  • An Architects own Beach House. Splendidly appointed and decorated.
  • Just 10m of lawn and then you are on the beach. Dolphins visit the harbour frequently.
  • Dining in the moonlight on the deck facing the sea or visiting the nearby cafes...A difficult choice

This luxury beach front house is Architect owned, it oozes charm with indoor out door flow. Open the bedroom french doors and fall asleep to the sound of lapping water across the moonlit bay. In the morning throw open the kitchen bifold windows to the morning sun. The living room opens on to a verandah on all three sides with bi-folding doors. A sheltered side is always available. Stunning views from every room. Check out our web site for more photos and a fuller description. The harbour is very safe for kayaking in most weathers. Most of the time a gentle lapping of the waves is all that can be heard.

50" Plasma screen and Blue-Ray DVD home theatre surround sound with Sky TV and Wifi available. Toys on site for your use include:- 3 ride on kayaks (one is a double), life jackets, a 3 burner BBQ. Launch the kayaks for a morning fish or the boat (in the next bay) for a wake board or an afternoon dive.

The local store at Tutukaka has all the normal goods for your use including a good range of recent DVDs'. Fancy a night out then there is the iconic 'Schnappa Rock' or 'Oceans Resort' by the marina. Takeaways are just 5 minutes over the hill in Nungaruru or a beautiful pizza / Cafe in the marina.

The marina in the harbour has a huge range of charter vessels for diving , fishing or touring. The beautiful Matapouri bay, Whale bay and the surf beach of Sandy bay is just a 10 to 15 minute drive and Whangarei only 30 minutes. The harbour is alive with fish, gannets and crayfish. On occasions dolphins enter the bay to round up schools of fish.

  • A great location and nice house

    A great location and nice house. The owner did warn us about the mosquitos, and he wasn't kidding, we got munched! Bring your bug repellent and you'll have a great time.

  • Definitely the nicest holiday home I've stayed in

    Definitely the nicest holiday home I've stayed in. The location can't be beat, looking out at Phillip Island. We enjoyed taking the kayaks out in the bay. As it was a little cool, we had the fire going both nights, which was very cozy. It was a great spot to chill out and we will certainly be back.
