Experience fale style living for family get togethers.

We have a true camp style kitchen, fully equipped, with a large dining table to seat a dozen or more. Lots of outdoor furniture to relax in.

The beach at Whangateau is tidal but sandy and perfect for children, with crystal clear waters. It is also ideal for kayaking and other water sports. We have tennis rackets available for your use at the tennis/basketball/netball courts across the road next to the beach and the sportsfield and cricket pitch.

Activities to partake on site include darts, table tennis, cricket and whatever else you wish with large lawns to play and spread out on.

There is plenty of parking for cars and the boats which you can launch across the road in the Whangateau Harbour when the tide is in. If the tide is out you can launch the boat at Leigh (5 minutes drive away). Upon request and for a small charge we can tow your boat out by tractor to the Omaha channel at low tide.

When you bring home the fish you caught you can smoke it yourself in the large smoker on site.

    What a very handy, family friendly location! The beach and playground and basketball/tennis courts are just across the road. Denise allowed us access to her equipment, the kids loved the bikes and the table tennis! We will be back definitely!

  • This place is such a find! We loved our stay

    This place is such a find! We loved our stay. It is mainly open fale style accomodation (ie. two walls) with the chalet and caravan on either side. We had my sisters hens weekend here and it was just perfect. Everyone who came couldn't get over how amazing the place was. The kitchen is great with lots of space to entertain. There is a lovely outdoor space where we ate most our meals and had games on the lawn which was just perfect. The owners are delightful to deal with. Would highly recommend!

  • Fantastic venue and set up for a birthday party

    Fantastic venue and set up for a birthday party. Had everything we needed and everyone raved about it. Tidy and clean casual fale style buildings with good amount of cover if needed. In a handy location just a short drive to Matakana and also handy with campground across road for guests. Can highly recommend and will definitely be back!! Thanks again for a wonderful venue....

    When we stumbled on this little gem we new instantly how perfect it was for our wedding. What a beautiful, private place to hold a wedding. It is very unique and the Fale and outdoor kitchen add the element of rustic meets tropical. Perfect venue for weddings, family gatherings and other events. Just be mindful of your noise levels as it is in a residential area.

  • To have the beach over the road from Wine and the Willows...

    To have the beach over the road from Wine and the Willows is a huge draw card … both Leigh and Matakana just down the road is very handy.
