Great for a peaceful retreat and time away...sit on the deck with a glass of wine and relax, watching the amazing sunsets and enjoy the ever-changing moods of the tidal harbour, listening to the sounds of the bush and surf.

Relax on your own lawn with picnic table and a sheltered BBQ area. Or go on short bush walks where you can sit in the swing seat and listen to nature.

We have a Canadian canoe for your use (we also supply the paddles and life jackets). Paddle across the harbour and watch the migratory birds feeding as the tides change, or take a walk around Tern Island. A short distance away is the boat ramp where you can launch your boat and spend a few hours in the harbour.

The harbour is very safe for swimming at high tide. Take a bucket and gather pipis or other shellfish. or go fishing for flounder, snapper or kahawai. A short walk to the end of the coastal road and you can surf cast in the channel.

Or visit Ohiwa Reserve where you may see glowworms and can walk up to the Pa site for the most amazing views. A short walk along the beach is another little settlement called Bryans Beach.

A 10 minute drive takes you into historic Opotiki which has a New World Supermarket for all your supplies, an interesting Museum and an assortment of local shops and cafes. Visit the Information Centre for all the local attractions.

Bring your bike to explore the Motu Trails cycleways; ride along the beach on the sand dunes on the eastern side of Opotiki.

Ohope is 20 mins drive and Whakatane is 30 mins drive, a thriving coastal town with all amenities, great cafes, movie theatre and the harbour where you can book a trip to White Island, an active volcano.
