We know, you love it and want to book it! BUT WAIT, before you place an enquiry, please note that we will only allow a couple or a family to stay here. Groups of couples or singles will not be considered - sorry. Read on......

Lovers of modern architecture and bespoke design will be in heaven here! Unique in every way and the finest attention to detail has been made to ensure the property makes the most of its unique position.

From the moment you walk in you will be captivated by the enormous ranch slider which opens up 90% of the living room & allows you to enjoy the commanding sea views & gorgeous native bush on the fringe of the property. The slider opens to a huge 6 metres and gives the term ‘indoor-outdoor flow’ an entirely new meaning. Foodies will love the massive, well equipped kitchen.

We've got a brand new 43” full HD smart tv with NETFLIX, a hard drive with 100s of movies, and free wifi for your use or just download a movie on the Apple TV to watch.

The crowning glory of your stay will undoubtedly be the gorgeous cedar hot tub, one of the only ones in the area. This is no ordinary spa pool, soaking in the depths of a wooden tub is an entirely different experience to your typical kiwi spa pool and the uninterupted views from the tub will leave you spellbound. If you’re in the tub during the day you’ll enjoy myriad birdlife from the native bush only metres away, at night you can see the milky way due to the rural setting and lack of light pollution.

The 1 acre section is perfect for dogs.

Mangawhai Village is only 10 minutes drive and Te Arai beach is about 12 minutes drive (avoid the crowds, go to Te Arai not Mangawhai!) but if you really want to join the traffic at the Mangawhai Surf Beach, it is only 15 minutes drive.

PLEASE NOTE - master bedroom has no blinds as we enjoy gazing at the stars while in bed!

  • Awesome property with spectacular view of Mangawhai

    Awesome property with spectacular view of Mangawhai. The house is very clean, loved the decors and the kitchen is very well equipped not to mention the unlimited broadband that my kids truly enjoyed. Oh! I almost forgot the cedar spa that we also enjoyed. It was indeed a great holiday. Waking up with stunning view, soaking in the spa with peaceful and amazing view and staying on the deck at night looking at the stars. In the clouds is just beautiful and we will definitely come back!

    Beautiful batch. We got married on Saturday and the Bach-In the Clouds was an absolutely wonderful place to unwind from all the wedding madness. 10/10 Would stay again :-)

    In The Clouds is a stunner of a holiday home! We loved the house from the moment we stepped inside. The views from the deck and the cedar hot tub are incredible! The house is located in a completely private spot but Mangawhai Village is only a short 10-minute drive away. We had a great stay and are looking forward to returning in the future!
