About this cottage

Mahaanui Cottage is a fully furnished, self-contained, private, country cottage located in the beautiful Tiniroto, half way between Gisborne and Wairoa (approx. 50 minutes driving either way).

With everything you need for an enjoyable stay, the cottage is perfect for friends and families looking for a relaxing country break. Or active farm experience.

With 3 spacious bedrooms, it comfortably sleeps up to 8 people. And if needed, a double sofa-bed and extra single bed can be added in one of the lounges – to sleep an extra 3 people. Plus there's plenty of room for tents in the cottage garden!

The kitchen is well equipped and has basic food provisions such as flour, sugar, cooking oil, spices, tea and coffee but you will have to bring all your other food with you.

We encourage you to go walking over the 614 hectares of farmland during your stay, or venture over to the scenic Hangaroa River or Doneraille Park – both only minutes away.

So whether it be to walk, swim, kayak, fish, picnic, cycle or just relax with a book! We invite you to take some time to join us and enjoy the picturesque scenery, explore the farm and experience our country way of life.

    Outstanding hosts with peaceful accomadtion

    One of my best farm stays so far, peaceful accommodation with nature surrounding. I booked there for my birthday and it was just perfect, away from the crowd with stunning views. The hosts sally and Simon were very welcoming and really nice people, plus sally made a cake for me which was very kind of her. Definitely we all boys will be back soon. Highly recommend to everyone.

    Peaceful and cosy

    We had a lovely stay at this property. The cottage was cosy with 2 wood burners, plenty of games to play, a stereo, a well equipped kitchen and comfy beds. There are plenty of walks in the area, and the owner's dog at the nearby property was very friendly and joined us for one of them! Thank you

    It was Mint!

    Beautiful settings with a beautiful house. Owner was so very welcoming and kind. Would love to stay here for longer and explore the area in its entirety. The section was well fenced and the grounds well cared. Our 3 dogs, the kennel/run area could do with little weed eating just because of the thistles. Otherwise spectacular. Thank you

    Beautiful farm stay. The cottage has all modern conveniences including dishwasher and wifi.

    We were greeted with fresh scones with jam and cream when we arrived, there was also fresh flowers in each room. The cottage and gardens were absolutely lovely. We loved sitting on the deck overlooking the garden for our meals. Sally, Simon and their family were great hosts and went out of their way to show us about farm life and introduce our kids to all the animals. Awesome people, awesome place, awesome stay.

    Perfect escape

    The cottage exceeded my expectations and was the perfect place to escape for a few days. I appreciated all the information on the local area as well as the housekeeping requirements before departure. There was a lovely slice left for us to enjoy too. The peace and tranquility was exactly what I needed and I look forward to escaping again next year.

    Lovely escape!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Lovely setting with plenty to do or easy to relax and do nothing at all. Simon and sally are very kind and hospitable - we arrived to fresh cut flowers and lovely baking and Simon took us all to see the animals - a real highlight for the kids.
