Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
We are delighted to invite you to come and enjoy Once & Floral Cottage. We're sure you will appreciate the peaceful rural setting and native birdsong. Less than 1 hour from the Auckland city. This is a private whole dwelling where you can truly wind down and relax... but don't worry, just because you're in the country it doesn't mean there isn't excellent WIFI & Sky TV.

Enjoy an outdoor bath under the stars and then cuddle up in front of a warm fire. The perfect peaceful and romantic escape!

The space
The cottage shares a picturesque 3 acres with the hosts, however there is plenty of privacy and a wonderful rural outlook.

The master bedroom (with queen bed) is located inside the main living area. The second bedroom (with double bed) is accessed via the large covered deck area. Please note: you have to go outside to access this room.

Now with additional fold up single bed supplied. Just in case the kids need to sleep inside with mum and dad.

Off street parking for 2/4 vehicles. Fantastic wood fireplace keeps the whole house toasty in winter (wood and kindling etc supplied). The kitchen has a fridge, cutlery, plates, glasses, cups, serve-wear, pots & pans, toaster, kettle etc. Tea, milk and coffee (including plunger coffee) will be supplied.

Enjoy a bath under the stars!
