We;ll stock the fridge with your breakfast choices - and perhaps some goodies too! There is also a washer and dryer to catch up on your travel washing if you wish. Experience the 'real NZ' life in the country; sheep in the fields, alpacas over the road, pick fruit from the trees, herbs from the garden and enjoy the best of locally produced food. Finished in high quality comfort, with top quality linens and towels, shampoo and shower necessities. All you have to do is just walk in and relax. Quiet, comfortable, private and very spacious at 780 sq feet, with amazing night time skies, complete with Milky Way and Southern Cross highly visible, due to low surround lighting. Good off street parking, and room for a trailer behind the gate, and in a safe and beautiful street. Close to one of the Waikato's best golf courses, and 5 minutes drive to Hampton Downs motorsport park. Equidistant to Hamilton and Auckland . Ideally positioned to visit the wild west coast beaches of Raglan, or the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula. Or walk in the kauri groves of the beautiful Hakarimata Ranges, or visit the world-acclaimed Whangamarino Wetland A great place to pause at the start or end of your holiday, before your flight home- motorway all the way to Auckland airport, less than one hour's drive. We provide a country style breakfast for you to prepare as you want it, and eat at your leisure in your own private apartment. There are restaurants less than 5 minute's drive away.More

Interaction with guests
We''ll arrange it so you can check in when it suits you (after 3pm - although we can also be flexible).....so you are not under any time pressure. We live on the property in the main house, which is entirely separate. We have two dogs (retired guide dogs for the blind) but they are well gated away from the guest area...although they are always available for patting! If you want information on the area or highlights to visit, we've got a range of information

This apartment is just perfect and all we wanted. Its close to Hampton Downs race track as well as a quick commute to Hamilton. Te Kauwhata is a quiet rural town and the Candle makers cottage is the perfect quiet and comfortable retreat. We stayed...More
