The Beach Cottage

Cabins & Cottages

Matira, Waikato                    Listed By Lisa



Unspoilt by humans, Waikorea Beach is located between Raglan and Port Waikato on the West Coast of New Zealand's North Island.

The Beach Cottage is a 2 bedroom "Bach" overlooking the beach, every room has an amazing view. The Cottage is on a 1500 acre sheep and cattle farm.

Staying at the cottage gives you the opportunity to escape the madness of daily life & either sit back and enjoy the views or get in amongst it, whether this be;
- long farm or beach walks
- fishing (surfcasting, longlining or off Split Rock)
- sliding down sand dunes
- bird watching (NZ Dotterels)
- exploring archaeological sites
- or, taking your own horse for a stroll down the beach at low tide.

Access to the beach is down a pedestrian/Quad bike access route, it is quite steep in places and unfortunately is not suitable for wheelchairs or baby buggies. A good level of fitness is required.

While most people get to the Cottage and never want to leave just down the road (20mins) is the Nikau Caves & Cafe (, they do great coffee and homemade food in an amazing setting.
There is also a good walk to a waterfall fall from the cafe and of course the Caves themselves which some say are better than Waitomo - bring your old clothes for that!

Unique Experiences at The Beach Cottage
