Luxury B&B and farm stay near Waitomo Caves

If you’re looking for a romantic luxury cottage near Waitomo & Otorohanga, then Kamahi Cottage is perfect.

Enjoy a secluded getaway in your own private self-contained cottage. It’s set in a beautiful country garden with stunning hilltop views over the river valley and mountains to the west. Take time out, soak up the scenery and relax in our large garden full of native and exotic plants and birds.

Freshly prepared, homemade gourmet food is all part of your Kamahi Cottage experience. (Full breakfasts – continental + cooked options are included in the rates). If you’d like to end your day with dinner delivered to the cottage, or you have a special occasion to celebrate, we can prepare a 2 or 3-course dinner complemented with fine New Zealand wines. Please advise us early to avoid disappointment. (Extra charges apply for dinners).

Kamahi Cottage is off the beaten track, but close to the world-famous Waitomo Caves and just a few hours from Auckland, Hamilton, Taupo and Rotorua. (We’re 30 minutes from Waitomo and 15 minutes from Otorohanga.) Stay a night for a treat, plan a weekend escape or stay longer to relax, unwind and discover our North King Country attractions – everything from caves and beautiful rural landscapes to dramatic West Coast beaches.

There’s so much to do in the Waitomo and Otorohanga area – Black Water Rafting, cave abseiling (rappelling), glowworm cave tours, a visit to the Otorohanga Kiwi House wildlife & conservation centre, beautiful walking trails and black iron-sand beaches, trout fishing, golf, farm and garden tours.

If you have any questions at all, please contact us.
