Escape to the country! Our freshly renovated rural cottage has 360° views, three bedrooms, two spacious decks, and – coming soon – a spa pool from where you can watch the sunset and starry night sky.
The cottage is in Glen Murray, North Waikato, an hour south of Auckland and 45 minutes north of Hamilton. It takes 18 minutes to get from here to the Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, and one hour to get to Raglan (a popular day trip).
The kitchen is huge and well-equipped with a stove, oven, microwave, large fridge-freezer, toaster, kettle, and dishwasher. The living room has a comfy leather sofa and large TV, with freeview. There are boardgames and books, plus a USB drive with a selection of movies on it for rainy days. A heatpump will keep you warm in the winter and cool in summer. Two new bathrooms with showers (one is an en-suite).
Bedroom #1 has a king-size bed and the en-suite. Bedroom #2 has a queen-size bed plus a fold-out futon chair that becomes a single bed. Bedroom #3 has a sofa pulling out into a sturdy double bed. This room can be used as a second living room and throughfare to the back deck during the day, then a private bedroom at night.
The sheltered front porch has a BBQ, a comfortable hammock, and an outdoor dining area. The large back deck looks over the lake and has the spa pool (which as of February 2021 requires repairs). It’s a great place to watch the sunset. There is assorted outdoor furniture – beanbags, deckchairs, acapulco chairs – that you can move between areas as you like!
There is plenty of grassy space for kids to run around on, and you are welcome to explore the surrounding farmland and bush.
Undercover parking for two vehicles, and a large gravel turning bay where more can fit.
Please let us know if you would like to bring your dog or horse (or other pets). The cottage is on a working farm, so livestock must be taken into account.
