Kikorangi Cottage is situated next door to the main house, but well screened for privacy with mature plantings and trees. A separate gravel driveway with parking space leads to the back of the cottage. It is rare that you will hear any noise from the houses below us - the main sounds we enjoy are bird song and sheep on the hills behind and below.
Temperature control is managed with a electric heat pump. There is also a ceramic wall heater in the bedroom and a wood burner in the lounge.
Your water is supplied from rain water which is double filtered and then UV treated. Please be aware that we do not have an endless supply, so use sparingly.
Both the main house and the cottage are reliant on our Biolytix Tiger Worm septic system. The little wonders digest the solids, and the liquids are treated in the system and then dripped through-out the flower beds on the property. This means we are as close to nature as possible, but do need to treat the Tiger Worms with respect. Please do not use bleach, harsh chemicals or sanitary wipes (which do NOT decompose). If you are on normal strength antibiotics that is fine. However, if you are receiving oral chemotherapy we will unfortunately not be able to accommodate you.
So that was all the boring logistics. Basically Kikorangi Cottage breathes tranquility and joy and we feel privileged to live here and be able to share this space in time with you.
