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.

  • Well appointed and toasty warm in the middle of winter

    Well appointed and toasty warm in the middle of winter. Very clean and had everything we needed. Good shower pressure and peaceful outlook over the bay. Would definitely recommend this property.

    This is a fabulous property. We greatly enjoyed our winter mini-break at Fantasy Island. Peter hosted us (great chap) in Adam's temporary absence.

    Amazing view, bird life and gardens. A lovely tranquil place to relax on a lounger and read a book in the sunshine. We enjoyed our stay.

You don't need to bring anything from home (they've even thought of DVDs, board games and books)!
