Honeymoons at Cotter House create memories that will make your honeymoon last forever. Tucked away in chic Remuera, Auckland City’s finest neighbourhood, Cotter House is a true Pandora’s box. Open the box and you’ll unwind after your big day in superb individual style, yet have all the attractions of New Zealand’s city on your doorstep.
An original Remuera homestead built in 1847, Cotter is a rare example of Colonial Regency architecture at its finest, and was a 2008 Finalist in the World Tourism Awards for Best New Zealand Retreat. Today, the heritage mansion springs to life with renewed splendour, thanks to the exquisite continental flair of its Colombian-born, Frenchraised owner and host, Gloria Poupard-Walbridge, fluent in French, English, Spanish, Mandarin and Cantonese. Throughout Cotter’s gracious highceilinged
rooms your hostess has used French élan to combine exquisite antiques with an extensive modern art collection.
Gloria’s insider knowledge is shared on guided tours to local artists and antique dealers, and Flights of Fancy, short luxury day trips to such exotic Northland locations as Cape Reinga and the Bay of Islands.
You’ll soon recover your post-wedding breath, relaxing in the deep cool verandahs and heritage drawing and dining rooms, where today’s luxury meets the style of bygone days. The four guest suites are individually decorated in superb Cotter House fashion, blending contemporary art with luscious fabrics and antiques collected from travels around the globe. Free daily kickboxing and Pilates too.
Choosing Cotter House means a honeymoon heritage you’ll treasure for the rest of your lives together.
