Welcome to a superbly appointed luxury self-catered holiday home. Nestled in mature secluded grounds, the house sits just a 200m flat walk from Kowharewa Bay beach on the beautiful Tutukaka Coast, gateway to the famous Poor Knights Islands.

Kowhai Lodge contains all modern conveniences, including a spa pool (Jacuzzi), petanque and lawn croquet grounds, bar-b-que and outdoor furniture, and is maintained to a high standard by the owners all the year round. Indoors, the spacious open plan living, including modern kitchen, allows excellent indoor/outdoor flow to two north facing, yet sheltered decks.

Excellent diving, fishing, watersports, and safe swimming are available, and guests have the complimentary use of kayaks, fishing rods and golf clubs.

Close by are shops, restaurants and beauty spa facilities, as well as charter facilities for fishing, diving and day trips to the Poor Knights. The local golf course is ten minutes away in Ngunguru, or players can enjoy 18 hole golf at four other well appointed courses in Whangarei.

The Lodge is fully equipped and furnished, and owners are close at hand to assist you and make your stay as comfortable as possible, and can provide you with wealth of local knowledge.

    This property was beautiful and private with a huge lawn to play some outdoor cricket, croquet and football or relax on the sun lounges. The house was well equipped and well set out. A nice close walk to the beach.
