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. Fireplace available with firewood provided over winter months.

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

Self catering. Webber BBQ on front deck (always cook with the lid down on a Webber). Also a rice cooker and 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.

    We had a fantastic Easter at Piha Retreat, we loved the views, the walks, the outside bath and found it a very relaxing place to just chill out.

    Thank you - so happy you had a great Easter here. It is very easy to relax when you are tucked in the native bush with the views across the bush and down to Piha and the Tasman Sea!
