Stunning historic 1913 Californian bungalow situated in Totara North as featured in Patrick Reynolds' 'Bungalow' book - a glorious celebration of New Zealand's most significant residential architectural styles. Built and originally owned by Laine & Son shipbuilders, the property has been painstakingly restored to a very high specification.

Placed in privacy, seclusion and sun, surrounded by harbour and sea views, the property has all the attractions of Far North District on its doorstep. Some of the most beautiful beaches of NZ are within a short drive, plus 2 golf clubs and a driving range, the charming village of Kaeo with cafes and supermarket and quality restaurants of Mangonui just 20 minutes drive away.

A fully equipped modern kitchen, sun room, lounge, separate dining room and beautifully furnished bedrooms together with lawned garden, decking with panoramic views, BBQ and outdoor furniture make this the perfect holiday home with plenty of space for groups of up to 12/14.

With the fish-rich waters of Whangoroa Harbour just metres from the house, a boat ramp at the bottom of the drive and the use of the property's deep water mooring, this is the ultimate venue for boating, beaching, fishing and diving holidays.

A truly wonderful property – come and experience this unique holiday home in the winterless north.

  • Had a great stay at this lovely property over Easter

    Had a great stay at this lovely property over Easter. We were a group of 3 families with kids and there was ample space for everyone. Setting is fantastic and having the boat ramp so close was perfect for early morning fishing trips. Edwin the caretaker was extremely helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

    We had an awesome stay at this beautiful house. The house had plenty of space so even when the weather didn't quite turn out for us we still had a great time. I would be more than happy to stay again :)

  • We thought the property was simply stunning

    We thought the property was simply stunning. It felt like you were walking into someone's private house rather than a holiday home. It is such a beautiful, fantastically well equipped house in an exquisite location, about as far away from the hustle and bustle of city life as you could ever wish to be, with glorious vistas from every part of the house, beautiful mature gardens, great bird life, a picturesque harbour laid out beneath you and gorgeous beaches within about 30 minutes. We loved it.
