Country stay in rural Kaipara. Hosted self contained cottage or home stay/B&B style accommodation. Water views over the Otamatea River; Part of the Kaipara Harbour. Located just 90minutes north of Auckland city. Amazing rural countryside with bush and water views; come and discover a perfect escape ...

It's a short bushwalk to the water's edge and the opportunity to kayak around the bays. There is an all tide boat ramp less than a minute down the road for those who would like to fish the Kaipara Harbour; fresh snapper, flounder and scallops.

We could be a great stop off to break your journey north or vice versa. Or stay with us whilst travelling the twin coast discovery route. Powai accommodation is close to Wellsford, Mangawhai and Matakohe for the famous Kauri Museum

We stayed for 2 nights in Autumn. It was the perfect spot for quiet relaxation. Breakfast basket was delicious. All the amenities provided added some luxury to the cottage. Although located near the owners property, there was privacy but also room to wander and explore. We borrowed the owner's kayak and ventured out for some marine exploring, and Cathy and...

Second time for us at Powai Cottage/ Lodge and couldn't wait to get back to a place where we feel enveloped by care in a tropical paradise. The views over the Kaipara harbour are stunning - changing with the light every hour of the day. Attention to detail is Cathy and Johns strength as well as being so welcoming and...

About the neighbourhood
Hidden spot surrounded by water views and New Zealand native bush.
Slightly off the beaten track but worth while to stay in tranquil, native surroundings. This is hosted style accommodation so whilst we know you need your privacy we are here for assisting with extra details or something you have forgotten. Kayaks available for those who enjoy a leisurely kayak around the bays. Land fishing for snapper, tides permitting.
Pre order sharing platter if you don't wont to drive or cook. Kaipara harbour (the largest in the Southern hemisphere) was used for kauri logging and historically settled by missionaries.
Car advised
