Luxury, self-contained Bed & Breakfast

We love sharing our beautiful hilltop farm location and built Kamahi Cottage as a stress-free getaway. If you’re planning a honeymoon, special celebration or just a peaceful retreat, the self-contained cottage is perfect.

When you stay at Kamahi Cottage you are the only guests. It’s peaceful and quiet with panoramic views of extinct volcanoes, rolling hills and green valleys. You’ll have total privacy, but are very welcome to share our hospitality in our home nearby.

Start your day with a full gourmet breakfast delivered to the cottage or served in our own dining room, whenever it suits you. And if you prefer a relaxed private evening, we’ll deliver dinner to the cottage.

Enjoy freshly picked flowers, home baking, freshly ground coffee, specialty teas, port and fruit schnapps distilled from our own orchard.

Sophisticated finishing touches and attention to detail make the spacious handcrafted cottage the perfect place to relax and unwind.

  • Free bookings for a wide range of Waitomo and Otorohanga activities

Why not stay a few days? Many of our guests wish they had booked a longer stay, because there’s so much to see and do in and around the Waitomo and Otorohanga districts (You’ll need at least two days to explore!).

Or, instead of driving every day to a new destination, make yourselves at home and use Kamahi Cottage as your central North Island base. It’s just over one hour’s drive to the Hobbiton film set and 2 hours to Rotorua and Taupo.
