Description

  • Located in protected native rain forest
  • Stunning views down to Lion Rock at Piha Beach
  • Architecturally designed

The Miller Family purchased a 7 acre native bush block in 1924. It is now registered with the Queen Elizabeth Trust and has an open space convenant on it i.e. protected native forest. There is a labyrinth of bush tracks and an old dam on the property. The property is 7 kms from Piha Beach with beautiful bush and sea views over the Tasman Sea and Lion Rock.

There is also another original bach on the property which is advertised under "unique bush property" Yes, you can even book out the 2 properties if you require larger separate accommodation.

This fabulous new Retreat was designed by Chris Tate who won international acclaim for his "Glasshouse" in Titirangi.

The decor is beautiful, you will watch the sun go down from the deck at night; and have an amazing peaceful sleep on the NZ made Cotton and Latex mattresses. The 2 queen-size beds are the only sleeping facilities - no fold-out or portable beds are provided.

It has a special feel about it, with an outdoor kitchen sink and outdoor bath (with hot water).

Heat pump installed, for extra warmth in winter, and guests arriving on a Friday night in winter, instant heat!

What else can we say...........you will love it

Self catering (including rice cooker & slow cooker).

This property is not suitable for pets.

With thanks to our special friend Ed Kanze for some spectacular photos on his last visit .

    A very cool and private place with amazing views of bush and Piha beach. Huge glass doors/windows in all rooms. Perfect for a romantic getaway, or for two couples. The outside sink was a bit curious, but no problem once we figured out the access via the sliding door! Great selection of classic movies :)

  • Beautiful property in an amazing location with great views

    Beautiful property in an amazing location with great views. The retreat is modern yet quirky and homely. Very well stocked with everything that you need and very comfortable. The outside bath is a real treat and we had a great walk whilst exploring the labyrinth of trails around the house. Hope to visit again.

    Nice, new bach with a great view of lion rock in the distance. Quiet and surrounded by bush. Outdoor bath was a treat. Have been back twice and will be back again.
