K Road Cottage, Panguru

K Road Cottage is situated on our farm almost at the end of Kowhitikaru Road, 5 kms from Panguru. 

We offer peaceful, comfortable accommodation for the weary traveller, right here in the heart of North Hokianga...  definitely the place to unwind. Well off the usual well-beaten tourist track, you have the opportunity to experience a way of life that is envied by many.

Time seems to stand still here - we call it 'Hokianga time'. Be prepared to go without many of the things you may take for granted - sealed roads, concrete footpaths, movie theatres, exclusive shops, Sky TV, reliable cell-phone coverage and busy beaches. If these are what you are hoping to find, you are definitely in the wrong place! Instead, take a deep breath and relax. If your shiny car doesn't want to get dirty, let us show you around. There are so many places to see and things to do, you'll marvel that you are only a few hours' drive from Auckland.

And what better location could you wish to stay in if you're wanting a holiday with a difference!

Accommodation

The fully self-contained cottage sleeps three, though more could be catered for if necessary. Kitchen includes pantry, small bench top oven, microwave and fridge-freezer. Shower, toilet and laundry adjoin the main bedroom.

Local Attractions

Consider some of these suggestions:

  • Cool off in the river - silky clear water straight from the Warawara
  • Ramble up or down the riverbed - startle Paradise ducks and pheasants, and get your feet wet
  • Explore in the bush around us - ancient puriri trees, giant tree ferns, the elusive kauri snail
  • Take a guided walk to Tarzan's Waterfall, or further upriver
  • Relax in our garden - an extensive collection of bromeliads, goldfish ponds, and fruit trees

Further afield, but all within 30 minutes' drive of K Road Cottage:

  • Te Karaka - Birthplace of Dame Whina Cooper, Te Karaka is a picturesque settlement on the shore of Hokianga Harbour, only ten minutes away - fish from the long jetty, gather oysters from the rocks, admire the lovely little church where services are still held
  • Waihou - The Long Bridge - safe swimming for the children at high tide; Waimirirangi Marae and the distinctive church on the hill above
  • Rangi Point - Drive up Windy Hill and enjoy the views of hills and harbour with Rawene township just visible in the distance. Admire the Anglican church built in 1878; Waiparera Marae; and finally at Rangi Point itself, you'll find a boat ramp, amazing boulders along the shore, the well-appointed community centre right on the beachfront and the original school building.
  • Mitimiti - Birthplace of Ralph Hotere, Mitimiti is a magical place. The beach is similar to 90 Mile Beach further north, in that it is able to be driven on, but take care - the sand hides many vehicles that have been claimed by the sea! On firmer ground you'll find Matihetihe Marae, a cemetery in the most spectacular setting, Hato Hemi church, Matihetihe Primary School, and some great fishing spots 
  • Panguru - The hub of our area. Drive up the hill to Ngatimanawa Marae and gaze down at the koru-design layout of Te Kura Taumata o Panguru, Panguru tavern and health clinic. You will also see Nahareta cemetery and Waipuna Marae, which you will have driven past when you arrived.
  • Motuti - Just over the hill from Panguru, Motuti is well worth a visit. It is particularly notable because the church is now the final resting place of Bishop Pompallier. 
  • Pawarenga - This is where you'll find the fabulous Golden Stairs walkway. Horse racing on the sand is a regular New Year's Eve event.
