Interakcija s gostima

We are happy to share our knowledge of the Opotiki district with you, and make suggestions for activities for your stay.

Guided bushwalks are available upon request, on a koha (donation) basis. Please arrange in advance.

Ostale napomene

As the cabin is off-grid, the electricity supply is dependent on the amount of sunshine and the storage in the battery bank. Therefore high drain devices such as hairdryers are not suitable. Devices such as laptops, phone chargers etc are fine however. We are happy to show you around the solar setup if that sort of thing interests you.

Although there is no wi-fi provided, there may be cellphone coverage depending on your network provider.

Please be aware that the cabin sits within a farming valley. Although uncommon, there may be times when neighboring farm activities involve the use of machinery outside of normal work hours.

Absolutely stunning. Beautiful nature, a comfortable cabin, and anything you could possibly need. Mei was so responsive and completely accommodating. We loved it so much that we extended our trip another night. It's a bit of a drive out into the woods and rather isolated-- exactly what we wanted, but good to know going in. Must see the glow worms and the stars!

A beautiful rural retreat in a basic, perfectly well supplied home. Sparklingly clean, very comfortable, peaceful getaway with local walks being a big highlight (glow-worms, guided tours). Thank you so much!

Pigeonwood is an absolutely dreamy space in the most beautiful of environments. We were warmly greeted by Wayne, who led us down an unsealed road to an idylic pocket of land (and even left us with a couple of home grown zucchinis, coffee and chocolates!) We didn't want to leave - the house is thoughtfully put together, clean and has all the basic ingredients for a peaceful getaway. The privacy, bushwalks, and also the genuine care for the natural environment makes Pigeonwood a blissful escape for any visitors.

La "cabane" est située au milieu de la propriété de Mei et Wayne, surélevée entre des pâturages et une forêt. C'est l'endroit parfait si vous voulez vous échapper un moment de la ville et profiter de la nature. Nous avons pu profiter des jeux de société, de la guitare, des raquettes de badminton à disposition, en plus de la bibliothèque remplie de romans et de livres à propos de la faune et la flore locale. Mei nous a fait une visite guidée des bois (qui est d'ailleurs très bien fléchée si vous décidez d'aller y faire un tour par vous-même) et nous a parlé de la faune (mites qui se mettent dans les arbres "puriri", araignées, ...) et la flore (puriri, rata, silver fern,...) qui y sont présents, ce qui a pour nous été très instructif. Si vous aimez observer les oiseaux, un banc se trouve juste en face d'un grand puriri, arbre particulièrement fréquenté par les "pigeonwoods". Nous avons aussi fait une marche nocturne (très bien indiquée avec des flèches fluorescentes) pour voir les "glow worms" (les lampes étaient à disposition dans la cabane). Nous avons aussi pu profiter du hamac, idéal pour se poser le soir et regarder les étoiles. Comme le temps était généralement assez bon, nous avons à chaque pris nos repas sur la terrasse. La cuisine équipée et bien fournie nous a permis de préparer nos repas sans aucun soucis (il y avait même un kit de pique-nique à disposition). Le lit était extrêmement confortable et, même si l'envie d'explorer les environs était là, il a parfois été difficile d'en sortir! Concernant l'emplacement général de la cabane, il est très bien situé car il n'est qu'à quelques minutes d'Opotiki, de belles plages et de chouettes randonnées. Mei et Wayne mettent à disposition des flyers avec les activités à faire dans les environs et ne manqueront pas de vous conseiller des activités locales dans le cas où cela vous intéresse. Nous avons tellement aimé séjourner chez eux que nous leur avons demandé de rester une nuit de plus et nous ne pouvons que très chaleureusement vous conseiller de passer plusieurs nuits chez Mei et Wayne, qui sont des hôtes très accueillants et qui feront tout pour que vous vous sentiez comme chez vous et que vous disposiez de tout ce dont vous avez besoin, cela en plus d'offrir une visite guidée de la forêt à ne pas manquer!

We booked our stay at Pigeonwood for two nights but we extended for another two because we so loved the place and felt so relaxed and comfortable there. It was a pleasure to meet and talk with Mei and Wayne, such lovely, committed and knowledgeable people and to share their piece of paradise. They were very attentive and helpful, making sure we had everything we needed, but they never intruded. The cabin location is very special, set at the end of a drive through the bush, in a perfectly private, sunny clearing overlooking bush and farmland. Totally peaceful and quiet - apart from birdsong - it is the perfect place to unwind and switch off for a while. You won't be able to use the internet or make calls but you only need to go up the drive and services are resumed. For us, this was part of the charm. The cabin is beautifully finished with a sweet smelling wood interior and every detail has been thoughtfully considered. The beds are comfortable - we also used the sofa bed - and there is a very good shower. The kitchen is well stocked with a gas hob, pots and pans, coffee plunger, toaster, crockery etc and basics are provided such as tea, coffee, sugar and milk. There is even a library of interesting books and a selection of games to play. We loved the deck with its shade sail and the hammock and, although we didn't use it, there is a BBQ and a fire pit. One day we walked on the very clearly marked and well maintained track through the beautiful bush on the property, with its ancient Puriri trees, giant tree ferns and Nikau palms. At night we took the torches provided and went back in to see the wonderful glow worms, like strings of fairy lights along the path. This is a really special place and we can recommend it unreservedly.

Being English, superlatives remain the reserve of truly exceptional experiences. We can assure you that Pigeonwood is indeed exceptional. The setting is fabulous, amongst the lush forests above the coast and you are in complete privacy. The cabin is beautifully finished and has everything you could need from a hammock to a fire pit for the evenings and a BBQ. The cabin sits on the owners' land upon which grows forest akin to a nature reserve and they have taken the trouble to very clearly mark out 2 walks through the land - one for the day of around 4km, and one for the evening to take in the many glowworms that litter the area (a head torch with red light setting is even provided so you can see the glowworms without taking a tumble!). The hosts are very friendly indeed and are equally happy to offer advice on activities in the surrounding area as they are to just leave you to it, whichever you prefer. It was very easy to coordinate arrival time and Wayne met us to show us around. Everything was ready to go, the cabin was immaculately clean and there was tea and even some great, local, fresh-ground coffee. We cannot recommend Pigeonwood highly enough, it exceeded expectations by a long way and is a unique shelter of calm that is very hard to come by these days. We feel really lucky to be the first people to have stayed here! Thank you, Blake and Georgie
