  • This property will take your breath away when you arrive

    This property will take your breath away when you arrive. It is a bit off the main road, but it is worth it for the serene views you get. Nothing like it. Also, easy access (driving) to the nearby beaches and ferry to Whitianga, My only complaint would be the lack of wifi, but perhaps that is what forces you to enjoy this property even more. Highly recommend!

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your lovely comments. Wi-Fi has only been possible in the area from mid-2016, and we now supply this on a first-come first-served basis. Other than that, it is an intentional choice we have made to "un-plug" from the world not to have phone or tv on-site to distract from the rest and relaxation!
