Country hide away cottage in a picturesque stunning rural area.

Family-friendly cottage in Hangaroa
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.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include a shower and hairdryers. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

Great place, amazing hosts & relaxed holiday!
Wish we had a few more days to stay - We had an awesome Christmas break with family and friends and the farm stay ( first time) at Sally’s was a perfect spot to unwind! Kids had a great time with the puppies ! Thank you Sally for letting us stay at yours, very welcoming & a comfortable stay! Your gluten free brownies were such a hit!!

5/5 Excellent

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
