1 minute walk to the beautiful Awana Beach, The Red Barn House is a contemporary kitset home, with a distinctive barn-red cladding.

The home has three easy care bedrooms, and half of the house is open plan kitchen, dining and living with views to the Awana Valley.

Lush native plants grace the gardens and teems with native birdlife - tuis, kakas, wood pigeon, rails all abound in and around the native flax, pohutakawa, and puka plantings.

Located right across the road from Awana beach, the location is private and secluded, yet close to the beach, the Awana estuary, 5 minutes walk to adjacent Pohutakawa Beach, and with easy access by car to Claris, Harataonga Beach, Windy Canyon Walk, and the stunning Tramline Track 'Waterfall' Walk.

Great surfing, swimming, fishing, walking just minutes away. Awana is a regular destination for dolphin pods, Orca and migrating whales.

After dark expect to see amazing starry skies.

(The spectacular night sky on Barrier has led to the possibility of giving Great Barrier Island Dark Sky Sanctuary status due to the outstanding night skyscapes due to minimal if any light pollution 2016/17 Council Report).

A comfortable easy care rental property.

  • We sent a week on Great Barrier and had a fantastic time

    We sent a week on Great Barrier and had a fantastic time. Awana is centrally located and allowed us to easily day trip around the island. The property was spacious and comfortable and just beside the beach. Brilliant kiwi summer holiday!

    Such an amazing place to stay! We couldn't have chosen a better spot! 2 second walk to the beautiful Awana beach, where there is excellent surf and some great diving spots. The house was amazing, we loved the old outdoor stove and the records. Would definitely stay here again.

    Great funky bach. Big living area that was just great for a family. Close to a lovely beach. Slighlty disappointed that there was no view.

    Great space, with open living area and good size bed rooms, perfect for 2 couples and our toddlers, lots of outdoor space too, less then 5 minute walk to beach and super location right in the middle of the island, loved the record player!
