Slice of Heaven Cottage

Adults-only cottage in Whakamarama
Relax away from the bustle and busyness of the city and enjoy a break in a quiet rural environment surrounded by native bush and be lulled by the nearby river and bird song. Enjoy the smell of timber within our architecturally designed cottage with high wooden ceilings, wood paneled walls, wooden stairs and kitchen and hand crafted furniture.

Recharge with a book or a walk on our property or on nearby bushwalks, or explore all that Tauranga and the Western Bay of Plenty has to offer. Bethlehem Town Centre is 15 minutes away, Omokoroa, 15 minutes, Katikati 25 minutes, Tauranga 25 minutes and Mt Maunganui with its world famous beach is a 30 minute drive away.

Fully self-contained cottage with mezzanine sleeping loft with double bed, full kitchen with oven, gas hob and fridge, bathroom with shower and enjoy a loo with a view. A pullout sofa bed in the lounge creates a double bed, dining facility for up to four, a pellet fire for winter and WIFI.

Please note there is no mobile phone reception at the cottage.

Please also note that stair access to the mezzanine is steep – it’s an alternating tread so ones gait is the same as a normal stair but it can catch people by surprise – the pullout sofa bed in the lounge is available for those who are unable to access the stairs.

We try and be as self- sufficient and sustainable as possible and run our slice of heaven along organic lines, considering the impact our actions have upon the environment. Hence you will find we use environmentally and people safe products for cleaning in the cottage (and our home), and we try to buy Fair Trade products that support those who live in third world nations. We don’t get it right all the time – we are learning as we go and enjoy talking with others about their journey towards a similar lifestyle. Our cottage is smoke, vaping and drug free.

Ideal as a getaway for a couple, it does have a pullout sofa double bed so while two is comfortable, four would experience tiny home living.

Surrounded by farmland with views of native bush and in close proximity to a stream, there are multiple farm animals on surrounding properties visible from the drive: cows, sheep, goats, alpacas. Some distant animal noises at night can be expected (mooing etc) .
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and an iron/ironing board. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include baths or showers.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely place to stay
Wish we could stay longer

5/5 Excellent

Love our time here! So cozy and peaceful.

4/5 Good

A lovely hideaway and base to visit the Bay of Plenty
We had a nice stay in Whakamarama. The cottage was a lovely hideaway and it was great location to visit the sights in the Bay of Plenty. The house had everything you could need, the wifi was good and we had no problems with connectivity. I would recommend that visitors bring slippers for the winter as the fire warms up the house brilliantly but the floors are cool. We found the mattress on the bed very uncomfortable and the show pressure was very low. With these upgraded the house would be perfect.

4/5 Good

Slice of Heaven Cabin Review
Very snug warm settings and aesthetic. The fireplace was incredible and overall very relaxing and welcoming. It would have been nice to know that there was no phone coverage there but aside from that, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

5/5 Excellent
