Food scraps will go in the compost bin. We even provide you with re-usable shopping bags and produce bags for your grocery shop.

All our cleaning materials and bathroom amenities are  made from 100% natural ingredients, made in NZ and preferably handmade. This includes the shampoo, soap, dish wash detergent and washing powder.

We collect our own water and all waste water is processed on site.


100% Smoke free

The cottage is located in native NZ bush that has been protected by the Environment Court. It is therefore essential we have a  no smoking ban on the entire block of land. Should you wish to smoke this can only take place on the roadside car park. We trust that you understand the fire risk involved with smoking.
