is also a private boat ramp if you wish to bring a boat.
Te Papa is 15mins from Waiuku, the gate way to the beautiful Awhitu peninsular, the historic Manukua heads light house and Kariotahi beach [a wild black sand beach on the west coast]. Trout fishing can be arranged on our dune lake nearby [BYO gear]. Several high quality restaurants and cafe's within 10/20 minutes drive.
Local massage therapy is available on request at the cottage.
