Capeview Cottage
Reviewed 7 September 2008

We spent one night at this property in August 2008.
We found it via the official NZ tourist website and faound to be the only place offering a minimum standard of accomodation between Tauranga and Gisborne, on the Pacific Highway No. 2.
We were pleased to find a nice and confortable two King bedrooms cottage ( just one cottage, yes, even if the name of the property mentions Cottages ).
The place is peaceful and very private even though just a stone throw from the hosts' house. It is located on a high area rich of Kiwi orchards, just a couple of Kms from Opotiki: the view towards the East Cape is just amazing.
Katleen, the proprietor, is a nice host and she make us feel like if we were at home.
Everything is available in the nice cottage: TV, stereo, large kitchen with fridge, large bathroom, lounge area, ....
The beds are generous kings on the second floor.
A nice patio with barbecue, table and chairs is accesible from the living room.
All the necessary amenities were at their place.
The morning after we had a good continental breakfast prepared by Kathleen.
We believe this is the best choice in the area and would certainly go back if in the area again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A luxury cottage in the country with fantastic views of countryside, sea and the East Cape Mountains. Quiet and secluded its the ideal getaway, but with all the comforts of home including SKY TV, Free Wi-Fi and Coffee Machine. Two identical double bedrooms upstairs with open plan living downstairs, full kitchen and laundry facilities means it an ideal place for longer stays. Outside is your own garden, lawn, bar-b-que area and private access. With very little light pollution this is a great spot for star gazing at night, or during the daylight hours taking on the challenges of the nearby Motu Bike or perhaps a visit by launch to White Island an active Volcano 50km off-shore. Alternatively laze on the lawn, read a book or just lay-back and listen to the 25+ different bird varieties in our area. Please book early for the summer. To get to Capeview Cottage, drive to Opotiki. Its a small town and you should have no trouble finding 'St John's Street' - Opotiki College, SPCA, St Johns Church and Caltex Opotiki are all located in this street. Head North on St Johns until you get to the round-about with directions for Te Kaha and SH35. ONE kilometre after the round-about is Gows Road on the right and a BIG blue Capeview Cottage sign. Turn right into Gows, follow this road for 3 Km, up the hill until you get to Tablelands/Walkers Road intersection where they'll be another 'Capeview' sign. Turn right into Tablelands Rd and 200 metres on the left is another Capeview sign pointing you down through the orchard to the cottage. ... more   less
