Un-interrupted harbour views beach house

 An absolute hidden Gem. Stunning un-interupted views of the beautiful Kaipara Harbour matched by the tranquility of the wider environment. Enjoyed coffee each morning listening to Tui's, Pheasants, Peacocks, Woodies flying past plus another small species of unidentified bird that provided great entertainment throughout the stay. The house had everything we need and just matched the setting so well. Evenings in the Spa watching the sun go down very special.

 Clean and tidy house, exactly what we needed after a long hot holiday, so close to the water and park. 

ABSOLUTE WATERFRONT, ABSOLUTE PRIVACY AT PAHI

 We loved Whisky Point - really made us appreciate the Kaipara. Stunning property in a beautiful setting with amazing views. House was comfortable, clean and really well equipped. Monty loved exploring the grounds and surrounding shoreline. And whitebait right next door from the neighbors...........We are definitely keen to return.
