The Waterline is a unique bach sitting on stilts over the waters of the Hokianga Harbour. Situated in the historic village of Kohukohu (see the village's website for more about Kohukohu), The Waterline offers a romantic getaway for couples and an inspirational environment for relaxing, as a retreat for the artist or writer or just an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. With Wifi installed there's no need to rush back to the office!

Kohukohu is a small village with a warm and friendly community ideally situated for exploring the sub tropical far north of New Zealand. Within about an hours drive you can visit the Bay of Islands, the stunning sand dunes at Opinoni at the mouth of the harbour, the majestic Kauri Tane Mahuta in the Waipoua Forest, Ninety Mile Beach and the wild west coast at Mitimiti.

Special conditions: The Waterline is really set for a couple to enjoy. It is possible that one or maybe two children could stay but as the bach offers single studio accommodation there is not room for more than two adults.

Thank you so much for letting us book and stay here we will definitely be coming back next year it is so worth the 7 HR flight across the ditch. My family enjoyed it so much it's beautiful and tranquil to wake up every morning to that scenery was heaven on earth. Thank you Brad and Vipi

  • This was an incredible place

    This was an incredible place. The village is so friendly, peaceful and remote, and the house itself is so unique and beautiful - amazing to fall asleep with the sound of water under the house and fish off the deck and it had everything we could possibly need and was full of fascinating things
