Magic Cottages at Takou River

A weekend of romance and quiet open space Magic Cottages Takou River…

The Magic Cottages Takou River are near Kerikeri in the Bay of Islands. This peaceful destination is great for a weekend away with a friend or partner. There are a number of different rooms to choose from but you leave wanting to try the next one.


Each room has its own outside bath tub one one or big enough to share. When we visited we were lucky enough to see a calf the next day after being born which topped off our little adventure weekend. Head out in the day to the nearby wineries. We tried two just because we like wine and cheese. The ones we visited in the area were Marsden Estate and Ake Ake Vineyard. Highly recommend Marsden the lunch menu was so delicious. We also had dinner at a few Restaurants in the area but the only one I wold recommend would be Food at Wharepuke.


The best part of the trip by far was the spa package with hot tub placed on the properties river. We didn’t get to see the glow worms as we wanted to go and eat. Next time we will make sure to have food in the room so we don’t miss out. Whether you want to adventure around Kerikeri or stay just at the accommodation there is enough to keep you busy as they have fishing on the property, books and canoes which are free to use on your stay.


Even your partner will love the weekend away. It’s a short drive from Auckland so isn’t to stressful if you want to leave after work on a Friday. The property has multiple mini houses which are split off enough from the rest of the accomadation. This means you can relax with your partner and be able to be one with nature.
