The rammed earth and timber cottage (to the left in the first main image) is on two levels and there is an adjoining tower with bunk beds, the hosts house is situated next door. The two houses are set within a lush park like garden of native plants, ponds and walkways which you are welcome to explore.The cottage features many hand crafted details such as stained glass windows, timber joinery, original artwork and collections of books. There is a self-contained kitchen, though your host Carol can provide all meals at an additional charge if arranged prior to your stay. Carol is also happy to offer recommendations to local restaurants, suggest easy sightseeing day trips, provide local information and offer ideas of favorite beaches to visit close by. The property is located in a central part of Northland in the North Island of New Zealand making it the ideal base for day excursions to the Bay of Islands, The Waipoua Forest to see Tane Mahuta “Lord of the Forest"or the beaches and bays of the east coast of Northland. The local city of Whangarei is a 20 minute drive away and the world renowned Tutukaka marina is also within easy driving distance. Though, the cottage is a true gem and once you arrive you may decide there is no reason to venture further than the extensive garden. Ribbonwood cottage has been a much loved retreat for Carol’s extended family for more than a decade. Other guests have found their way here by word of mouth and only recently has the cottage been advertised, so this is a rare opportunity to experience a unique and tranquil home.
