Cottage
Rata Cottage is truly a home away from home and can be described as ‘absolutely charming’. Nestled at the end of a long private driveway, the home and its lovely garden are a delightful surprise. The quiet and peacefulness of the surroundings is immediately evident, and lush native gardens encircle the property. Everything about this home and property is pleasing to the eye. That this lovely home is warm and welcoming goes without saying... A cosy outdoor patio with its glass roof and tensioned awnings enables you to either have the full el fresco feel with all the blinds rolled up, or block out the breeze or inclement weather by rolling them down. Comfortable outdoor furniture makes this a great spot to take an afternoon nap in the sun or read a book, and the 6-burner BBQ makes this ...Rata Cottage is truly a home away from home and can be described as ‘absolutely charming’.

Comfortable outdoor furniture makes this a great spot to take an afternoon nap in the sun or read a book, and the 6-burner BBQ makes this a perfect area for entertaining in all weather. The spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and living area has a simple elegance and is charmingly appointed with its comfy furniture and eclectic native artwork. And you’ll certainly enjoy preparing meals in the modern well designed kitchen with all the modern easy to use appliances any chef would be happy to cook with. A fireplace adjacent to the kitchen/living room provides cosy winter warmth and there’s always plenty of firewood on hand. The master bedroom has French doors which open out to the gardens and the surrounding native trees providing a delightful backdrop to the distinctly appealing decor. The second bedroom has one entire wall of windows which makes this a very light and bright room. Each of the three bedrooms is furnished with style and supreme comfort in mind. The ensuite bathroom to the main bedroom is a special feature with its French doors and bi-fold windows which brings the garden into the bathroom and will transport you to an exotic spa as you soak in the luxurious bath. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the guest room has a Californian King which can convert to two king single beds. The third bedroom is a single room. High quality bedding and linen has been used in all the rooms to maximise your comfort. A separate well appointed bathroom, which combines the laundry, services the rest of the home. The owners of this enchanting property have ensured maximum enjoyment of the gardens and outdoors, and aside from the outdoor living room/patio, French doors also lead out to another terrace area from the living room allowing you to bask in the late afternoon sun while you sip your coffee or glass of wine. The property has plenty of space, and off street parking for your cars. And Rata Cottage would be a fabulous choice if you are rugby fans coming to New Zealand in September or October 2011. For those games that you can’t make in person, there’s a 42' plasma TV to watch them on in the superb comfort of your home away from home.

fab-u-lous!
Stayed just before xmas last year and what an experience! This is one of the best houses I've stayed in every way.... comfortable and relaxed, we loved the outside space and covered BBQ area for dining. Location was perfect. A walk away from every local amenity, shops, cafe and especially Cheltenham Beach! We enjoyed morning swims and evening walks into Devonport. The ferry to Auckland and the Islands was also just a walk away and after our 4 night stay, we had to be dragged away. We stayed in some beautiful houses whilst on our trip but this was the best by a long chalk. We will return!

comfortable, warm and a great location
A well appointed cottage located very close to Cheltenham Beach and not too far from Devonport. Quiet and warm (for a relatively chilly winter spell for auckland. Loved the local art on the walls. I needed somewhere to stay for four 'separately sleeping' adults and this was the only place I found that could do it. the two main bedrooms (double and twin or double)were spacious, one with large on-suite. The third room was tiny but perfectly adequate. A bit hard to find once in the street be good to add a 'rata cottage' sign on the letterbox.

The 40th birthday
when we stayed at Rata Road, one of several occasions to stay, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The presentation was superb outshined only by the company. The location was fantastic with many wonderful walking routes. The beach offered many great swimming experiences and the retail therapy in Devonport awesome :) Thank you Richard and Neil for the wonderful times and memories we have of Devonport and 1a Rata Rd.
