Turehu Cottage

Turehu Cottage ('fairy folk') is affectionately called the little cottage and inherits its name from the mythical fairy people of the local area. Surrounded by an explosion of colour and scent from its lavish gardens, this cottage has an abundance of warmth and charm.

Turehu Cottage offers beautifully appointed studio style accommodation with the added advantage of a conservatory that receives all day sun and has magnificent views. Step through the French doors from the main living area and you can see across the black sand dunes and out to sea in one direction, and back up the bush laden valley in the other.

Your cottage is the perfect place to curl up and read a book, or make use of the easel and paints and indulge the artist within. Turehu is is an ideal place for couples to sharinge a romantic break, or for two friends to relax and enjoy the spectacular beauty of the west coast.

Please note you will need to bring your own food and drink. Please print the directions so you can easily find your way.

There is a full sized brick wood fired barbecue outside the conservatory door. It has magnificent views out to sea and makes cooking outdoors a uniquely kiwi experience.


The conservatory is a lovely place to dine and offers stunning scenery to accompany your meal. Alternatively you may want to sit at the beautiful stone bench on the edge of the lawn.
