Spend an unforgettable holiday in the enchanting countryside valley in the foothills of the Kaimai ranges. Surrounded by stunning garden, The Plane Tree Cottage is a hidden gem set amongst half a hectare of lush greenery. An architecturally designed and built, owner operated retreat, just 4 mins drive to the Katikati township, 15 mins to Waihi and 35 mins to Tauranga, this secluded property is a countryside retreat like no other.
The Plane Tree Cottage offers a haven of peace and tranquility against the backdrop of native bush and home orchard, giving a new meaning to " getting away from it all". It is the perfect place for nature-lovers, a quiet retreat for busy city folks, artists, and writers, or a romantic weekend getaway.
Wake up to the peaceful sound of native birds, enjoy the company of our feathered friends and farm fresh eggs, help yourself to our organic seasonal orchard fruit, read a book under the shady London Plane trees. Discover the quaint mural town of Katikati or one of the near beaches, take a day trip to Karangahape Gorge, go cycling around the shores of the Bay of Plenty - take a pick from the endless amount of activities available at you doorstep. And at the end of the day, sit back and relax with a glass of local wine and watch the colours of the sky turn into a starry vista from the privacy of your own deck.
