We first visited Milestone Cottages years ago when the owners were building the earthbrick cottages and the gardens were all new. We loved the atmosphere of the gardens and the cottages and the small seaside town so much that it is always included in our return trips. Each time we come back we drive straight from the airport to the...

We wanted to get away during the winter months and found the Cottages on the way to the Bay of Islands. We both surf and this was ideal. It was close to 5 other surf beaches and we were stoked. We were looking for something unique and private and this was perfect. We stayed in the Gumdiggers and felt that...

Recently repainted, charming and stylish, with a verandah for wine o'clock and breakfast. The garden is worth a visit in its own right, but to wander through it on the way to and from...

Last stayed here 5 years ago and the place still is wonderful. We booked the schooner cottage which is the best if you have kids, as it has a separate room with two beds. Has a king bed in the main room, wonderful window seats and balcony with a sea view - although the trees are getting larger so the...

Quaint and unique cottages with style and decor reflecting different themes. We stayed in the GumDiggers Cottage which was made of earthbrick and displayed interesting kauri artefacts and photographs from gumdigging days. The cottage was appealing as it had a bay window which looked out over the beach with lots of cushions and rugs for a lovely afternoon relax. The...

“The Schooner cottage has the best view over the water but the others have lovely garden views.”

“The owners will tell you that the studio is 'small'. But it really is much better than adequate for a few nights stay. The cottages are bigger.”

“If you can afford it - go for the accomodation with views of the estuary.”
