Hut) to match your particular needs whether it be for a family holiday, a romantic getaway or a group reunion. The Arapawa lifestyle offers a glimpse of an old world New Zealand you will never forget. You won't want to leave our little piece of paradise!
The School Cottage, which is the remodelled school, was where the whaler's children were educated. This special,
cosy cottage is located on the grassy flats at Whekenui Bay, Tory Channel.
The cottage sleeps 6 comfortably, a maximum of 7 people. There is one set of double bunks and one set of single
bunks. A fold down bed is also available. The cottage is open plan living style
including kitchen with fridge/freezer, oven and hob and microwave oven. Separate shower and toilet
From the deck, you can look out to stunning views of the bay and a fresh water stream runs right beside the
cottage. Guests have no trouble in unwinding quickly.
You can relax while listening to the rumble of the waves from our safe, white, sandy beach only a short walk
away from the cottage.
