Molesworth’s is a holiday home available for rental by Island Accommodation on Great Barrier Island.

It is perched on a hill overlooking Mulberry Grove Beach, Tryphena. The two bedrooms, which comfortably sleep four are perfect for a family. The house has a large yard for games and kicking back, with a small private garden at the rear for a quiet coffee and newspaper in the morning.

Molesworth’s is tech-friendly, recent upgrades to the solar power system allow you to enjoy your laptop, tablet or mobile phones. Work on your journal or pipe your play list through our stereo with mp3 plug-in and enjoy other gadgets in a planet-friendly state-of-mind never once using a pica-watt of mains power.

Molesworth’s typifies the New Zealand bach. Cosy and bathed in sunshine, you look down through the pohutukawa trees to the blue water of the bay only 150 metres away.

Sitting at the rear of a large, v-shaped section, the house looks west over beautiful Tryphena Harbour. The two bedroom house has comfy new furnishings and is surrounded by expansive lawn and screened by trees. The wrap-around deck, nearly as big as the house, has great views of the bay and surrounding hills.

Only minutes from the ferry and a short drive to the airfield, nearby there are a laundromat, post office, Irish pub, shops and historic sites. A beautiful, private place to base yourself to explore Great Barrier Island.

    This bach is quite small and compact, but was very nicely presented and we enjoying staying here. We had some very bad and wet weather but the bach kept us dry and sheltered and the only thing that is missing is somewhere to wash your feet before you come back in from walking in mud (or sand from the beach). Otherwise everything was great, it has all you need for a comfortable stay at the Barrier

    We throughly enjoyed our stay at the bach. The deck faces the setting sun - wonderful. Just could do with a BBQ then it would be 5 stars

    We loved the location and view this property offered. It was just what we needed. We loved great barrier and had a wonderful holiday. Feedback to note is there is no BBQ or Vodafone service at the bach as advertised. Please change your ad :)
