Experience off-the-grid living in this private escape just 4kms from Whale Bay, & 12kms from Raglan.

The space
Enjoy a romantic getaway with the special person in your life in this very special place.

The LoveBus is set in a field high up on our 35 acre property and it has large, expansive views over pasture, the coast and ocean. It’s nearby a stream and just below our pine forest. It’s for young romantics (at heart), and adventurous types who want a special experience, not just accommodation.

ADVENTUROUS THINGS:
There are lots of adventurous things you can do whilst with us and we've left a few ideas for you in the bus. One of these things is a beautiful bush/stream walk (on our property) down towards the cliff/ocean, to a huge old Puriri tree where you can have a picnic. You’ll walk through the field, then through native bush and down to the stream, past a waterfall and then to the Picnic tree. The walk will take you 10-15 mins to get there and it’s a moderate level with downhill/uphill sections. It’s absolutely beautiful so we definitely recommend giving it a go. If you want to do this then please bring some gumboots or suitable walking shoes.

Guest access
You're welcome to take walks around the entire property. We can provide instructions on how to access our bush walks. Bring your gumboots.

Other things to note
- We have 10 acres of pine forest at the top of the land, and 10 acres of bush on the bottom border. You can feel free to walk the entire property. Have a wander and gather firewood in the forest, and watercress from the stream.
- You may bring one pet along (if you check with us first). You’ll need to make sure that all pet hair and waste etc is removed on leaving.
- We have two mountain bikes available to rent if you’d like to do some exploring while you’re here. There is also a great mountain bike track just near the beach in town.
- The bus is situated on our property down a steepish concrete driveway. You will need to walk the last 75 metres to the bus.
- Please bring your own drinking water. You can refill at our house with filtered water.
- Please bring some ice and/or ice packs for the chilly bins. We have spare ice packs at the house.
- Sometimes we allow one night bookings at the last minute for an additional $30 fee for the night, please inquire if you would like to do this.

Hi, we're Tara & Guillaume and we've created three gorgeous little tiny houses that we rent to couples who are looking for an escape from their everyday lives. Our property is called Kokomea and this translates to Sunset Glow in Te Reo Māori. We chose this name for our 35 acre piece of coastal paradise near Raglan, NZ because our land gets every last drop of sun until it sets in the evening and the sunsets are amazing. Experience what it’s like to live off-the-grid in a tiny house nestled in nature. Take time to rest and unplug from your everyday with a special person in your life. Stop, breathe fresh air, relax and revive. Whale Bay is located 8kms outside of Raglan in New Zealand. It's one of Raglan's world famous surf breaks and a popular spot for surfers and tourists alike. Our secluded spot is just 4kms from Whale Bay and 5kms from Manu Bay. We hope to meet you soon!
