This cottage is where Island Gin was born. Andi Ross, first experimented distilling gin here in 2017. A lot has changed since then. In fact everything as the cottage has been totally renovated and is 88 steps to the dunes. With sea glimpses, watch the sunrise over the Pacific and see it set from the architecturally awarded "Wetland Folly." The Island Gin cottage is perfect for a couple, however a separate double bedroom is available by arrangement.

The cottage features a mezzanine bedroom. The ground floor open kitchen, dining, living and bathroom uses sustainable hardwood boards and timber lined walls. The vaulted ceiling space allows a mezzanine area to be the dedicated sleeping area. A queen sized bed is positioned next to a window, perfect to watch the stars that are part of the Dark Sky Sanctuary, whilst tucked up in the pure linen bedding. The bedside lantern is rechargeable and moveable. A dressing area, with open clothes rail and plenty of timber hangers, shares the space. Insect screens on the windows allows cooling sea breezes and the sound of the rolling surf to fill the space.

The ground floor is open plan living with the kitchen taking in the view to the wetlands, and whilst relaxing in the vintage Arne Norell Ilona sofas, you can enjoy a glimpse of the sea, wine in hand.

A generous timber dining table, with original Tolix stools, ensures unfinished jigsaw puzzles or board games can also have a seat at the table.

The kitchen, with it's matt black bench tops and beautifully crafted cabinetry, overlooks the wetlands to the west. The enormous bench top to ceiling windows slide open giving a sense of being amongst the trees canopy. Or your guests in the folly can shout out for another drink! Perfect for spotting Tui, Wood pigeon or ducks whilst preparing a meal. The new litre fridge/freezer will have chilled water and large ice blocks ready for your arrival. There is a stainless steel 4 burner gas hob and oven, along with all the kitchen essentials. Glassware has been crafted by renowned glass artist Ruth Allen and most of the plates and bowls has been created by Sarah Henderson the island’s gifted ceramicist. There’s an array of cutting boards, baking tins, serving and mixing bowls. There's a Soda Stream, a well used stove top espresso pot and plenty of storage area for your provisions.

A secret door at the foot of the stairs hides the timber lined bathroom, ensuring complete privacy, with a generous linen press/storage cupboard, where you will find Egyptian cotton towel set and beach towels for your stay. When showering, the large sliding window overlooking to the wetlands should be opened.

This architectural awarded structure is part of the property for you to chill out and relax.
Designed by Herbst Architects, and featured in numerous magazines, the Wetland Folly is positioned towards the setting sun overlooking the wetlands. Designed as an additional living area, the walls of the open up up bring the outdoors in. The massive hardwood table sits in the centre of the space anchored at the end by the large open fireplace. This fireplace is used to cook on and provide warmth in the cooler months. Importantly a fire extinguisher is in the Folly in case of emergency. During the year there are Fire Restrictions in place, and the fireplace can not be used during this time. However a gas BBQ is the perfect stand in. A cozy hanging chair is positioned in the opposite corner of the fireplace and is perfect for watching the wildlife in the wetlands. By moving the supplied chilly bin and bluetooth JBL Extreme speakers into the Folly transforms the atmosphere into a sunset bar vibe. Perfect for an Island Gin Sunset Cocktail hour.

As you’ll be experiencing living totally off-grid, there are a number of critical things you must be aware of. As your stay will be totally powered by our newly installed solar system, please limit your use of power. Switch off all lights and appliances ( except the fridge ) at the wall sockets when not in use. This is to conserve the power stored in the batteries. This is the only source of power for the water pump which supplies you're drinking, showering and toilet flushing water. This is why high energy consuming items like a hair dryer, toaster or coffee machine are not permitted or available in the cottage.

Being on an island we are responsible for our own water supply. Rain is harvested from our roof and stored in tanks, then super filtered, so you can safely drink it. This is why we ask you to be water wise, limit the time in the shower and only flush the toilet when needed.

Mahali utakapokuwa

Auckland, Nyuzilandi

Medlands beach is a 2km long, white sand beach. When the conditions are right there's a great surf break. Beach fishing or free diving is another activity or relax in the rock pool at Memory Rock. As Great Barrier Island is an offical Dark Sky Sanctuary, you can make time to star gaze either from the deck of the cottage or with one of the Night Sky Tours.
The closest village to Medlands beach is Claris, and it is only a 15 minute drive away. Here you'll find the airport, post office, general store, bottle shop, cafe, medical centre, chemist and art gallery. At Tryphena, the other village on the west coast, is where you'll find a well stocked general store, Cafe, Pub and Social Club.
