  • Warm, sunny, comfortable family-friendly cottage with space for the kids to explore
  • Private fully self-contained cabin nestled in the bush available for those wanting some extra space
  • Only minutes away from a number of swimming and surfing beaches, diving, boat ramps and restaurants

This peaceful, private and sunny hilltop hideaway is just a short drive from the beach. The light, modern and relaxed cottage has plenty of room for all the family, with a well equipped modern farmhouse style kitchen and two living areas. The large garden has stunning rural views and native bush for the kids to explore as well as vegetable and herb gardens for you to forage in!

Fling open the doors in the summer and entertain in the gorgeous garden looking out over the valley. Or cosy up in the winter in front of the log burning stove with some home baking after a winter walk whilst the kids watch a movie.

There is a fully self-contained newly built cabin available for 2 extra guests. This has a kitchen, mezzanine floor with bed, bathroom, covered deck and BBQ. Perfect for those wanting a bit of space and privacy!

There is plenty of room for boats, kayaks or surfboards.

Situated just outside Ngunguru village, we are a 3 minute drive away from the beautiful tidal estuary where you can swim, launch the boat, fish, kayak, water ski, paddle board and watch the dolphins all year round if you are lucky! Only a short drive away are the fabulous swimming beaches of Whangaumu Bay, Matapouri Bay, Whale Bay, Wooleys Bay, and the surf beach Sandy Bay. Tutukaka is only over the hill where you will find restaurants, galleries, shops, diving and fishing charters.

If walking is what you like to do, we are located along the Te Araroa Track between Sandy Bay and Ngunguru so you have a fabulous selection of bush and coastal walks to choose from.

Why not get the whole family surfing?!

With the O’Neill Surf Academy operating from our 15 acre property, we can offer you great rates on our range of surf lessons during your stay, or rent a board from us for the day! Contact us for more inspiration! (Catering options may be available with lessons).

Cabin alone may be available for rent for 2 people at a reduced nightly rate. Please enquire for availability.

Special conditions: The cottage and cabin share the 15 acre property with our family home and business, so we are available to assist your stay in any way we can, including giving you total privacy! We would prefer families and no parties. Our driveway is steep but suitable for all vehicles and worth the view at the top! Boat parking is available at the bottom of the hill. The mezzanine floor in the cabin is accessible by ladder, so only suitable for able- bodied adults.
