Olive Cottage - Tiny Home

Designed for 1 0r 2 guests.

Olive Cottage is in the heart of our farm, nestled into our fabulous stone-walled vegetable garden where you can pick produce for your evening meal. You can watch the comings and goings on our horse sanctuary from your tiny deck and retreat inside the cottage for privacy at the end of the day.

There is full headroom in the kitchen and dining area, the bedroom and bathroom have a lower headroom  (5' 9 inches) and tall people might bump their heads!

The bed is a double and beautifully made up of Wallace Cotton designer linens, while the home is tiny it is very special and a perfect base for those keen to explore and return to a stylish place and also those keen to enjoy the farm and seaside.

The Cottage has all the conveniences of home, including the following:

  • Huge Dvd library and HDMI connection to plug your gear into for Netflix

Self-catering with BBQ & full kitchen stocked with pantry basics. We recommend a stop at Kerikeri village for groceries on your way here.

Is it better to travel than to arrive? Robert Louis Stephenson thought so! Your journey to Driftwood starts with a pitstop in Kerikeri to provision for your visit - trust us, you won't want to pop into town once you arrive.


Next, journey through some of New Zealand's most breathtaking coastal farmland. The last 15 minutes is unsealed but you do not need a 4WD to get here. Take it slow and enjoy the view. Your adventure starts here.

We love being out on the water and have safe moorings and a ramp at Driftwood. We encourage you to bring your boat and explore. Russell is just 10 minutes blat across the bay for dinner at the famous Duke of Marlborough hotel or be at the Black Rocks in minutes.
