Need to escape the madness of city life, or simply looking for somewhere to unwind and rejuvenate? Then "Fantasy Island" is the place for you.

The cottage is a sunny one-bedroom unit with elevated sea views across Tryphena Harbour. Nestled quietly amongst 13 acres of bush and landscaped gardens, "Fantasy Island" offers plenty of space to spread out and enjoy the views and sunshine.

Your hosts Adam and Peter are nearby to advise and assist as required, otherwise you will be given the privacy to enjoy your time on the property. You may choose to explore the wonderful beauty that Great Barrier Island has to offer, or alternatively simply watch time slip by as you relax and unwind on our beautiful, tranquil property.

The Cottage is self-contained with it's own ensuite and is quite separate from the main house. With 13 acres at your disposal, there are plenty of places to find solitude and relaxation. The driveway to the cottage is sealed and easily accessible by car or foot, and there is plenty of room to park.

There is a fridge/freezer, oven and BBQ so that you can self-cater, otherwise there is a good selection of restaurants and bars in Tryphena if you choose to eat out.

We think "Fantasy Island" is a slice of paradise. The cottage promises a comfortable stay where you can relax and enjoy all the beauty and serenity that Great Barrier Island has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you into our part of the world.

Special conditions: Smoking allowed only outside please. No fires or fireworks (year round island-wide total fire ban). Not suitable for children (adults and older teenagers only) nor pets.

  • We had a great stay

    We had a great stay. There is a very step driveway but so worthwhile becuase of the views. We were a 5/10 Knute walk from the Irish pub and cafe in Tryphena. Thee Cottage was lovely and private. The gardens were also lovely. We would recommend this property.

  • The cottage is perfect in every way

    The cottage is perfect in every way. It is well appointed with lots of attention to detail including a night light, torch and picnic blanket. The views from the cottage and upper gardens are amazing. We watched a pod of dolphins from the lounge.

  • Fantasy Island Cottage is a truly beautiful location

    Fantasy Island Cottage is a truly beautiful location. The views are incredible and Tryphena is a great place to base yourselves if you're planning on touring the rest of the Island. We thoroughly enjoyed the attention to detail and effort put into the cottage by Adam and Peter. The extra beach towels and picnic hamper and basket to use while watching sunsets made our experience on Barrier particularly special.

  • Set in beautiful gardens, looking across lush greenery to the sea

    Set in beautiful gardens, looking across lush greenery to the sea. Lots of lovely spots in the garden to sit and enjoy the tranquillity. Well appointed cottage with reading, dvds, picnic and cooking supplies provided . A steep driveway which was easily negotiated in our 2 WD Starlet.
