Room with Breakfast -
Rawhiti is moari meaning «The place of the sunrise». Many glorious sunrises have been enjoyed from the Rawhiti room. As the sun comes up behind the hills and casts a beautiful light over land and sea. It is also a perfect room for that «sleep in» if you prefer.
A pleasant walk along this grass path takes you to the cottage and our Rawhiti room. It is 50 metres from the main house.
Enter the cottage through this living/dining room which is shared with one other room. The Matakitaki room. There is a fridge, mini bar, and tea/coffee making facilites in this room. Enjoy the extensive view from the dining table and sofa.
A large very comfortable king size bed is in the Rawhiti room, with large feather pillows, a duvets and cotton bedding, a restful night is assured. Wake to a glorious view over the sea and the sun coming up over the Black Jack hill.
From the terrace, you can see the goats playing together, the horses and calves grazing in the paddocks, pheasants in the Olive grove and the Pacific Ocean with all its moods.
The bathroom has a bath with a shower above it. Whilst on holiday you will have time for a relaxing bath. Beach towels, hot water bottles and hairdryer are also in the cupboard.
A nightlight is in the bathroom for your convience.
Very funny goats — Kevin, Paula and Libby — 3.04.2005
What a lot of laughs we had watching the goats playing on the old trough in the paddock. Up and down and around they ran for hours. This is really a beautiful place for both young and old. Thankyou for making our family so welcome.
