Additional Location Information

Perched on the banks of the peaceful Takou River, just a short paddle downstream to Takou Bay, Magic Cottage is the perfect romantic retreat. The secluded cottage is absolute water front and is set in 5 acres of sub-tropical gardens, surrounded by 150 acres of organic pasture and native bush.

Guests enjoy secluded swimming, 150 acres of organic farmland with marked walks, sub-tropical gardens, private jetty, fishing, kayaks, and access to the beautiful deserted sandy beaches at Takou Bay. And if this isn't enough, be totally pampered in the privacy of Magic Cottage with our newly introduced relaxation and rejuvenation services. Our experienced therapist offers a range of heavenly massage and beauty therapy treatments.

Just 20 minutes from Kerikeri town and 20 minutes from Bay of Islands Airport, Magic Cottage is centrally located to explore the wider Bay of Islands and Far North, yet hidden away from the hustle and bustle amid 150 acres of organic pasture, native bush and river frontage. Enjoy the flourishing birdlife; wander enchanted gardens and riverside walks; paddle to Takou Bay; relax, refresh and romance in the claw foot bath – or bask in the bliss of doing absolutely nothing.
