Don't be put off by winter - it's not usually cold here anyway but we have loads of firewood to keep you toasty warm and provide ambiance to make your stay super special. It's great fun and very easy to dig up Tuatuas on Ninety Mile Beach. Bring them home and boil them up - delicious with fresh bread and butter and a cold beer.

The road to the property winds down a picturesque landscape overlooking farm lands across the harbour to dazzling white silica sand and harbour and ocean views. Further north on your way to Cape Reinga turn left at Te Paki Stream and hire a boogie board for some dune boarding on the giant sand dunes. After you've been to the Cape wander back to Tapotupotu Beach for a dip in the crystal clear water or wander along the lovely sandy beach. Stop in at Waitiki Landing further south for an icecream and head to Spirits Bay if you have time and enjoy the seemingly endless sandy and shingle beach. If you don't have time continue south and stop at Te Kao store and I'd challenge you to try to finish one of their giant ice cream cones. If you've booked for a couple of nights there's still time to visit either 90 Mile Beach, Rarawa Beach or Henderson Bay. Grab a beer at NZ's northernmost pub at Houhora or sit down to fish and chips at Pukenui. All this within 40-60 minutes of Mother Jimmys Bach. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

Please discuss with Sally or Phil if the terms of check in/out and cancellation do not address you requirements. Interaction with GuestsWe, Sally and Phil are retired and live quietly in the house adjacent to the cottage, so are around for support most days, although summer sees us frequently spending time out on the water.

The NeighborhoodFrom Ruru Cottage you can walk to * The Gum Store Pub/ Restaurant. Open Weds-Sun. * The boat ramp and wharf. Fish from the wharf, sit and watch commercial and recreational boating activity. A good spot for a chat with locals and other visitors, or just admiring the view. * Lane Cove and the Dukes Nose.

We are happy to collect guests and drop them off at the end of their stay. Harbour tours and water taxi are available from Totara North and Whangaroa. Other Things to NoteThe owners workshop is attached to the cottage and may occasionally need to be accessed for very short periods. Other than guests being aware that this may occur, it should not impact on your stay as we endeavour to keep it to an absolute minimum. Mobile phone reception is available but depends on where you stand! Water is by rainwater collection from the roof and is therefore untreated. (This is common practise in rural NZ and is generally considered safe.) We supply filtered water in bottles from the house if required for drinking.
