This comfortable space adorned with mid century furniture including record player and homeware is a home away from home for you to relax and unwind.

Wander the myriad of tracks that crisscross the bush to find quiet spaces to read or just sit and think. Soak in the cedar hot tub under the massive ancient Puriri trees listening to the Morepork, Tui and Kereru (giant native wood pigeon).

Enjoy the fantastic local walks close by, visit a vineyard or two or ride a horse along Pakiri beach. If you just want to relax, pop a steak on the BBQ by the outdoor fire or just snuggle up in bed and watch movies on your very own super wide projection screen.

Perfect Space for two or bring some friends and pitch a tent.

Extra friends are welcome at $75 per head.

  • Great hideaway

    Great hideaway. Fantastic facilities and felt very relaxed right from the start. Fun retro feel with modern features.

  • This place is amazing! My partner and I had an absolute blast...

    This place is amazing! My partner and I had an absolute blast here. It is secluded, quiet, private and relaxing. The outdoor bath/shower was simply magical. Mark was easy to deal with and was respectful of our space and privacy. The turntable was a nice touch and extra points for having Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon on vinyl ?? Highly recommend for a nature/bush retreat while still having access to creature comforts and we are already planning our next trip there.

  • Came here for my babymoon

    Came here for my babymoon. It was a wonderful stay. My husband and I didnt want to leave. Sue was lovely, she showed us around and provided us with breakfast pretty much. Bread, fresh eggs, milk, bacon etc. The batch had everything we needed. The hot tub was so relaxing and so was the outdoor bath. We couldn't get enough. Such a lovely place to come and relax. It was raining when we were here but I think that's what made it more relaxing. We had the fire going, had board games in the room and we were still able to use the hot tub as the trees covered and protected us from the rain. I think this batch would be even more amazing in winter! Thanks Sue & Mark :)
