Eco Cottage - rural bush retreat in Kapiti

Located just 55 minutes drive north of Wellington is the stunning Reikorangi Valley.

A bush-clad eco-cottage at the edge of the Tararua Forest, with beautiful views, sounds of birdlife and the relaxing flow of the Ngatiawa River nearby. This new two bedroom off-grid cottage is designed to work with nature and fitted with a heartfelt nod to days gone by.

The eco-cottage offers on-site bush and farm walks, a splash in the river, hill climbs to views of Kapiti Island and the South Island, nighttime star gazing, or visits to glow worms.

Sink into the sofa with wine in hand, the wood burner roaring, or cast your favorite online series. Snuggle in a home-spun, home-knitted rug from sheep off the farm, or sit by the outdoor fire pit, roast marshmallows and watch the sunset.

There’s lots to do locally. Waikanae is within 15 minutes’ drive, with its sandy beaches and well-regarded restaurants, bakery and pubs.

Truly innovative, this retreat raises the bar for unique luxury eco-accommodation in New Zealand.
