Sleeping Under the Stars
Gaze across the river or up at the stars from the deck of our beautiful white canvas safari-style tent set on a permanent timber floor; luxuriate in the super king bed with cosy linen, feather duvets and blankets; enjoy the comfy furniture and perfectly appointed vintage styled little kitchen and bathroom with its hot running water and steaming shower; and wake up to the sun rising over the river, the sound of birds and the gentle splash of fish in the river.
The Tariff:
$280-$350/night (including GST) for 2 people.
Our beautiful 'Glamping' Site is designed exclusively for one couple and provides a unique romantic retreat. We can also accommodate a family with the addition of single beds in the main tent, or a separate tent in the grounds (price on application).

Magic Cottage is a beautiful, romantic and secluded riverside retreat - the ultimate getaway or romantic escape. We enjoyed total privacy in this wonderful studio cottage perched on the banks of the Takou River.

Surrounded by 5 acres of beautiful subtropical gardens, the cottage spills onto a deck featuring an antique claw foot bath overlooking the river, the perfect place to relax, gaze at the stars or watch the abundant birdlife as the river slips by. Peace seclusion and tranquility surround Magic Cottage. With its secluded swimming, sub-tropical gardens, private jetty and boat house, fishing, kayaks, and the beautiful sandy beach at Takou Bay a short paddle downstream, why would we venture any further?

Ian and Anna have a passion for the environment and have planted over 15,000 native trees and converted the 150 acre property to certified organic status. They have done their utmost to make the property and your stay as sustainable as possible, without compromising on comfort or luxury. Centrally located to explore the wider Bay of Islands and Far North's attractions, Magic Cottage is the perfect retreat hidden away from the hustle and bustle of major tourist towns.
