Le Cabanon is a purpose built chalet, designed with nature based peace and exclusivity in mind.Nestled under the pohutukawa trees, it is luxurious, eco-sensitive and romantic. Private views of Tryphena Harbour and the setting sun from the spacious deck.

We have furnished the chalet with comfortable, functional and unique furniture.

Nestled in regenerating bush high above Tryphena Harbour, but a three minute drive from the beach, shops, cafe and pub

Birds will greet you, and if you are lucky the seemingly tame and astonishingly dexterous fantails will amuse you while you are relaxing in the giant bean bags on the front deck.

And at the end of the day lie in the comfortable king size bed and watch the vivid night sky through the windows

Le Cabanon has all the facilities you require including a fabulous shower, flush toilet, crisp linen and luxurious towels, cooking and eating equi[ment including a gas hob and barbeque, tea, coffee and milk.

A Bluetooth Bose Soundsystem is installed so you can play your favourite music,bring your favourite CD's or listen to your favourite radio station

Explore the beautiful Great Barrier (Aotea) Island or just relax on the deck or in the nearby garden.

A gas barbeque is situated on the front deck - so you can enjoy the views and the sunset as you cook you evening meal


The Cabin is located 500 metres up a steep (at times) track which ensures a private experience. Although some 2 wheel drive vehicles can achieve the drive we recommend 4 wheel drive vehicles. These can be hired on island.

Great Barrier Island (Aotea) is the only Island to be awarded the Dark Sky Sanctuary Status

100 km east of Auckland. 2/3rd's of the Island is conservation park, and it boasts stunning white sand beaches - both surf and safe swimming. Natural hot pools, gorgeous treks, of all grades etc etc

Special conditions:

4 wheel drive vehicles are recommended to negotiate the fairly steep driveway. In saying this many 2 wheel cars do negotiate it with no trouble.


As the chalet is off the grid we have to say NO to hairdryers and other high wattage appliances.

Should you require we can have a bottle of Veuve Cliquot Champagne chilled for your arrival

If you are wanting a late checkout - do ask - if there are no immediate bookings we will be happy to accommodate you

  • We really enjoyed our week-long stay at Le Cabanon

    We really enjoyed our week-long stay at Le Cabanon. It's a simple but well-appointed and comfortable cabin, with some really nice touches, close to Tryphena's amenities and a good base for exploring the rest of the island. Angela was very helpful and, although she was away while we were there, her property manager, Jess, took good care of us. We would happily stay again.

    This is a quiet, clean, simple and utterly beautiful spot tucked on the hill next to Tryphena. We loved our stay, the bed is incredibly comfortable, the kitchen is minimal but everything you would need for two, the bathroom is lovely especially with the window looking directly into thick bush while you shower. There is so much privacy, simplicity and beauty at this property. It is perfect for a couple looking for a getaway or a special occasion.
