Fish off the private wharf or bring your own boat theres great anchorage in the bay. Hang out on the beach all day in summer or cosy up in the lounge with the Woodburner, enjoying the views in winter.

Swimming, bush walks, fishing, diving, visit the Historic Mansion House theres never a dull moment here. But if thats what you want there can be plenty of those too.

Two bedrooms on a fully fenced property, safe for the children. The Cottage suits couples or families, one bedroom has bunks and a single, and the other has two King singles that pushed together make a king. (cot and highchair available too). So we can comfortable sleep a family of five.

    We had a lovely stay with our kids, even despite arriving in a storm! Bush walks, kayaking, drinking hot chocolates on the wharf, it was the perfect winter getaway. Even saw a kiwi on the property on our last night!

  • A real gem

    A real gem. The perfect spot for our family of five's weekend getaway, plenty of space, felt completely safe with the young kids on the beach and in the water. Loads to do on land. Beautiful views, just magic. Would love to come back in the future !
