Estuary Cottage - 10 Robinson Road, Whitianga

Estuary Cottage is the place to come to put your feet up, disconnect your cell phone and reconnect with yourself, your partner and the environment.  The Lockwood house was professionally built in 2002, and customised with European flair.  We are sure that you will feel right at home in this self-contained property on the banks of the river.

The spacious main living area has a vaulted ceiling, and is carpeted throughout.  White pine construction and large sliding windows lend the room a light and airy feel without losing any of the warmth that the peace and quiet of the location afford

Access to the upstairs bedroom is by means of a fold-down attic ladder, which gives the main area a greater feeling of space, while allowing the upstairs to operate as a self-contained area in which to relax.  The overlooking balcony integrates the upstairs with the downstairs giving the entire space a sense of community.

Off the main living area is the comfortably appointed kitchen, with terracotta tiling, breakfast bar and windows allowing plenty of natural light to filter in.  The breakfast bar works to separate this utility space from the main area, while still allowing easy line of sight and flow from the kitchen into the main living area.

The living room opens out through sliding windows onto the wooden deck, which overlooks the garden, reserve and river.  With a barbeque on-site, this is the ideal place to take your evening meals, watching the twilight come down over the hills and listening to the gentle sounds of the estuary birdlife.

The bathroom is setup for both baths and showers, with the white and blue motif carrying through from the rest of the house.  A warm space in which to take luxurious baths to soothe away the aches of active days hiking or kayaking, or just to wake up with a nice hot shower in the morning.

The main bedroom looks out over the deck toward the river - the ideal way to wake up to a relaxing day. With trees all around as dusk settles in, the dappled light filtering in through the windows is the perfect atmosphere for quiet romantic evenings in.

Estuary Cottage is a smoke free environment and currently has no facilities for pets.
