  • Private access to an enchanting little rocky bay - fishing, diving, kayaking.
  • Stunning sea views & sunsets to the active volcano White Island

A modern fully self-contained seaside holiday house particularly suited for visitors intending a slightly longer stay.

A well furnished open plan dining / living room with glorious outlook to bush clad hills & sea glimpses leads out to a sunny spacious deck, outdoor furniture, barbecue, and of course .. the soothing sound & sense of the sea.

Stroll through landscaped gardens to the clifftop lookout .. a driftwood seat beneath the dappled shade of magnificent ancient Pohutukawa .. breathtaking sunsets .. sea birds & fishing boats .. the tidal surge of water across rocks.

Stunning views to the active marine volcano White Island quietly steaming on the horizon .. and if a lucky day that very special sighting of Dolphin or Orca (killer whale) cruising past just offshore.

At gardens end & cliff edge, steep stone steps lead down to a wild driftwood/seaweed strewn private rocky bay & pebble beach - an idyllic retreat but not suitable for children.

Scuba dive or snorkel the edge of our reef for lobster .. fish from the rocks or row the dinghy out .. explore the coastline by kayak (we have two) .. search for sea shells or simply lay back with a good book, glass of wine and breathe in the clean sea air, the solitude & natural beauty of this coastal paradise.

Other activities might include an excursion to the East Cape Lighthouse, a chartered fishing expedition from Waihau Bay or an exhilarating jet boat ride on the mighty Motu River .. perhaps lunch at the magical Macadamia Nut Orchard garden cafe overlooking Whanarua Bay .. go bush walking to a beautiful little waterfall - considered Waahitapu (sacred) to local Maori, try river or beach swimming, horse trekking, or take a guided historical & scenic walk with an exponent in local Maori history and culture ..

Local amenities in Te Kaha (less than 8ks drive - 5 mins)) include a first class waterfront licensed restaurant and bar, café, takeaways and groceries.
