Kokopu Estate - a Romantic Retreat
Kokopu Estate, two charming cottages in a beautiful valley close to Akaroa, Banks Peninsula, New Zealand.
Kokopu Cottage is in an idyllic location beside a stream with gardens and orchard. Beside the stream is an outdoor wood-fired bath. Kokopu Cottage has two bedrooms, the main bedroom has a large lead light window and beautiful hand crafted bed. There is an open fire in the living room so it is very cosy on cold evenings.
The cottage offers an ideal honeymoon retreat with mornings spent in bed, the birds singing outside. The second bedroom has a large comfortable single bed with a rollout single which comes to the same level.
There's plenty for the children to do outside while you relax in the intimate living room with a glass of wine. The bath hidden in the bush is a short walk over the bridge. Slip in for a romantic treat with just the stars for company and the open sky above. Well behaved pets by arrangement.
