  • Part of a beautiful Waterfront property at Waipu Cove
  • Take a kayak over to the sand hills and swim, fish or just explore the surf beach
  • Spend time with the donkeys and little kunekunes. They will love your company

Our Spaside Studio is part of a boutique lodge with only 2 lettable areas. It is situated on the waterfront at Waipu Cove. 30 minutes from Whangarei and 90 minutes from Auckland. You can fish in the estuary or collect cockles (baby clams). Some guests have even returned with giant oysters and, yes, we have the shells to prove it. Kayak over to the dunes and you have all the surf beach pretty much to yourself. Swim, surf cast, collect pipis, have a romantic picnic in the dunes or go for a beach walk. Miles of white sand beach and practically not a sole in sight.

Meet up with our rescued farm animals and be welcomed by our welcoming committee of Czar and Duke. 2 elderly but enthusiastic dogs rescued from appalling conditions but now living like royalty. All our animals are delightful and it makes their day just to see you. Just prior to feeding time in the morning can be a bit noisy with the donkeys braying for attention. Nothing a cuddle and a sheaf of hay won't put to rest though.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed outside only Not suitable for children as too many water features. Property must be left as found or cleaning fee will apply. Any damages or breakages to be paid for.

  • Really nice place

    Really nice place. A little confused by the multiple rooms available with similar pictures. The spa and the view or the dunes is awesome.

    Great property, easy drive from Auckland, very peaceful and had good Vodafone coverage and wifi ! Can see the sea and/or flicker of the fireplace from the master bedroom so that was nice.

    This property is FANTASTIC for those with dogs! It's like having a little park as a back garden - it must take a LOT of work to maintain the grounds; and it's well worth it - it's a beautiful setting.
